Fastest Print to pdf Driver for automation?

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone have a recommendation on the fastest Print to pdf driver installable as a printer?

I have to automate thousands of print to pdfs.

I can use one default filename; the pdfs are immediately deleted.

I am currently using CutePDF Writer, which is great as a general use printer, but it is a huge bottleneck waiting for the Save As screen to come up and to send it a filename, etc.

Thanks!

PS: has to be made a system default printer


If I am too verbose, just say so. You don't need to run on and on.

Ya, that's sweet.

With the Auto-Save feature it is very fast and easy to automate for me.

I didn't fiddle with it (at all) but it was a little odd: with regular save, it asks for the Save a second time using standard Windows Save As dialog, but that is neither here nor there.

Awesome. Thanks.

You can use the COM interface to interact with PDFCreator which maybe better then automating the GUI. Have a look at what Ptrex posted.

Thanks! I believe that may actually help me a lot!
