PDF Converter for SharePoint 6.1 - Word Automation Services & Office 2013

Posted at: 11:42 on 09 October 2012 by Muhimbi


It has been almost four months since we released version 6.0 of the PDF Converter for SharePoint, a release that has generated a large amount of positive feedback, specifically in the area of cross-conversion. Naturally we have not been sitting back, we pretty much worked flat out on new features and improvements, resulting in today’s 6.1 release.

The list of new features and improvements is considerable but the main ones are as follows:

For those not familiar with the product, the PDF Converter for SharePoint is a lightweight solution that allows end-users to watermark, merge, split, secure and convert common document types - including InfoPath, AutoCAD, MSG (email) MS-Office, HTML and images - to PDF as well as other formats from within SharePoint using a friendly user interface, workflows or a web service call without the need to install any client side software or Adobe Acrobat. It integrates at a deep level with SharePoint and leverages facilities such as the Audit log, Nintex Workflow, localisation, security and tracing. It runs on WSS 3, MOSS as well as SharePoint 2010 and is available in English, German, Dutch, French, Traditional Chinese and Japanese. For detailed information check out the product page.
