How to add novaPDF to the Send To context menu
The Send To context menu reads its entries from a folder stored on your drive, where a list of shorcuts are contained. To add novaPDF in that Send To list of entries:
Start Windows Explorer (go to Start->Programs->Accessories->Windows Explorer)
Go to the SendTo folder of your profile.
In 2000/XP it can be found in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\SendTo (username will depend on the user's menu that you want to change so the relative path is actually this one %systemroot%\Profiles\<user>\SendTo).
There is an easier way, if you go to Start->Run type in sendto and press Enter (this will open the Sendto folder in Windows Explorer).
In Windows Vista, the SendTo folder is located in C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo.
Open the Printers and Faxes folder (Start -> Settings -> Printers and Faxes)
Click on the novaPDF Printer and drag it to the SendTo directory
This will create a shortcut to it and if you want to rename it to something else by pressing F2 when it's selected
