Multiple methods of creating PDF files from WordPerfect for DOS

PDF files can be created from WordPerfect for DOS by any of a variety of methods. None of the methods is ideal, but all can produce high-quality PDF output with a minimum of effort. You may want to try more than one method to see which one is best for the way you work and the kind of output you need.With each method, WPDOS sends a PostScript print file to disk, rather than to a PostScript printer. The print file is then automatically sent to a printer driver that converts the PostScript print file into a viewable PDF file.

The methods on this page use the BullZip PDF Printer (free for personal use; Windows 2000, XP, Vista, or Windows 7 only), which in turn uses the freely-available Postscript clone GPL Ghostscript. Two of these methods make use of other software that is free for personal use: DOSPrint, by A.N.D. Technologies, and  PrintFile, by Peter Lerup.

Note: If you plan to use Ghostscript for any additional purposes, you may download and install GPL Ghostscript; look for the most recent version that is available in a filename with a name like gs###w32.exe (where ### is a number like 864 or higher). If the latest version is not easy to find on the page, go instead to a different page and download gs###w32.exe from there (again, where ### is a number like 864 or higher). After downloading the installer, run it to install Ghostscript. You do not need to run Ghostscript after installing it, but you must install it. (If you want to run it in order to see what it looks like, keep in mind that you should type "quit" on the command-line in the Ghostscript window to close it.)

The methods on this page are for use with Windows 2000, XP, Vista, or Windows 7 only! Your account must be (and probably already is) an administrative account when using these methods.

See a separate page for a method that may be used with Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, as well as with more recent versions. A number of obsolete or expensive methods are also available on the same separate page. These include methods for use with old versions of Adobe Acrobat, with DOS-only systems, and other superceded methods.

Note: For soft fonts and drivers required for creating searchable Hebrew PDF files, see another page on this site.


Frequently-asked questions

Q. You say in various places on this site that I need to use PostScript Type 1 soft fonts to get good results. Do I have to buy or download Type 1 soft fonts? If so, where do I get them? And why do I need to spend money on this? Why didn't you warn me that I would need to buy fonts?
    A. No, no, NO! You do not need to buy or download Type 1 soft fonts to use these methods! Stay calm: you do not need to buy or install any fonts! The software supplied with each and every method described on this page comes already equipped with 35 soft fonts that are automatically available for use in PDF files. If you want to use additional soft fonts beyond the built-in 35, then, and only then, you will need to buy or download them, but you do not need to do so. See another page on this site for further information on additional Type 1 soft fonts.

Q. I followed only some of your instructions, and I also combined some steps from one part of your instructions with some steps from other parts. The PDF output is not as good as I think it should be. Can you help me fix it?
    A. Yes. Start over, and follow my instructions exactly.

Q. I'm really outraged! In fact, I'm furious! You must be totally incompetent! I followed your instructions exactly, and some of the fonts that I can use when I print to my HP LaserJet (for example, Albertus and Marigold) are replaced with different fonts when I create PDF files from the very same documents. Please fix this immediately. I want my money back!
   A. When you create PDF output from WPDOS, you are using a "printer" (a non-physical printer, but still a printer) that is different from your HP LaserJet, and different printers include different fonts. If you want Marigold or Albertus to appear in your PDF output, you must first install those fonts (in Type 1 font format) as printer soft fonts in WordPerfect. Instructions may be found on another page on this site. (I can't return your money because you didn't send me any, but you are welcome to make a contribution if you want to.)

Q. I tried one of your methods and created PDF files from WPDOS 6.x, and I'm puzzled. I followed your instructions exactly, but my PDF files look weird. I can't select or search text in the PDF, and when I zoom in on the PDF page, the fonts look blocky and ugly. What happened?
   A. Read the section on font management essentials immediately below.


Font management essentials

The most usable PDF files are those in which the text can be searched using the Find menu in your PDF software, and can be selected and copied to other applications using the text selection tool. These tasks can only be performed if the text in the PDF file consists of text data rather than a bitmap "picture" of the text. Text data appears in a PDF file as sharp-edged and easy-to-read; bitmap "pictures" of text appear as smudgy and often unreadable approximations of text.

