I just installed and tested this on a Proe 2001 drawing and it works great. It uses ghostscript and sets itself up in your printer pick list. Nice!

Re: Free PDF writer

Works with any application, Word, Excel, etc. My experience with XP
when printing many pages at a time was bad, so I've been using PrimoPDF
with good results.

Re: Free PDF writer

For those interested-
This is slightly off topic, but nevertheless related to PDF writers and printing in general.

There is a software called "fineprint" (www.fineprint.com) that works great with many standard applications (I've printed Pro/E files too..). It adds itself as a printer.The beauty of the software is that you can 'nest' pages when printing documents, thus saving valuable paper. For example, if you have a 50 page powerpoint to be read, you could nest 4 or 8 ppt slides in a single page and print them out. Or say you have a word document that has to be reviewed by others- just put 2/4 pages 'per page' and print them out! I routinely use it check/distribute/review draft versions of documents.

Besides, it also has a PDF writer (with the same nesting feature) which means you can nest as many pages you want and turn a pdf out of that nested page. Only downside being for freeware versions, files have a line below the page that says "printed with fineprint". But its a small price to pay for a set of nice features [think of all the trees you'll be saving]:).

have a good weekend all!

pS: You need to download and install "fineprint" & "pdffactory" (each ~2.5MB)
