I have entered watermark text in the print dialogue of the PDF printer. Why is it not shown in the PDF?

Watermarks are printed at a lower level or layer of PDF content. Some Windows applications, such as Internet Explorer, print a white background instead of a transparent background in the PDF document. This white background then prevents the watermark from being shown. In contrast, other programs, such as Microsoft Office, add a transparent background. The watermark is then visible.

Can I also use the PDF printer on 64-bit systems?

Yes. The PDF printer operates on both system versions, no matter whether it is a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. The installer automatically ascertains whether your operating system is a 32-bit or 64-bit system, and installs the relevant 32-bit or 64-bit printer driver.

Why can I sometimes not edit any content inside Word after a PDF to Word Conversion?

You may NOT be able to produce editable Word documents if one of the following conditions applies:

    The PDF was created by a scanner
    The PDF is a form

* A scan to PDF simply embedds an image into the PDF. We would say, it's a PDF bluff package - however, you do not what the content from the PDF, rather from the image! So the method is not PDF2Word, rather OCR2Word.

During installation I see the following error message: “Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000bc8). Unable to find a core driver package that is required by the printer driver package”

This error occurs on Microsoft Windows Vista when you have a defective driver cache file. In this case, delete the file C:\Windows\inf\INFCACHE.1 and restart the installer.

Why does 7-PDF Maker produce blue underlined tables of contents and references?

Well, the definition of a link (style) is actually always blue. This is why 7-PDF creates blue links within the PDF documents so that these are also recognisable as references.
