Can you also use 7-PDF to create documents with blank business paper that is available in PDF form?

This is unfortunately not possible using 7-PDF Maker, but you can do it with our free PDF printer, 7-PDF Printer.

The free PDF converter features a stationery function, which can be used to create CI-compatible invoices, for example. In addition, the free PDF printer also supports the creation of watermarks in the PDF. You can download 7-PDF Printer here.

How can I change the standard memory location (directory) to my “documents” folder?

Open the setting dialogue “Options”, alter the file path as desired with the available wild cards, such as <personal></personal>\<smarttitle></smarttitle>.pdf. The <personal></personal> wildcard automatically references your “documents” folder during PDF creation and saves the PDF there. You can also find the ‘last selected memory location’ option there and can activate/deactivate this as required.

Can I convert Corel images to PDF using 7-PDF Maker?

This is also possible by taking a short detour. Save the Corel image in an image format that 7-PDF Maker supports and then convert this to PDF using 7-PDF Maker. You can find all the file and image formats supported by 7-PDF Maker here...

However, this can also be done directly using our free PDF creator, 7-PDF Printer, via a print dialogue in CorelDraw.

Why can I not see hyperlinks from the document in the PDF created?

If you add links to the document, usually in Microsoft Word, only the plain text will be printed in the PDF created.

To prevent this, you must add an Internet or email address to the link text in the original Word document. This means, for instance, a clickable hyperlink in the PDF can be recognised by Acrobat Reader and shown with a blue underline.

Can I convert several input documents to PDF at once using 7-PDF Maker?

Yes. 7-PDF Maker no longer requires a print dialogue and does not act as a PDF printer, which is a crucial advantage over other PDF creators. This makes it possible to quickly and conveniently use the supplied Windows Explorer integration for this.

Highlight several documents directly in Windows Explorer - right-hand mouse button - 7-PDF - select Create PDF... - finished!

I get the error message “Invalid floating-point operation” when I convert from PDF to Word. What can I do?

Invalid floating-point operationThis error occurs very rarely, but, in this case, please alter the conversion mode of the PDF to Word converter from the standard setting ‘automatic conversion mode (default)’ to a user-defined mode!

It would be best to use the user-defined conversion with tabs here. After altering the conversion mode, please try to convert the PDF to Word again.

If necessary, you should alter further settings options on the ‘advanced settings’ tab if the problem occurs again. You can try to further specify the extraction options to exclude the incompatible content of the PDF document from the conversion during the PDF to Word transfer.