WPDOS 6.x users must read this essential warning: In order to create searchable, selectable PDF files from WordPerfect, you must use only the "internal fonts" in the PostScript driver (Times, Helvetica, Courier, and others) or downloadable Type 1 printer soft fonts. If you use WPDOS 6.x, you must not use any font that has been installed as a "graphic font," even if it is a Type 1 font. When you select a font in WPDOS 6.x, look at the topmost line in the Font dialog; if it says "Type Graphic font" you should not use that font when creating a PDF file! The top line of the Font menu must say either "Type Built-in" or "Type Soft Font +". Before creating a PDF file using any of the methods on this page, use Shift-F7, select BullZip PDF Printer, and then select the font. If you do not see "Type Soft Font +" then you must install the font as a soft font in the BullZip PDF Printer Driver. Read on for further instructions.

Read this equally essential warning: WPDOS 6.x can cause much confusion by allowing you to install Type 1 soft fonts either as "graphics fonts" or as "printer fonts"; if you install a Type 1 soft font as a graphics font, any text that uses that font will appear in a PDF file as a bitmap "picture" of the text,  and cannot be searched or selected. You must install Type 1 soft fonts into WPDOS as "soft fonts" in order to create searchable, selectable text in a PDF file. (The option to install a Type 1 font as a "soft font" only appears when the current printer driver is a PostScript driver.) Do not use Type 1 fonts installed as graphic fonts for any document that you want to use as a PDF file! Do not use TrueType or Speedo fonts for any document that you want to use for a PDF file!

Now read this further essential warning: Except for the "built-in" fonts supplied with whichever method you choose (typically 35 fonts), the only additional fonts that you should use are Type 1 printer soft fonts that you must either buy or convert from your existing TrueType soft fonts. Most add-on font packs for WordPerfect used Bitstream's Speedo font format; you cannot use those in PDF files. (The only add-on font packs for WordPerfect that included Type 1 printer soft fonts were PrimeType for WordPerfect and infiniType Plus.) To install Type 1 printer soft fonts into WordPerfect for DOS 5.1 or 6.x, see this site's page on installing Type 1 soft fonts for PostScript printers.

And read these essential instructions: If you want to use Type 1 fonts with the methods on this page, you must use Shift-F7, select BullZip PDF Printer, and then install your soft fonts - even if you have already installed the same soft fonts in another printer driver! Do not waste your time by complaining to me that this procedure is needlessly complicated! Instead, waste your time by finding the original WordPerfect programmers and complaining to them. (If you really know what you are doing, you can avoid this complication by using another copy of the WPDOS BullZip PDF Printer driver for actual printing, but you will need to know what you are doing, and, for printing on paper, you will need to print either to a real PostScript printer or use of this site's methods of printing to any Windows printer.)


How to use the BullZip PDF Printer as a default or frequent printer (no macros required)

This simple method lets you create PDF files as easily as you print, but you will be required to give a name to your PDF files as they are being created, or you will be obliged to rename them manually after they have been saved to disk with an arbitrary name.

(1) Download and install the BullZip PDF Printer (click this link to download the installer; if the downloaded file is a ZIP archive, you will need to extract the installer from it and then run the installer program). If the installer presents an option to "Download and Install Ghostscript Lite," you must accept that option! (This option will only be displayed if no recent version of Ghostscript is already present on your system.)

Visit the BullZip PDF Printer web site for further information on this elegantly-designed program, and make a donation via this link to encourage future development. If you wish, you may go to the Windows Start menu, then to the Programs list, Bullzip, PDF Printer, and run Options to set options for the BullZip PDF Printer, but may leave all the default settings unchanged.

(2) Test the BullZip PDF Printer by creating a PDF file from a Windows application. For example, use your browser's print menu to "print" to the BullZip PDF Printer, and make sure that a PDF file is created correctly. If no PDF file is created, then carefully repeat the preceding steps until you are certain that everything works.

(3) Download the DOSPrint utility (free for personal use) from A.N.D. Technologies. Do not confuse this program with programs with similar names on other web sites! Only download the one from A.N.D. Technologies! Create a convenient folder in which to store the programs in the downloaded ZIP file; extract the programs from the ZIP file and place them in this folder. The program you will use will be the one named DOSPrintUI.exe (not DOSPrint.exe). Create a shortcut to this program (Help! What's a shortcut?) and add the shortcut to the Windows startup group so that it will start automatically with Windows.

