Using novaPDF Pro, both individual users and businesses are able to create PDF documents and easily share them, making the process of collaboration more efficient. With just a few clicks you can have your company’s reports, contracts, workflows, agreements, marketing plans, spreadsheets, forms, products list, price list, charts, emails, or other printable documents converted in PDF format.

Its purpose is to enable users to exchange electronic documents easier, independently of the application in which they were initially created. The resulting PDF files can be viewed on any computer with a PDF viewer (reader) installed.

novaPDF Pro allows you to define different private or public printing profiles, each with its own printing to PDF settings. This feature is very useful if there are different users using the same computer (and each has different printing preferences) or if you are the only user but need different settings for printing documents.

This PDF creator can generate PDF files with embedded fonts. This means that your PDF files can be read and printed on any system without distributing your font separately while maintaining the original intended design. Furthermore, novaPDF Pro for Windows can embed only the characters used in that document, so that the size of the resulting PDF will be smaller.

You can personalize your documents by setting the document information (title, subject, author, keywords) and adding XMP Metadata info. This feature is useful also if you want to publish your PDF files on the Web, as search engines will index your PDF files and use the document information to display it in the results. novaPDF can create PDF/A compliant PDF files, thus it is ideal for long-term archiving of documents.

novaPDF supports PDF Linearization. Also called a fast web view, PDF linearization allows the creation of PDF files that can be easily viewed via the web browser. Instead of downloading the entire PDF file at once, the PDF will be "streamed" in the browser page-by-page.

Features and Highlights

Create Standard PDF files
Creates 100% standard PDF files that can be viewed (or printed) using free PDF viewers (reader) (such as Adobe Acrobat Reader).

High-Quality searchable PDF
Creates high-quality searchable PDF files from all Microsoft Windows applications that support printing, retaining the original layout of the document.

PDF Security and Document Protection
You can secure your PDF documents by requiring others to enter a password in order to view or print the content of your document. Full 40-bit and 128-bit encryption are supported by novaPDF and the user is able to control whether the PDF can be viewed, printed, modified, copied, or annotated.

Network Printer Sharing (novaPDF Server)
novaPDF Server can be installed on one computer in a network environment (printer server) and used by any other computer in that network, without having to install it on each computer. Just share the printer on the printer server and use it to create PDF files from any other computer (can also be used on a Terminal Server or through Remote Desktop Connection).

Document Information
Set document information for PDF files (title, subject, author, keywords).

PDF Links Support
novaPDF Pro for PC can recognize links to files and formatted URLs (starting with "http://", "www", "mailto:" or "ftp://") that are included in the original document, and create them in the generated PDF file as links, so they can be opened by clicking them in the PDF viewer.

Send PDF via Email
You can configure novaPDF to automatically email the PDF files created. novaPDF can send them using the default email client, or you can enter the SMTP details and the PDF files will be sent directly from novaPDF, without interfering with your email client.

Multilanguage Support
You can choose a language for the interface of the app during installation or change it later from its menu. novaPDF is currently available in more than 20 languages (see list). PDF Bookmarks. novaPDF can detect the headings in the document to be printed and add bookmarks in the generated PDF files. You have to define the text attributes for the document headings (font, size, style, color) and for the generated bookmarks.

PDF Watermarks
You can stamp an entire PDF (or individual pages from it) with an image that can have transparency, rotation, opacity, color variation, or other effects.

Private Profiles
Define different private profiles, each with its own settings for page size, resolution, fonts, compression, document info, and save settings.

Public Profiles (novaPDF Server)
These public profiles are created on the server computer and are automatically propagated to all client computers. You can configure some profiles to save the PDF files in a folder on a server and all client computers will generate the PDF files in that folder.

Does not Require 3rd Party Software
Users can create PDF files without the need for 3rd party software (like Adobe Acrobat or GhostScript).

Optimized File Sizes
Images can be downsampled, converted, or compressed to reduce the size of the resulting pdf file. Text can be compressed or converted too. Font Embedding, Graphics Resolution, and Page Size Controls. Supports font embedding for all TrueType and OpenType fonts. Users can select the graphics resolution of the resulting PDF and can control PDF page size. novaPDF supports the creation of custom page sizes and automatic scaling in inches, millimeters, and points.

International Character Support
Supports international character sets, enabling users to generate PDF files using almost any Latin, Cyrillic or Asian character set.

nova PDF Pro allows users to create PDF files from virtually every Windows application, accessing its functionality through a printer driver interface. Once novaPDF is installed as the default printer, you can simply click the "Print" button from any Windows application to have your PDF created.

Note: 30 days trial version. Watermark on generated PDF files in demo version.
