Print to PDF solved--Networking printer question in Post #9

maximumzeromaximumzero I...wait, what?New Orleans, LARegistered User regular
I'm so used to OS X's ease of printing anything on screen to PDF, I was wondering if there was anything free that works well for Windows?

I googled it but there's about 50 different pieces of software, so I'm looking for a personal recommendation.

    I've used PDF Creator in the past at my company. It works well enough.

    I use PrimoPDF every day at work to change web documents into PDF format. Works pretty fast, have had zero problems with it thus far.

    We use that even for people who have the full version of Acrobat. Some older software doesn't work well with it (Acrobat).

    I use Bullzip. Just sets up as a printer. Works in Vista. Does the job.

    EDIT: As you can see, you got options. :P

    I'm using CutePDF, thanks for the reccomendations guys.

    One more question. When I share printers over a network, is it possible to get rid of the "on computer" part fo the name? Like, for example, I want to name something "Color Laser", but over the network it looks like "Color Laser on SUBLIMATIONCOMPUTER"

    It'd make things alot easier if I could just get rid of the "on computer" part.

    system preferences -> print and fax > click on your printer then "options and supplies", the Name field should be editable.

    This is still in Windows, mind you.

    Also, anyone know where I can get printer profiles? I've got a HP Color Laserjet CP1215 and the colors I see onscreen are way off what the printer prints.

    No, because that's how it differentiates the difference between a local printer and a network printer. If there is a way to get rid of the "on SERVER" part please let me know, because I've never been able to find it.
