Features

Is there a feature that you would like to see implemented in novaPDF? If so, please contact us and share your thoughts, you have our promise that we will study it and if it proves to be an useful feature we will incorporate it in the next release.

Universal Printing

Using novaPDF you convert to PDF any type of printable document (i.e. DOC, XLS, PPT, PUB, DOCX, XLSX, PPTX, PUBX, HTML, TXT,...), accessing its functionality through a printer driver interface. If novaPDF is installed as the default printer, you can simply click the "Print" button from any Windows application to have your PDF created.

Merge PDF Files

You can append or insert the content of the document being converted to an existing PDF file.

Font Embedding

novaPDF supports TrueType, OpenType and Type1 fonts and allows you to embed the fonts (or only font subsets) to ensure portability. You can also choose which fonts to be automatically embedded or never embedded, as well as forcefully embed fonts with restrictions.

Auto-save PDF Files

When creating a PDF file you can have novaPDF prompt you each time where to save the PDF file, or you can define predefined auto-save settings. This way the PDF files will be generated and saved without any additional interaction.

Import/Export Profiles

The printing profiles can be exported or imported into different installations, so that you can easily transfer them from one computer to another.

Public Profiles

Available in the server editions, these profiles are created on the PDF server computer and are automatically propagated to all client computers. You can configure some profiles to save the PDF files in a folder on server and all client computers will generate the PDF files in that folder. When using propagated public profiles, you can disallow client computers to switch to a private profile, forcing them to use the settings from the PDF server.

Compatibility

Works on both 32 and 64-bit Windows operating systems and doesn't require 3rd party programs such as GhostScript or runtime environments like .NET Framework.

PDF/A Compliance

Creates PDF files compliant with the PDF/A-1b specification for RGB colorspace thus can be used for long-term archiving of documents in PDF format. PDF/A is a PDF file format used for long-term archiving of documents in electronic format that uses PDF Reference version 1.4.

Private Profiles

Define printing profiles for future use, each with its own settings for page size, resolution, fonts, compression, security, signatures, bookmarks, watermarks, save settings, etc. This way you can switch between different printing profiles without having to modify the settings again.

Reduce PDF File Size

Images can be down-sampled, converted or compressed to reduce the size of the resulting PDF file. Text can be compressed or converted too.

International Character Support

Supports international character sets, enabling users to generate PDF files using almost any Latin, Cyrillic or Asian character set.

Multi-language support

You can choose a language for the interface during installation or change it later from its menu.
