doPDF 8.0 Build 906

doPDF installs itself as a virtual PDF printer driver so after a successful installation will appear in your Printers and Faxes list. To convert to PDF, you just have to print the document to doPDF, the free pdf converter. Open a document (with Microsoft Word, WordPad, NotePad or any other software), choose Print and select doPDF. It will ask you where to save the PDF file and when finished, the PDF file will be automatically opened in your default PDF viewer.

What's new in this version:

  • New: Add-ins for Microsoft Office that allow one-click PDF conversion from Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio and Publisher
  • New: Bookmarks from Microsoft Word are recognized and converted to PDF bookmarks (only when using the add-in)
  • New: Hidden links in Microsoft Office documents are recognized and converted to active links in the PDF file (only when using the add-in)
  • New: Modified installer to show add-in installation as an optional step
  • Fix: Installer failed if Windows username had two names
  • Fix: Check for updates was verifying daily even if it was set to weekly
  • Fix: Version history was showing changes for previous build numbers (older than current build)
  • Fix: Corrected requirement information and added help sections for the add-in conversion in the help file

Do any of these pdf creators have a simple option to allow you to save a colour document as a greyscale-only pdf??
("Simple", as my co-workers would need to be able to use it).

I ask because our network printer will accept pdfs, but if there is the tiniest smidgen of colour anywhere (e.g a logo) then it will go full-colour mode with expensive paper/ink/leasing costs. Unfortunately changing its behaviour is not an option.

This version 8 still comes in at 39 MB vs. 4 MB for version 7, and it requires an internet connection to download .NET Framework, which apparently it now finds necessary. Previous versions do not require this. Does anyone understand the rationale behind turning something as simple as a PDF printer utility into this bloatware product? As "alphoneseM" says, there are better alternatives out there. What is wrong with software designers these days?