Restart your computer in order to make certain that DOSPrintUI.exe actually starts with Windows. After it starts, you will see a small red-and-green diamond-shaped icon in the taskbar tray, typically at the lower right of your screen. Right-click on this icon and choose Configure. A menu listing nine LPT ports will appear. Click on LPT9; select Bullzip PDF Printer from the menu that appears. Click OK.

(4) Open WPDOS, use Shift-F1, Location of Files, and very carefully write down the names of the directories for Keyboard/Macro Files (or Macros/Keyboards/Button Bars) and for Printer Files. If no directory is listed for either of those entries, then write down the name of your WPDOS directory itself (typically C:\WP51 or C:\COREL\WP61 or something similar). This step is absolutely essential. Don't be clueless! Don't simply copy one of the directory names that I mentioned a few lines above in the hope that it might work: you must know the correct directory on your system!

(5) If you use WPDOS 5.1, then download the PDFBZDP5.ZIP archive from this site; if you use WPDOS 6.x, download the PDFBZDP6.ZIP archive from this site.

(6) If you use WPDOS 5.1, then copy the WP51BULZ.ALL file from the PDFBZDP5.ZIP archive to your WPDOS Printer Files directory, the name of which you wrote down in step (4). (Ignore the other files in the archive.) If you use WPDOS 6.x, then copy the WP60BZIP.ALL file from the PDFBZDP6.ZIP to your WPDOS Printer Files directory, the name of which you wrote down in step (4). (Ignore the other files in the archive.)

(7) In WPDOS, use Shift-F7, Select, Additional Printers (or Add Printers) and select BullZip PDF Printer. Choose the option to edit the printer driver; in WPDOS 5.1, set the Port to Other, then enter LPT9; in WPDOS 6.x, set the Port to Filename, then type LPT9.

(8) Print a document from WPDOS. The BullZip PDF Printer dialog will open and prompt you to enter a filename for the newly-created PDF; you will be asked whether to open the PDF file after it is created.

How to control the filenames of the PDF output files and whether or not to view the output: By default, the BullZip PDF Printer dialog will prompt you for a filename each time you print from WPDOS. You can change this behavior by going to the Windows Start Menu, then BullZip, then PDF Printer, then Options. In the General tab, under Output, the File Name field will contain a string that looks like this:

<desktop>\<smarttitle>.pdf

You can force the output files to have a filename based on the date and time; replace <smarttitle> in the string above with <date>-<time> so that the string looks like this:

<desktop>\<date>-<time>.pdf

You may also replace <desktop> with the name of an actual directory; or click the "..." button to browse to a directory.

On the same tab, under Show Document, choose the behavior that you prefer.

Then, on the Dialogs tab, change the options so that the Save As or Settings dialogs will or will not appear, as you prefer.


How to create PDF files with the BullZip PDF Printer: DOSPrint method (Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and Windows 7)

Note: This method is one of the few methods that works with Windows Vista, and also works with any other recent version of Windows.

Very important note: Before you begin this method, go to this site's list of Windows printing troubleshooting methods, and adjust the spool settings for your Windows printer as described in step (1b) on that list. If you neglect to perform that step, you may need to exit WPDOS before your PDF documents will be created.

(1) Download and install the BullZip PDF Printer (click this link to download the installer; if the downloaded file is a ZIP archive, you will need to extract the installer from it and then run the installer program). If the installer presents an option to "Download and Install Ghostscript Lite," you must accept that option! (This option will only be displayed if no recent version of Ghostscript is already present on your system.)

(4) Open WPDOS, use Shift-F1, Location of Files, and very carefully write down the names of the directories for Keyboard/Macro Files (or Macros/Keyboards/Button Bars) and for Printer Files. If no directory is listed for either of those entries, then write down the name of your WPDOS directory itself (typically C:\WP51 or C:\COREL\WP61 or something similar). This step is absolutely essential; make sure you write down the names correctly! The macro will not work if you don't use the correct directories. Don't be clueless! Don't simply copy one of the directory names that I mentioned a few lines above in the hope that it might work: you must know the correct directory on your system!

(5) If you use WPDOS 5.1, then download the PDFBZDP5.ZIP archive from this site; if you use WPDOS 6.x, download the PDFBZDP6.ZIP archive from this site. (Note: Updated 20 June 2010 to warn correctly when document needs to be generated and to prevent errors with filenames with tildes; WPDOS 6.x version updated 10 June 2010 to install printer driver correctly.)

