Any software that attempts to present an alternative to Adobe's sluggish PDF software is fine by me and novaPDF does an impressive job at rivalling the industry standard package.

novaPDF is a PDF creator that allows you to easily create high-quality searchable PDF files. The first thing you'll notice is that it's very easy to use because once installed, all you have to do is select "Print" from the file menu of virtually any application you're using. The reason being is that novaPDF acts like a virtual printer. You can create just about any type of PDF file including bookmarks, PDF links, public and private documents as well as PDF watermarks and perform PDF compression. Although it's very straightforward with a fully comprehensive tutorial and manual, there's even free support which is unusual in an unregistered piece of software (although registered users are dealt with first). You have pretty much full control over what you add to the documents including the ability to embed fonts and insert images of different resolutions. If your images or text are unusually large - don't worry, you can compress the entire document afterwards no matter what it contains.

At just a fraction of the cost of Adobe's software, novaPDF is a superb answer to your PDF needs and it also enables you to do your bit for the environment by using less paper.


  • Added Text Watermarks option
  • Optimized text compression algorithm - the size of PDF files is now reduced by up to 80% (for documents that contain mainly text)
  • Finnish and Arabic user interface localizations added

Print any document to PDF file using novaPDF!

Using novaPDF Pro you can easily create high quality searchable PDF files in an affordable and reliable way from any Windows application. It installs as a printer driver and helps you generate the PDF files by simply selecting the "print" command from any application (you can convert Word documents, Excel sheets, PowerPoint presentations, AutoCad drawings, emails or web pages).

You can password protect the PDF files you create and permissions can be restricted to prevent the document from being viewed, printed, modified, copied or annotated. Your PDF files will be secured with 40-bit and 128-bit encryption algorithms.

novaPDF can detect the headings in the printed document 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. novaPDF can append/insert content to an existing PDF file. It also offers a PDF overlay option.

novaPDF Pro is compatible with Windows 10/8/7/2000/XP/2003 Server/2008 ServerVista and requires approximately 10MB of free disk space for the installation. It does not require Adobe Acrobat or GhostScript to be installed to generate the pdf file.

novaPDF can automatically detect hyperlinks in a document and convert them into clickable links in the resulted PDF file. This option is specifically useful when you want to distribute a PDF file on the web and you want the links included in the original document to be accessible for users clicking on a hyperlink from the PDF file.

novaPDF Pro has a lot of features that allows you to: modify the paper size (or create new custom page sizes for large format printing), modify the resolution (from 72 to 2400 dpi), change page orientation (portrait, landscape), fonts embedding, compress text and images, send the generated PDF file via email and much more. The user interface is translated in several languages.
