Automation for PDFCreator


HotFolder is an open source application to be used in combination with PDFCreator. It allows the creation of special folders on any computer, files added to these folders are automatically converted to PDF or image files using PDFCreator. HotFolder is included in PDFCreator Business, PDFCreator Terminal Server and PDFCreator Plus.


Automate your workflow

HotFolder lets you automate the use of PDFCreator. All printable files moved into your folder will automatically be printed to PDFCreator and thus converted to PDF or Image files. No need to manually start the print jobs anymore! That’s especially useful if you have a lot of files to convert. And by using PDFCreator’s auto-save functionality they are also automatically saved to a folder of your choice.

Allows use of all PDFCreator features

When converting files with HotFolder you can of course take advantage of all the awesome PDFCreator features like password protection, digital signatures and much more. And because HotFolder uses the PDFCreator to convert files, you can use the settings you already created. Just assign the profile of your choice to the printer HotFolder uses and you’re ready to go!

Create several HotFolders with different conversion settings

Want to use different profiles without switching between them? Just assign them to different PDFCreator printers and create a HotFolder for each of them. All your HotFolders will be watched simultaneously.
