Advanced setting PDF Printer Name determines the PDF "printer" used to export documents to PDF files. Jarte's PDF export function is implemented through the use of a separate PDF "printer" utility program. A PDF printer utility appears as a printer in your computer's configuration, but it is really a software program pretending to be a printer. Printing a document to a PDF printer utility causes the PDF utility to create a PDF file representing the document being printed, rather than creating an actual paper printout. If you do not already have a PDF printer utility installed on your computer then you may be interested in this recommended PDF program.

Jarte's Export to PDF guesses which printer is a PDF printer by looking for the letters "PDF" in the printer name.  The first printer name it finds with those letters is assumed to be the PDF printer utility to be used for exporting documents to PDF. However, this can be a problem if your PDF printer utility does not use a printer name containing the letters "PDF", or if you have more than one PDF printer utility installed.

Those issues can be resolved by changing advanced setting PDF Printer Name to specify the name of the printer you wish to designate as the printer to be used by the Export to PDF function.  For example, the following setting directs Jarte to use the printer with the name "PrimoPDF" for PDF exports:

PDF Printer Name=PrimoPDF

The default is to leave the setting blank:

PDF Printer Name=
