Please note folks, today's promotion is for the standard version of PriPrinter only.

Have you ever taken the time to preview a print job to make sure it looks absolutely perfect, only to find that your output doesn't match what it looked like on your computer screen? Frustrating! It wastes your time, eats your toner, and kills trees.

PriPrinter is here to make it all better.

With priPrinter, a lightweight virtual printer, previewer, and editor, you can be reassured that your print job will match your screen. priPrinter features an intuitive ribbon interface that lets you quickly discover and access useful features and functions. Using priPrinter is easy, just use your Windows applications as you normally would, then print to priPrinter!

PriPrinter offers support for printing to images, booklet and poster printing, duplex, zoom in/out, and more! Using just your mouse, you can adjust margins and gutters in priPrinter just by clicking and dragging, or remove blank spaces by cropping and cutting. You can even use priPrinter to save commonly used layouts and settings as themes, and produce forms from documents! Add an additional layer of protection to your documents with custom watermarks!

Once you get started with it, you'll agree that no other print preview application offers you as much power and flexibility as priPrinter!

Michael R. I bought v3 some time ago, use it heavily and highly recommend it.

For v3-buyers v4.x was free.
Now I'm wondering which versions for the former v3-buyers are also free.Originally I thought a v5-upgrade would not be free, but when installing lately the v5, it seemed that my v3-license was accepted too. So, is v5 free for formers v3-buyers too?

If I understand the license correctly, today's buyers will get all v5.x and v6.x standard versions for free. Is this correct?

In this offer there is a little button 'Looking for Pro'. Unfortunately it does not lead to the Pro-offer...

Btw, has printing to PDF (in the Pro-version) any advantages to other pdf-printer tools (which are also printing to a pdf-file instead to a printer)?

Aron Torti Upgrade to the next major version is free. Next upgrade could be free as well - as it was with 5.0. However we are reserving right to charge for the following upgrades. For instance upgrade to 7.0 for owner of priPrinter 5.0 could be for charge.

Yes, today's buyers will get v5.x and v6.x standard versions for free.

Pro is not about PDF only, it's also provides some text corrections, print history, scripting...
Regarding PDF, pro version provides more UI friendy and efficient way of PDF publishing. Technically export is implemented in program itself, not in driver. So printer driver can be small and fast, while program can analize print job in many ways in order to produce better PDF.
For instance watermarks can be saved to PDF using transparency. In case of printing transparency will be implemented via bitmasks and halftoning.

Thanks for the fast answer and the pro-feature-explanation.
Unfortunately it can't be bought via BDJ, can it?

Next upgrade could be free as well - as it was with 5.0.

Good news. Thanks you.
Are all v5.x-version free for v3 buyers (or do I have to check this with each update)?

Robert W I have been a long time user of FinePrint and pdfFactory (products similar to yours). I would certainly consider changing over to priPrinter Professional. I hope in the future you will consider offering your other versions on BitsDuJur.

With all due respect, the Pro version is what most people will need because of the PDF output option.
Whilst I realise that software developers do ned to recover their development costs, the Pro version is far too expensive. I would like to see it at a reduced in price for a BdeJ promotion and it is likely that a lot of serious users would take advantage.
For me personally, the standard version is of very limited use, I shall stay with PDF Factory Pro,

Aron Torti Are all v5.x-version free for v3 buyers ?
Of course, all 5.x versions, fixes, features will be free.

Right now this is standard version only, pro - maybe next time. Who knows.

Bxxxx Oxxxx This is one of the best programs I have ever had.
If you follow a topic at the web, just make print after print, and the result is one single file. The pro version is a must, as it is PDF output

Brian H Hi- this looks like a great program, but I have to agree with other Bitsers that it is pretty obvious most people would want the *Pro* version (and would have expected it to be available alongside the standard version on the day of the offer. Perhaps with all the interest expressed in the "Pro" version here on the offer page, Pelikan will reconsider and, in fact, offer both versions on the day of the actual offer.

