one of the easiest and fastest ways to create a PDF file on any computer

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

In my work sometimes I get documents by mail that I must use that same day and this tool allows me to transform them to PDF for use in a variety of computers and mobile devices. The PDF file seems to me the best option for the job because it allows to keep the format of the original file without altering it. With Nova Pdf I can convert them quickly and safely. Not only do I use it for work, I also use it to make the list of my exercises in the gym and have them with me on my device. This program is very useful.

Pros
for being a virtual printer you can convert any document to PDF just by selecting Nova dpf as the printer and you're done. No extra configuration is needed, only the program is installed and ready to be used. Something very good is that the links of the original file are maintained when it is converted to pdf and they are still active links. It is added to the office tools to directly make the PDFs from those applications. has support for a large number of languages.

Cons
I would not have anything bad to add to this program, it is lightweight and fulfills all the functions I expect from a virtual printer. I have never had problems using it EVER. I recommend it 1000%.

The simplest, really useful and necessary software!

My experience with novaPDF and usage of it started from the days when I was pretty much struggling with haveing the Word documents (and some TXT files) converted to the PDF file in an easy way. Coming from the amount of the work and the quantity I have to deal with daily, novaPDF is always a really huge helps once it comes to converting the documents and get them ready for sending as well as for the direct printing. Currently, novaPDF is used throughout my whole group. It helps to save time and money and to avoid those so-called free converting online service, which are huts of spam, basically. I'd highly suggest this product to anyone who is dealing daily with the massive amount of the documents and its conversions.

Pros
- Completely Easy to Use - Handy and always reliable. No lagging or any other complications - User-friendly and easily installable. - Easy to train a complete newbie about using the software. It basically takes maximum 1 hour to fully explain its functionalities. - Easily set the password to the PDFs - Microsoft Office integration.

Cons
The only cons I can find for this software is the pricing. I personally think it's a bit high, however, for some organizations/individuals who are having a massive amount of documents to deal with this might be really worth paying for.

novaPDF Standard 8 is a simple and straightforward, that has a unique way of converting and creating PDF files. It acts as a virtual PDF printer for Windows which creates PDF files from any application that has a Print menu, button or dialog. With add-ons for Microsoft Office, it allows you to save Office files to PDF format with just a click.

Pros
Simple and well-organized UI, designed for all types of users. The applications has two main user interfaces, one to manage the virtual printers, and the other to use different features of the application and adjust preferences. Convert formats like DOC, XLS, PPT, PUB, DOCX, XLSX, PPTX, PUBX, HTML, TXT, and more to PDF by using the print function of different application. Add-ons for Microsoft Office applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, Visio. These allow one-click conversion to PDF. Create password protected PDF files for safe distribution and signed digitally for authentication purposes. PDF files are protected and secured using 256-bit AES encryption. Merge different files into one PDF file. Can be used as a desktop printer, can be shared and added as a network printer to print from it remotely. Adjust page, document, graphics, links, bookmarks, font, and watermark settings.

Cons
The applications stops responding for a bit when accessing profile manager or settings. Stutters and stops responding during the conversion process, even on a decent spec PC. (i5 processor with 12GB RAM and SSD)

PDF export - if you need more than the Word feature

Used occasionally for free trial

Review Source: Capterra

I recommend this software for you if you save pdf files often and you need more settings than what Word gives you.

Pros
However Microsoft Word also has a function to save files to pdf format, this software offers better option with more settings. I can add more than one document and merge them into a single pdf file. It has add-ins to Microsoft Office, and I can easily select the file options: clickable links, file size optimization. embed fonts etc. When we save the file the program works as a printer. The software installes an editor also where we can set up even more the pdf file.

Cons
I have used the Standard version and encryption and digital signature only available at the pro edition.

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Use this app is so easy, because it is installed like a virtual printer, you juts have to select and later appear a menu with a big range of options to transform your file into a pdf and transform what you need, like the sheet size, graphics, if you want to add a watermark or a sticker, you can also add a sign or make a password to your file, and so many other features. This is one of the more powerful PDF conversors in the market.

Cons
In the beggining for me was a little difficult to get used to this software because is not common to transform a file through a printer, but with time I feel comfortable and quickly manage the software and start using almost everyday.

NovaPDF - Great software for printing pdfs, append or prepend pages based on your custom templates

I needed a pdf printing software for printing all my invoices and receipts digitally. NovaPDF is the best I could find. It allows me to print multiple pages, appending or pre-pending pages. I can set a custom template with my specific paths and options for saving the files. This is helping considerably by saving time and allow for a better file organization.

Pros
Big pro for the ability to append and prepend pages in an existing pdf based on your template paths and options.

Cons
The printing process was a bit slow, but the current version 9.6 fixed that. In fact, it depends on the size of the printing.
