I think I’ve found a bug in PDF Creator.
It appears if the below Application Window is not closed after each PDF that the next PDF job sent to PDF Creator is not processed and will wait in the PDF Creator print queue (temp folder) until the application window is closed and re-opened.
Upon the next PDF being sent to PDF Creator (after the application window is closed) PDF Creator will then process both the previous PDF waiting in the temp folder and current PDF just sent.
Have you experienced this before?
This is particularly a problem for us as we process a lot of single PDFs, especially overnight so no one is around to close the application window.
The problem can be simulated in any application (Word, CAD, Excel etc) just print a PDF and do not close the PDF Creator application window (use the auto-save setting not the prompt for PDF name). Print another PDF (after saving it to a new file name – so it doesn’t overwrite the previous file) and you will see it does not get created and is “waiting” in the temp processing folder. Close the application window and reprint the PDF (after saving it to a new file name – so it doesn’t overwrite the previous file) and you will see you will be two (2) PDFs the one from the previous print that was “missing” and the PDF for the current print job.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
