Create PDF files from any document with novaPDF

NovaPDF is a powerful commercial tool for creating PDF files.

Install the program and it equips your PC with a virtual printer driver, enabling you to create PDFs from any Windows application. Just open your target document, choose the Print option, select the novaPDF printer, and the program will convert it for you.

The program also provides its own console where you can choose a document, and convert it to PDF directly.

NovaPDF directly integrates with Microsoft Office applications, too. Open a document, click the novaPDF tab, and again you can have it converted to PDF in a couple of clicks.

However you start the conversion process, your finished document can be customised in many different ways. Bookmarks, metadata, font embedding, link detection, text optimisation, layout PDF/A and Linear PDF options are all customisable, while a smart Profile system makes it easy to group particular settings together (you might have one profile for home documents, the other for work, then change between the two as required).

It's even possible to define how your finished PDF will be opened later in a PDF viewer, covering anything from hiding menus, toolbars or other interface elements, to configuring particular transition types.

NovaPDF comes in three editions, and the baseline novaPDF Lite includes everything we've described so far.

NovaPDF Standard extends the package with support for image and text watermarks (including templates like "confidential" and "draft"), and various compression options.

The top-of-the-range novaPDF Professional further adds strong security tools, with support for PDF signatures, encrypting, password-protecting documents and applying various permissions. Email tools include the ability to automatically email a document after creating it. It's also possible to overlay one PDF over another, and export the results.

Version 9 brings these key improvements (see changelog for more):

- New: After-save actions to upload PDFs on FTP or SFTP servers
- New: Predefined after-save actions for Opening/Running/Copying or Deleting PDFs
- New: Printer Monitoring tool for viewing printing job status in realtime
- New: 128 and 256 bits strong AES encryption to protect PDFs
- New: Option to set/edit Copyright Information for PDFs
- New: View and filter printed documents history with option to export usage
- New: Add printers with different paper size, orientation, resolution, copies, scaling from Printer Manager
- New: Create shared printers and make them default via Printer Manager
- New: Set end-user permissions for new printers in Printer Manager
- New: Concurrent/floating computer-based licenses
- New: Concurrent/floating user-based licenses
- New: Fixed user-based licenses
- New: Configurable Data Entry Wizard to set information before printing
- New: Export/Import printers and configurations

Verdict:

The stack of free competition inevitably leaves novaPDF looking a little expensive, but you do get a lot for your money, and if your PDF needs are complex then we'd give it a try.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.80

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.80

• Now you can delete messages you've sent by mistake. Just tap and hold a message you sent in the last 7 minutes, tap delete, and select "Delete for everyone." The message will be deleted for you and everyone in the chat. Requires the latest version of WhatsApp.
• Live location: now you can share your location in real-time with family and friends. Open any chat, tap the + icon > location, and tap "Share Live Location" to get started. 
• Fixed an issue that was preventing some message notifications from appearing on iOS 11.
