  • Combine Print Jobs
    Allows multiple documents to be combined together as a single print job. This is useful for creating booklets based on web pages, etc.

    Save pages and jobs to TIFF, JPEG, BMP, text and FP formats.
  • Clipboard Support
    Any printed output can be copied to the clipboard for easy pasting into other applications.
  • Double Sided Printing Support
    Booklet making and double sided printing are supported with all documents and printers. Booklets create a professional touch to all documents and are easy to read and carry. Double sided printing cuts paper use in half and reduces travel weight.
  • Paper Scaling
    Allows large pages to be scaled to that they fit on standard paper sizes such as letter or A4.
  • Adjustable Margins
    Margin adjustment allows for increased text sizes for better readability, by using more of the printable area on the page.
  • Gutter Support
    Gutter capability provides space for binding documents.
  • Multiple FinePrinters
    Multiple FinePrinters can be created. This allows the creation of "virtual printers" that have different pre-defined settings. For example, you could have a "booklet printer" that automatically prints a booklet or a "letterhead printer" that prints on your letterhead without the FinePrint dialog box appearing.
