Virtual Printer Technology

Universal Document Converter is created with the help of virtual printer technology. How does it work?

The converted document is first loaded into an editor or viewer program optimized to work with documents of this type, e.g. Adobe Acrobat for a PDF file, Microsoft Word for a DOC or RTF file, Autodesk AutoCAD for a DWG and DXF file etc.

Once the Print button is pressed, the editor program converts the document into a set of Windows GDI commands. This set is then sent to Universal Document Converter.

Thus, Universal Document Converter does not have to process syntax of various document types. It deals only with Windows GDI commands, which are few in number. This approach helps us reduce possible input data formats to one, making Universal Document Converter a truly universal and reliable tool able to convert any type of documents.
