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

Changes in version 5.1.1:

Bugs fixed

  • An ApplicationException could randomly occur when PDFCreator returned from standby.
  • Opening a document with PDF Architect from the quick actions or the history resulted in a PDF Architect recommendation window if the PDF Architect installation was finished while PDFCreator was already in use.

Changes in version 5.1.0:


  • PDFCreator Free, PDFCreator Professional, PDFCreator Terminal Server are now ready for ARM64.
  • Convert images directly to PDFs without the necessity to print. Therefore the user is able to set the page size and orientation for the resulting document.
  • Users now have the option to merge files automatically before or after the modify actions are executed.
  • User Tokens are now able to handle full paths in their value.
  • The merge view was enhanced with a button to add further files.
  • The PDFCreator is now able to handle escape character functionality when dealing with User Tokens. Please refer to the User Tokens section of the user guide for information on how to use them.
  • The context menu integration can be en- or disabled in the setup.

Bugs fixed

  • Determining User Tokens sometimes resulted in unexpected behavior. The functionality of the User Tokens is much more stable now.
  • Creating image formats did not work when user tokens or certain modify actions were enabled.
  • Clearing the log file could lead to an error, if the file was still locked.
  • File attachments in the direct E-mail action did not have the correct file extensions.
  • When creating new accounts while a print job was running, the print job window could show a message that the new account does not exist.
  • Shared settings will no longer modify stored settings in the registry.

Other Changes

  • PDFCreator now uses Ghostscript 10.01.1, which brings improved performance and stability. This also fixes a problem that directly processing PDF files was not working anymore under certain circumstances.
  • Certain application send the name of unsaved files with a leading “*” to the PDFCreator, which gets replaced with an “_”. A leading “*” is now removed by our default title replacement settings.
