Faster results with PDFCreator Server 2.1

Our mission with PDFCreator Server 2.1 was to give administrators more control and more time. Hence, we created a smoother workflow that supports you in delivering results more quickly. At the same time, you will have a better overview and improved usability. All in all, this version offers new possibilities to increase efficiency.

Download PDFCreator Server 2.1

One of the improvements of PDFCreator Server 2.1 is that it allows you to make configurations without having to stop the service. Furthermore, every time new updates are available, they will start to download immediately in order to reduce waiting time.

Another factor that will save you time and unneccessary tasks is that files which were saved in the temp folder after they had been forwarded by e-mail/FTP will now automatically be deleted after a few days in order to free up space.

The new version gives you more control and a better overview of what is going on. For example, whenever a new version is available, there will be a full change log listed for you to see every fix and addition before you start the download.

Furthermore, a new “View Password” button shows you the actual characters that are being typed during password creation. New buttons have also been added for queues, where you can now more easily add, rename or delete printers for queues.
