Preferences.

Click on this button to edit your general preferences for PDF reDirect Pro as follows:

  • PDF Overwrite: You can choose to receive a warning if the program will overwrite an existing PDF file.

    • Overwrite Existing File (No Warning). Creates a new PDF and overwrites any file found with the same filename.

    • Overwrite Existing File (Give Warning). Creates a new PDF only if there is no file by that name that already exists. If such a file is found, the user is asked if he or she want to write over the existing file.

    • Create New File with Sequence Number. Creates a new PDF using the next sequence number using the format you specify: For example:

      • MyDocument.pdf    <<< Original File

      • MyDocument - 0001.pdf

      • MyDocument - 0002.pdf, etc.

  • Conversion Engine. You can use the following Postscript-to-PDF conversion engines. A conversion is required to convert the output of the virtual printer (in Postscript) to a PDF file. Both formats belong to Adobe and are very similar to one another.

    • GNU Ghostscript This engine is available as a free download under the GNU General Public License, which allows free use, and free copying and redistribution under certain conditions (including, in some cases, commercial distribution). This partial, non-modified version of this engine is installed during the installation of PDF reDirect Pro solely as a service to expedite the installation. You are entitled to a copy of the source code of this engine under the terms of this license. You are also entitled to the source code that PDF reDirect uses to control GNU Ghostscript. You can download them as follows:

      • Ghostscript Home Page: [HERE]

      • Most current Ghostscript Source Code: [HERE]

      • PDF reDirect Pro source code: [HERE]

    • AFPL Ghostscript You can use that engine if you prefer. Although this engine is a free download, there are restrictions that prevent its use. Please read the license carefully. More information is available [HERE].

    • Distiller If you have Adobe's Acrobat installed on your computer, you can use Distiller to perform the conversion process.

  • Language. Use this to change the language of PDF reDirect Pro. Currently, English, Italian and French are supported. If you wish to create additional languages, you can download the Excel conversion file from our web site, in the download section. Please check with us by e-mail ( ) before creating a new language file to see if someone is already creating the same one.

  • Startup Directory allows you to select a different startup directory if you prefer. You can choose from the following options:

    • Desktop (default). This feature does not work properly on Windows NT (see the FAQ for details)

    • Last Accessed Folder automatically takes you to the last folder that you saved a file to.

    • My Documents shows the "My Documents" folder of the currently logged user. Note that this selection may cause a slight pause with Win XP SP1 as the directory is being read into memory. This selection does not work for Windows 95, 98 & ME users: simply use "Custom" and set the path to "C:\Windows\My Documents"

    • Custom allows you to specify any path you want (example: G:\Temp\PDF_Files). To view the full path selected, simply pause the mouse over the dropdown control momentarily: a box will appear which will show the complete path.

  • Version allows you to read about the History and License of PDF reDirect Pro. Click on "Check Web for Updates" to see if an update is an available for download and installation.

  • Debug. If you experience a problem, you can have PDF reDirect Pro create log files which you can then submit to EXP Systems for review. Make sure that you repeat the problem with the log turned ON before submitting a Bug Report. Once you have, click on the "Submit Bug Report" button. Normally, you should keep logging turned OFF.
