About the PaperPort print drivers

PaperPort provides the following image print driver in the list of printers offered by any print-capable application on your system. Use it to create a PDF file from your current document and have it placed at the current location on the PaperPort desktop. The driver is called PaperPort Image Printer.  Choose it and click Properties or Options to make settings for page size, orientation, pages per sheet, resolution, color management and whether to create a black-and-white or a color file. The resulting file is by default in the PDF Image format. Go to Options > Items in the PaperPort button drop-down list to change this default. Other choices are the PaperPort Image (.max) format or the PDF Searchable Image format.


If you make image-only PDF files and open them in PDF Viewer Plus or PDF Converter Professional, the program offers to make a searchable copy of the file.
