    The file size can be controled by the quality levels and by the parameters in the Save as dialog, mainly by the DPI and compression settings.

    Ensure, that the PDF24 Windows Service is running. Do not stop the service, otherwise the PDF printer will not work. If the service is stopped, start the service.

    If you have print jobs in the printer queue, you can remove the jobs directly in the GUI of the printer queue.

    The problem with the temp folder: Open the TEMP directory of your user profile and remove the PDF24 subfolder. This should solve the problem.

    If you do not have the latest version (which is currently 8.4.0), install this one, because we have fixed some bugs regarding these issues.

    The company behind the software was founded in 2006 and PDF24 itself is a few months older. Since then, the software has been developed step by step.

    Please try the latest version of the PDF24 Creator. Did you install the PDF24 Creator into the default folder or did you change the install directory? If you have changed the install directory, what folder did you use?

    If you don't get an answer, it's usually because no one has an answer to your question.

    Thank you for that feedback. If you had some install issues which you have solved, you could share your solution here if it could help other people.

    We continue to develop the software to make it better and more universal.

    The PDF24 Creator determines the file name from the print job name. If the print jo9b name just use Microsoft Visual Basic as name, than the PDF24 Creator will use that name. You have to set a proper print job name in order to get better names in the PDF24 Assistant.

    You could also invoke the doctool to print the files:

    pdf24-docTool.exe -shellPrint –printerName "PRINTER_NAME" "FILE1" "FILE2" ...

    Hi,

    the trick is to use quotes around the file argument. The following command should work:

    "C:\Program files\Office\Outlook.exe" /c ipm.note /a "$file"

    Interesting. I've put this feature request 0n the list, so that we will add it to one of the next versions.

    Just as information: You can also reduce the size of PDF files online

    When outlook does not send the right filename, then the pdf24 can not determine the name from the print job and outbind://2-00000000CDD21EC4E8BC8E419987BD5255E30EF84B26400 is not the right file name.

    What print job name does outlook 2003 use? You could temporarily disable the PDF24 Windows Service to not process the print jobs and then you can print from outlook and then open the printer queue to see all print jobs. What name does outlook use?

    Hi,

    you can already disable the link to the online PDF tools via a registry entry. The config is located under the PATH HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/WOW6432Node/PDFPrint

    Set the DWORD value NoOnlinePdfTools=1 to disable the link to the online PDF tools.

    This option is available since version 8.0.0

    Do you use the latest version of the the PDF24 Creator? This is version 8.2.1.

    Sorry, we can't reproduce this issue on our test machines. Could it be, that the settings app can not write to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/WOW6432Node/PDFPrint?

    You could monitor this with an monitoring app. The UpdateMode value stores the update mode.

    in reply to: XenApp terminal server - Performance issues #1879

    There are no special tuning flags which would accelerate merging PDF files. Merging is done via Ghostscript and if the process is slower on the terminal server than I would say that Ghostscript runs significantly slower on your terminal server. How fast the merging process is depends on the input files. Merging without Ghostscript (this would speed up merging) is still on our TODO. This feature, with Ghostscript as fall-back, will be available in one of the next releases.

    Press F12 to open the console. Then load your file and see whats happening in the console. Send the console outputs to forum@pdf24.org so that we can investigate further. Please do not post the console outputs here into the forum.

    I can't see any problems here. I've tested the settings and I can switch between the 3 options and regardless what I enable, the setting gets applied. The update settings are working correctly for me.
