Platinum now integrates with the Microsoft Print to PDF printer built-in to Windows 10, Windows Server 2016 and above and avoids the need to install a third-party PDF printer driver.
After updating Platinum you will find three new standard print records for use on Windows 10, Windows Server 2016 and above PCs:
- 'Print to PDF' - prints the document to a PDF file and shows a "Save As" box to allow you to enter or amend the file name or location to save as.
- 'Print to email' - prints the document to a PDF file and shows a "Send Email" box attaching the PDF to an email message and allowing you to enter or amend the email message before sending. Note: you must have the Catalyst "SXMail" module in order to send an email using this method.
- 'Print to email (silent)' - as above but sends the email using a standard message without prompting, useful for the Retention Centre for example.
Existing links to PDF995 and other third-party PDF printers continue to work as before, of course, but this adds another option now for those who wish to avoid installing third-party drivers.
