The following our working projects reflect how can the Virtual Printer be used:
- Form Pilot – software for filling forms on PC
- VPD go – convert to PDF, EMF, BMP, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, TXT
Virtual Printer in Form Pilot – load a document from any application
Our Virtual Printer Driver is used in Form Pilot program. Form Pilot lets fill out forms on a computer. While a paper form can be scanned and opened in the Form Pilot, electronic forms have different formats (PDF, HTML, DOC, XLS, CDR, DWG, TXT…) and can be opened in their native programs. For example:

Virtual Printer in VPD Go! – convert to PDF, EMF, BMP, JPG, PNG, TIFF, TXT

Just open your document in its native program and then choose the Print command. Select VPD Go! printer from the list. Your document will be printed (i.e. converted) to all the above-mentioned formats.
