PDFCreator is a free PDF converter tool that allows you to create a PDF file (Portable Document Format) from any Windows program.

If you can print your document, you can convert it to PDF with PDFCreator. And not only PDF, you can convert the document to other popular formats as well, like PNG, JPEG and TIF.

Creating PDF files with PDFCreator is easy. It works as a virtual printer and can convert anything to PDF that you can print. Simply print your document to the PDFCreator printer to start the conversion.

PDFCreator transforms the generic printer commands generated by programs into PDF commands and stores them in a PDF file. Use it like a printer in Word, StarCalc or any other Windows application.

The program converts every printable document to PDF and many other formats.

  • Convert your Documents to PDF, JPG, PNG, TIF and more
  • Merge multiple documents to one file
  • Profiles make frequently used settings available with one click
  • Use automatic saving to have a fully automated PDF printer

Professional Edition features allow you to control and secure your output to achieve the results you desire.

  • Compress and resize images to reduce the file size
  • Encrypt your PDFs with AES and protect them with a password
  • Prevent unauthorized access to your PDFs by changing the security settings
  • Use the COM interface to control the program from your application

PDFCreator Features:

  • Create PDFs from any program that is able to print
  • Send generated files via eMail
  • Digitally sign your PDFs to ensure that you are the author and the file has not been modified
  • AutoSave files to folders and filenames based on Tags like Username, Computername, Date, Time etc.
  • Security: Encrypt PDFs and protect them from being opened, printed etc
  • Create PDF/A files for long term archives
  • Create more than just PDFs: PNG, JPG, TIFF, BMP, PCX, PS, EPS
  • Merge multiple files into one PDF
  • Easy Install: Just say what you want and everything is installed
  • Terminal Server: the program also runs on Terminal Servers without problems
  • PDFCreator is free, even for commercial use! It is Open Source and released under the Terms of the GNU General Public License.

Plus Edition does not contain advertisements during the setup. This results in a faster installation and a smaller download size.

Changes in version 5.0.2:


  • PDFCreator Terminal Server is running on Windows Enterprise multi-session again.

Bugs fixed

  • User tokens without a colon character to separate the key and the value lead to an exception.
  • The split token was case sensitive and only worked with capital letters.
  • Group policies: The shared settings filename was case sensitive and could ignore a file, even if it existed.

Changes in version 5.0.1:

Bugs fixed

  • PDFCreator Terminal Server: The account selection for the license service in the setup could not handle an “@” in the user name.
  • The owner password was not saved, resulting in a request during an interactive conversion or an auto-save error.
  • The content of the background action was placed above the actual content instead of in the background.
  • The settings migration from an older PDFCreator version could cause the font for the signature action to be missing.
  • PDFCreator Free: The signature action failed, when the received time stamp was larger than 4 KB.

Changes in version 5.0.0:


  • The app is now compatible with Windows Enterprise Multi-Session. Please use Professional Edition  (and not Terminal Server) on Multi-Session. The licensing is based on an activated user instead of the machine.
  • Version 5.0.0 has been completely redesigned to give it a tidy, modern look.
  • Auto-merge: When saving to an existing file, you can choose that the new document will automatically be merged with the existing file.
  • When signing a PDF, you can now insert images into the visual signature, such as a scan of a company stamp – or you draw your signature digitally in the signature settings.
  • Professional Edition and Terminal Server: Split a document into multiple documents by using a special split token.
  • Professional Edition and Terminal Server: New group policy to specify the name of the shared settings file – to assign different settings to different user groups.
  • FTP and SFTP now support custom ports by adding the port to the hostname.
  • Import a single profile from an exported settings file.

Bugs fixed

  • Professional Edition and Terminal Server: Due to its unique formatting, files created by Microsoft Word caused issues when parsing for user tokens.
  • Under some circumstances, print jobs did not arrive in PDFCreator in the correct order, e.g. when the first document took longer to print than the second. PDFCreator now sorts new print jobs based on the time when the print job was started, which ensures the correct order even if printing one document takes longer.
  • The usage of encryption or signature action could result in an unwanted reset to the default action order.
  • When a new version was available, the ‘Skip Version’ option did not work in combination with the standby and the hint was shown at each start.
  • During an update an installed license key was not displayed in the setup.
