Miraplacid Publisher

Platform: Windows 2008/Windows 7/Windows 8.x/Windows 10/Windows 11. 32/64 bit platforms supported

With Miraplacid Publisher 2022 software you can convert any document to a set of images. Anyone can open your document across a broad range of hardware and software, and it will look exactly as you intended - with layout, fonts, and images intact. No one can modify or copy and paste your texts.

After installation on your PC, Miraplacid Publisher appears as a new virtual printer in your system. All the documents you print to this printer will be opened in a preview dialog. You may scale the image, adjust hue, saturation and value, get rid of unused white borders, and do some other image processing. Then you can save resulting images to files, upload to FTP or HTTP server, email as attachments, or print them to a real printer.

When sending images to a printer, reduce saturation to save color cartridge or increase value to save black ink. Use borders detector in manual mode to set printing area when you need to print only the document part you need.

Turn "Auto Send" on if you want Miraplacid Publisher to send images automatically to chosen destinations without waiting for your input and even without User Interface.

Filenames and paths of the resulting files can be constructed using special tags:

{{TERMINAL}}, {{DOCNAME}}, {{EXT}}, {{USER}}, {{MACHINE}}, {{SYSFOLDER}}, {{PAGE}}, {{IDENTITY}}, {{JOB}}, {{DATE}} or {{TIME}}.

They will be replaced with appropriate values.

With external script, program or custom User Interface, you may edit current print job before it will be saved.

Publisher works as an external "Save as" feature for printer-ready software systems which allows to send document snapshot to various destinations.

Miraplacid Publisher is integration-ready software. All the settings can be easily managed from your software or script.

Miraplacid Publisher can be uninstalled anytime.

PDF comments

There are two ways to create PDF file from a document - text-based and image-based. The difference is in text representation. You can save text and font settings or you can convert text to a raster image and save the Image. Image-based PDF is usually produce slightly larger file, but it is guaranteed to look identically on every computer. Miraplacid Publisher and Miraplacid Screen Capture work with snapshot image copies of documents rather than with text documents itself. That is why Miraplacid products produce image-based PDF files rather than text-based. If you have concerns about PDF file size, please use appropriate software from Adobe or third party vendors. We recommend you to choose software able to convert your document format directly to text-based PDF file for better results.
PDF files generated by Miraplacid Publisher are compatible with any version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
