Now an alternative to PDFwriter, because it no longer creates intermediate postscript. Thus much better than cups-pdf.

So you give it a half star just because the dev has chosen at what level of OS X he wants to support? Really poor form, my friend.

You should be ashamed of yourself for that half-star rating just because you can't move forward and leave your 5-year-old Snow Leo behind. Do yourself a favor and load up Win XP if you want retro OSs.

VipRiser is extensible virtual PDF printer driver. Its main purpose is to produce a PDF from any application that can print and trigger a workflow that may follow afterwards. Although the purpose is very similar to other solutions out there, it offers some unique features that others do not.
  • User-friendly user interface
  • Automator plugins
  • Supports AppleScript scripting
  • Can be called from other Automator workflows
  • PDFs can be sent directly to iTunes, DropBox or Kindle
  • Printed files can be accessed using RSS feed (HTTP server built-in)


What makes it different from other PDF printers/solutions

OS X built-in PDF services:
  • not all application support PDF services, namely Adobe products
  • it is not possible to 'share' PDF service


CUPS-PDF
  • driver only, it doesn't provide user-friendly user interface
  • it cannot call Automator scripts for post processing (easily)


Possible uses:
  • extract plain text from any document (print to text workflow
  • print to podcast (turn any printable document into a MP3 using text to speech)
