novaPDF from Softland is a PDF creator that let users convert any type of printable documents into standard PDF files and novaPDF Lite 9 (Desktop) is the simplest edition, but still quite feature-full compared to other PDF creators.
novaPDF Lite edition does its main task very well, creating searchable PDF files (optionally PDF/A compliant), allowing private printing profiles, embedding fonts (TrueType, OpenType, Type1), adding document information and more. It is recommended for home users, who need basic PDF creation capabilities.
Using novaPDF Lite, both users and businesses are able to create PDF documents and easily share them, making the process of collaboration more efficient. With just a few clicks you can have your company’s reports, contracts, workflows, agreements, marketing plans, spreadsheets, forms, products list, price list, charts, emails or other printable documents converted in PDF format.
Its purpose is to enable users to exchange electronic documents easier, independently of the application in which they were initially created. The resulted PDF files can be viewed on any computer with a PDF viewer (reader) installed.
This PDF printer driver is compatible with 32/64-bit editions of these operating systems: Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Vista, XP and Windows Server 2012/2008/2003. It requires about 20MB of free disk space for the installation. It doesn’t need third-party tools to be installed to generate the PDF file (like Adobe Acrobat or GhostScript).
novaPDF Lite allows you to define different private profiles, each with its own printing to PDF settings. This feature is very useful if there are different users using the same computer (and each has different printing preferences) or if you are the only user but need different settings for printing documents.
This PDF creator can generate PDF files with embedded fonts. This means that your PDF files can be read and printed on any system without distributing your font separately while maintaining the original intended design. Furthermore, novaPDF can embed only the characters used in that document, so that the size of the resulting PDF will be smaller.
You can personalize your documents by setting the document information (title, subject, author, keywords). This feature is useful also if you want to publish your PDF files on the Web, as search engines will index your PDF files and use the document information to display it in the results. Furthermore, novaPDF can create PDF/A compliant PDF files, thus is ideal for long-term archiving of documents.
This PDF printer driver has a lot of features that allows you to: change the paper size (or create new custom page sizes for large format printing), change the resolution (from 72 to 2400 dpi), change page orientation (portrait, landscape), embed fonts (support for OpenType, TrueType and Type1 fonts), merge PDF files and lots more. The user interface supports localization and novaPDF is available in several different languages.