Having said that, I have an additional product question for both the Pelikan rep and the current "priPrinter" users. Two people have mentioned what appears to be a formidable competing program, "PDF Factory Pro" How do the two programs compare, feature-wise? Are there any features that priPrinter Pro offers that PDF Factory Pro does not? Amy other reasons to choose priPrinter Pro over "PDF Factory Pro? Thanks! -Brian

Aron Torti We have few nice features in this release. Full list is on our site,
I only want to highlight these, unique features:
# Full support of Cut/Copy/Paste and Delete. It is possible to:
- select rectangular area and copy to another page or even job
- move part of page, let's say to the top of page
- remove large white spaces and reduce page height or combine pages. Sample usage is covered here: http://www.priprinter.com..._pages.htm

This works in native format without conversion into bitmaps.

# Print History is another one. It's possible to view incoming and outcoming jobs.

Aron Torti One more: Professional version can work with Standard license. All standard functionality must work fine, there will be no reminders or watermarks. Some professional features like: Print History, Scripting, page combining and content shrinking will work (at least in this version).

PDF publishing and text edition will remind (via watermarks) that professional license is required.

S B This is a major game-changer.

It's easily worth it if only for being able to preview and tweak printed output, but it does so much, much more.

I use priPrinter regularly to print from web pages: it lets me print only what I want, and at the size I want. Efficient (for both paper and reader) "2-up" side-by-side printed text becomes readable!

I just pick the text or regions I want and resize them to an easily-readable full page (usually nearly automatically).

I can get rid of annoying images, backgrounds, headings, and extraneous pages too.

Pages can be handled independently, in groups, or all at once. Making adjustments is quick and easy. Lots of power, but with intuitive defaults. It just keeps getting better and better.

Very highly recommended.

Glen Hilton VG software but the standard to Pro upgrade is simply too pricey at the regular site price.. For those taking up this good offer you may have to consider the possibility of no deals on Pro upgrades at all or wait for a Pro offer - if at all. As Aron says "Who knows"
Aron, I think many users pick up the standard version with a deal such as this, spend some time with it and realise that the extra features are indeed worth having, though at a premium price.. Hope you consider some of your customer thoughts here at a later date.

Eddie Tex Guys, am I missing something with all these complaints about this "useless" without PDF? If you already have a PDF print driver, you can still print from PriPrinter to that print driver, it's just not all wrapped into one interface.

newton pagella Glancing at the website I read that the SERVER EDITION is required for 'network printing.' The other products do not work with printers not directly connected to the PC??? Are non-IP printers made any more? Are we in a 1993 time warp???

You can print to any printer connected to your computer - locally or via network. There is no restrictions.

Server edition allows to print to priprinter from another computers. Preview will be displayed on the main computer. Let's say you are printing from laptop to desktop, preview will be shown on desktop computer. You can edit pages there and print. This is a special version, since driver works little bit differently and implements some mechanisms not required for ordinary printing.

Rich OBrien priPrinter is a brilliant but maddening piece of software.
because the user interface is very non-standard. If you don't use priPrinter often, you'll have to struggle to figure it out each time you use it.
I spent a bunch of time illustrating a picture of how the toolbar could be rearranged and improved. And I explained the reason for each change in detail but my ideas were totally ignored.
I seldom use the Standard version and can't afford the Pro version. I don't care about the Pro version's ability to create PDF files. I have three other programs that can do that. What I want is the ability to correct spelling errors and typos, change the size of text and change the font before printing.
priPrinter's impressive ability to make animated booklets with pages that turn should be moved to the priPrinter Pro version. A more affordable third version should be priced between the standard and Pro versions and this intermediate version: "priPrinter Edit" should provide the ability to correct spelling errors and typos, change the size of text and change the font before printing.

Steven Avery Hi,

Bullzip has been very good as a free PDF printer, so I can pass without that. However, the stuff like annotations and highlighting sounds nice, I do a bit of that with sticky notes (when printing a screen).

I used Priprinter for awhile, and liked it, at the moment I am using competitor fineprint, I got used to the super-simple interface. Plus I use WinSnap to choose part of a page, but of course that does not do much for large HTML or PDFs and such.

Just for the newbies, if you only use these programs to easily print out 2-page in 1 or 4-page.. or review a job and get rid of pages not needed, you find it is nice. Especially if you are using a slow inkjet.

Maybe I wlll try Pri again tonight. Although the posters make a good point about the pro. This is sort of a pro type group here.

Steven

Server Edition should be installed on computer where you want to preview or process your jobs. It should be connected to real printers - in case if you want to print.
Most likely it will be your desktop computer.
