PDF Conversion
Apr 21st, 2016 at 7:12pm
 
Hello you awesome people at Watch Directory (Great Product),

There are currently the plugins to automatically print PDF files and the Word files however I was wondering if there would be a way to send files to a pre-configured PDF printer that I use from PDF Forge. The printer allows all kinds of different file types to be "printed" into PDF form. I was looking to create some kind of monitored folder that would shoot the file to the PDF Printer and place it in a network share. I tried a couple of mock ups with the Word and PDF printer but I could not trick it or get it to work. I am not sure if it is even possible.

Thank you in advance!

Hello Chase,

For an application to be able to "print" a file, the app needs to know how to read and render the file. IT has to know the format of the file to be printed.
