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 output device recognized as a printer by your system. You can change printer settings directly from the program’s main window. Use Print Conductor with:
Print Conductor works well with: laser printers, inkjet printers, multifunction printers, plotters, barcode printers, and other printing devices connected to your PC.
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.
Print Conductor works with virtual printers. Virtual printer is a simulated device that 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
Configure Document & Page Print Settings
In 9 out of 10 cases, you won’t need to change the program's default settings 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
- Page range
- Paper source (printer tray)
- Duplex or simplex mode
- Color or grayscale mode
- Page orientation
- Page autorotation
- Page scaling
Set Cover and Report Pages
Cover page templates
Cover pages separate printed hard copies of documents. You can use 10 built-in templates:
- Blank (blank sheet of paper);
- Four types of Cover (document slip sheet with file metadata: filename, folder name, folder path, file type);
- Filename with Print Conductor logo (default template);
- Filename without Print Conductor logo;
- Filename without extension;
- Folder name;
- Folder path.
Print estimation report, detailed report, and report page
Report pages provide you information on the program's work. Print Conductor produces:
- Print estimation report with an estimated volume of paper before the printing session. It shows the amount of paper that will be required for this print session, so you can forecast how much paper should be loaded into the paper source;
- Detailed report – a dialog window with a brief summary including document names and a number of printed pages. Can be saved as a separate PDF;
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 into a pre-determined sequence. Basically, collation means sorting individual sheets of printed copies in a particular way. Print Conductor can arrange your files in three ways: By pages, By documents, or By sets of documents.
Pages are arranged together – printouts will go page by page: page #1, 1, 1, page #2, 2, 2, page #3, 3, 3 of first document's copies, then the same for the second document, and so on.
Documents are arranged together – printouts will go document copy by document copy: document #1 (copies 1, 2, 3...), then document #2 (copies 1, 2, 3...), and so on.
By sets of documents
First, all files listed in the List of Documents will be printed. Then, the entire list will be printed again, and so on (depending on the number of document copies).
By default, page collation is set to By documents.
