I need a program to intercept print jobs from any printer driver on my system (not a single custom one) and store the contents of the print job as a .pdf, .png, or most likey .bmp, do you have a software to do this job?
The company I work for currently uses a black box shipping system. Each morning our shipping manager prints out shipping tickets for his drivers. I would like to save a copy of each ticket printed as a PDF. The action of saving to a PDF should be done behind the scenes.
Note: The PDF copy would be in addition to the hard copy, however, I would like to generate the PDF copy when the hard copy is printed (or directly after if I can use the saved print job).
End Result: The manager prints a hard copy and a PDF gets saved to an archive folder without any interaction from the manager.
