HotFolder is an 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 Professional and PDFCreator Terminal Server.


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 is 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 many more. And since HotFolder uses 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 are 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.
