TOP TIPS - May 2008

How to batch convert MS Word DOCS to PDF
Products required are: Batch & Print Pro 3.xx or above and Adobe Acrobat Full version, see www.adobe.com

1. Install full version of Adobe Acrobat, in printer properties setup the "Adobe PDF" printer driver to print to a folder e.g. c:\output, disable the view after print.
Example screen shot of options to set below:-


2. Download and install our tool Batch & Print Pro from here:
http://www.traction-software.co.uk/batchprint/

3. To run in the interface start Batch & Print Pro and add the .doc files to the list and click Print

4. To run on the command line e.g.
CD "C:\Program Files\Traction Software\Batch & Print Pro"
"Batch And Print" -P"Adobe PDF" c:\files\*.doc -p -q

It uses MS Word to print the docs to pdf so you won't have any issues with fonts etc.

5. A way to improve performance is to change the DOC print association to WordPad.exe instead of Winword.exe, see: http://www.traction-software.co.uk/batchprint/associations.htm
e.g. "C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe" /p "%1"
