Printers

Use Any Type of Printer

Print Conductor supports any up-to-date printing device installed in your system whether it's local, virtual, network printer or any other other output device recognised as a printer by your system. You can change printer settings directly from the program's main window. Use Print Conductor with:

Local Printer

Print Conductor works well with: laser printers, inkjet printers, multifunction printers, plotters, barcode printers and other printing devices connected to your PC.

Network Printer

Print Conductor allows remote batch printing via network printers installed in your home or business environment. Network printers can be accessed from many computers on the office network, where multiple users can reach it.

Virtual Printer

Print Conductor works with virtual printers. Virtual printer is a simulated device which resembles a printer driver but it is not connected to a physical computer printer. Virtual printer software, such as Universal Document Converter, is often used to:

  • Convert a document to another format such as a PDF or multi-page TIFF file
  • Preview a printed document before printing it, to save ink and paper
  • Print of documents over the Internet, e.g. to allow printing from smartphones

World's smallest printer has the size of 1x2x11 inches. World's largest printer measures 12x50 metres. Print Conductor would work well with both of them.

Make Common & Advanced Print Settings

In 9 out of 10 cases you don’t need to change default settings of the program in order to print multiple files. However, you can set various options for each or all of the documents in the list: specify paper source, the number of copies, type of collation, color and duplex mode and others. These are the basic printing options you can set:

  • Number of copies
  • Pages range
  • Paper source (printer tray)
  • Duplex or simplex mode
  • Color or grayscale mode
  • Page orientation
  • Page autorotation
  • Original size or “Fit to page” mode

Cover page

Set Cover and Report Pages

Print Conductor produces three types of service pages: cover page, pre-report and final report pages. With these service pages you can separate printed copies of your documents and have relevant data on your print jobs processing.

Cover page templates

Cover pages separate printed hard copies of documents. You can set 3 different templates:

  • Standard - indicates filename of the printed document plus a frame with Print Conductor logo
  • No logo - indicates filename of the printed document plus a frame without Print Conductor logo
  • Blank page - just a blank sheet of paper separating the copies

Preliminary and Final Report

Report pages provide you information on program's work. Print Conductor produces:

  • Preliminary report page with estimated volume of paper before the printing session. It shows the estimated amount of paper required for this print session, so you can forecast how much paper should be loaded into the paper source
  • Final report page on completion of a print session. It shows how many documents were successfully printed and indicates their filetypes and calculates the overall number of documents printed since installation of the program.
Nowadays many companies waste tons of paper printing cover pages containing various data: document's filename, employee's name, time and date of printing, etc. They could avoid losses on printing and save more paper if they used Print Conductor's "Blank page" template.

Set Type of Collation

When printing several copies of documents, you may need to collate them. In printing, collation means gathering and arranging of individual sheets or other printed components into a pre-determined sequence. Basically, collate means to sorts individual sheets of printed copies in a particular way. Print Conductor can arrange your files in three ways: uncollated, by pages and by documents.

Uncollated
Documents will be divided into sheets and they will be arranged as uncollated sets of pages

By Pages
Copies of document will be gathered one by one

By Documents
All documents will be printed as they're listed and then again based on number of copies set

You can collate documents even if they are not to be bound or fastened together. For example, print media materials or handouts like those used for seminars, sales presentations, trade shows and other marketing or educational purposes are often collated in advance. Print Conductor helps you collate printouts in a particular order for easy distribution.
