PDF Printer

We are looking for a PDF printer driver freeware software application that will work on Windows 7 64bit operating system. The main function that it should have is that it must automatically append documents one after the other - so that when we are done with the batch,we are able to print the whole batch out in one go automatically rather than having to print one at a time. We are currently using primoPDF and it doesnt quite give us that function and we have also tried tinyPDF but that only works on 32 bit not 64.

Please help - urgent

Thank you

    I agree with Macroshadow.

    One of the benefits of Bullzip over other PDF printers (in addition to the very specific real-world application that you are looking for) is that can be initially setup to require little-to-no user-interaction whatsoever: when the document is printed, it's printed and saved based on pre-determined settings. It really can save time and headaches.

    If you are looking to create PDFs of Office documents, the new versions of Office contain built in PDF creation tools that are quite good. I would definitely recommend the built in tools if possible.

    File - Save As - (select PDF as the file type).

    Otherwise I would have to x2 on CutePDF!

    The problem with Bullzip is the licensing..  It's free for up to 10 users, then you have to move to the commercial version.  CutePDF is great.. it's free and rock solid :-)
