Our Review:

BullZip in its latest version is a very solid program that has, over time, proven to be a top performer. The installer size file is 40.3 MB. When in the sotfware's site, scroll down and look for the community edition which is completely free. Also, during a normal installation, the installer will suggest you to download the prerequistes, so if you want to install the software in a pc with no internet connection available, they offer an offline installer too.

Key features of Bullzip PDF Printer include the ability to:

  • HTTP/HTTPS Upload support.
  • Macro <outputpath> for the full path of the output file
  • Encryption for PDF versions lower than 1.4
  • Supports 64-bit operating systems
  • Password protect your PDF files (PDFCreator also has this ability)
  • Use either 40 or 128 bit encryption on the file (PDFCreator also has this ability)
  • Add a watermark (PDFCreator has a limited ability to add watermarks)
  • Append or prepend files (PDFCreator also has this ability)
  • Choose different levels of output quality (All but CutePDF has this ability)
  • Add or change metadata (PDFCreator also had this ability).             

Changeload from version to

  • New <doccomputername> macro to get name of the originating computer in a shared printer installation.
  • Fix for SFTP upload.
