PrintCapture

6.51a
10 April 2008

Printing monitor and workgroup manager.

Overview

PrintCapture continually monitors printing from any application. Once in place, any printing which uses background printing, including all Desktop Printers will cause a small extra dialog to appear which allows (or requires) the user to enter a job number for the print. This information is then added to a Print Log which can then be viewed with CaptureWorks' PrintCapture Manager.

What's new in PrintCapture

Version 6.51a:
  • Icon in dock now displays connection status
  • Tracks non-postscript printing which includes many inkjet printer previously untracked
  • Easier, self-configuring install and uninstall with no restart required
  • Ability to assign rates to different printers and let unassigned ones use default rates
  • Much better reporting
  • Less prone to "stuck jobs" in print queue

Although Print Capture is comparable to other similar products, I can no longer recommend it. Since Adobe CS3 was installed on our Macs, Print Capture did not report prints generated from CS3 applications. Apparently, it cannot determine the page count of CS3 documents and the jobs sit in the log but are never recorded by the manager. There is no visual clue to the user that this is the case. There is no error message or prompt for user input. If we didn't come across this bug while troubleshooting another problem, we would still be losing thousands of dollars per day on unrecorded prints. The developer was very unhelpful, acknowledging that they new of the problem but were unable to fix it and did not notify users of this problem. There still is no information about this bug on their website as of this writing. It is one thing to not have an immediate fix for a bug caused by new software, but to allow jobs to go unreported for months without any indication that there is a problem is inexcusable. I will no longer recommend this software to anyone and strongly recommend that anyone currently using the software carefully checks their print logs and considers switching to a different application.