(6) Copy the PDFBZDP.WPM macro from the archive to your WPDOS macro directory, the name of which you wrote down in step (4). Make absolutely certain that you copied the macro file to the correct directory! You may rename the macro to have any name you like, but you must copy it into your macro directory.

(7) If you use WPDOS 5.1, then copy the WP51BULZ.ALL file to your WPDOS Printer Files directory, the name of which you wrote down in step (4). If you use WPDOS 6.x, then copy the WP60BZIP.ALL file to your WPDOS Printer Files directory, the name of which you wrote down in step (4).

(8) Run WPDOS and open an existing document. Press Alt-F10 and enter PDFBZDP to run the macro. The first time the macro runs, it will install the correct printer driver if it needs to be installed. After a few seconds, the BullZip PDF printer should offer to open the PDF file it has created from your document. (Note that the dialog box that offers to open the PDF file may be hidden behind your WPDOS window.)

(9) Optional: Open the macro in the WordPerfect macro editor (choose Ctrl-F10, enter PDFBZDP or whatever name you may have assigned to the macro, and choose Edit). Study the user variables that can be changed in the macro, and make any changes you like.

Warning: Under WPDOS 5.1, if you create a PDF file from a document that has a tilde in its filename (as in FILENA~1.EXT), the filename of the resulting PDF file, by default, will omit the tilde and all characters that follow it (resulting in, for example, FILENA.PDF). Under WPDOS 6.x, the full name will be used for the resulting PDF file (as in FILENA~1.EXT.PDF).


How to create PDF files with the BullZip PDF Printer: macro and shared printer method (Windows 2000, XP, and Windows 7 only)

Very important note: Before you begin this method, go to this site's list of Windows printing troubleshooting methods, and adjust the spool settings for your Windows printer as described in step (1b) on that list. If you neglect to perform that step, you may need to exit WPDOS before your PDF documents will be created.

Warning: For reasons that I do not understand, this method will fail on some Windows systems, apparently because of a problem in Windows' networking. If this occurs, the PDF-creating macro will warn you that the macro cannot be used on your system. I do not know of any way to fix this problem. If it occurs, please use another method instead.

Acknowledgments: These macros are based on a suggestion made by Malcolm Wheatley, and depend very heavily on code written by Robert Holmgren and Niek Campagne.

(1) Download and install the BullZip PDF Printer (click this link to download the installer; if the downloaded file is a ZIP archive, you will need to extract the installer from it and then run the installer program). If the installer presents an option to "Download and Install Ghostscript Lite," you must accept that option! (This option will only be displayed if no version of Ghostscript is already present on your system.)

If you wish, you may go to the Windows Start menu, then to the Programs list, Bullzip, PDF Printer, and run Options to set options for the BullZip PDF Printer, but may leave all the default settings unchanged.

(2) Test the BullZip PDF Printer by creating a PDF file from a Windows application. For example, use your browser's print menu to "print" to the BullZip PDF Printer, and make sure that a PDF file is created correctly. If no PDF file is created, then carefully repeat the preceding steps until you are certain that everything works.

(3) Use Start/Control Panel/Printers and Faxes (or Start/Settings/Printers and Faxes, or Start/Settings/Printers) and right-click on the BullZip PDF Printer. Select Sharing from the pop-up menu. Select "Share this printer," and accept the sharename suggested in the dialog box (probably "BullZipP", but the exact name does not matter). Click OK and exit the Sharing tab and the list of printers (if it is still visible).

(4) Open WPDOS, use Shift-F1, Location of Files, and very carefully write down the names of the directories for Keyboard/Macro Files (or Macros/Keyboards/Button Bars) and for Printer Files. If no directory is listed for either of those entries, then write down the name of your WPDOS directory itself (typically C:\WP51 or C:\COREL\WP61 or something similar). This step is absolutely essential; make sure you write down the names correctly! The macro will not work if you don't use the right directories.

(5) If you use WPDOS 5.1, then download the PDFBZ5.ZIP archive from this site; if you use WPDOS 6.x, download the PDFBZ6.ZIP archive from this site. (Note: WPDOS 5.1 version updated 20 June 2010 to warn correctly when document needs to be generated, and to prevent errors with filenames with tildes. WPDOS 6.x version updated 19 December 2011 to correct bad error-trapping code.)

(6) Copy the PDFBZ.WPM macro from the archive to your WPDOS macro directory, the name of which you wrote down in step (4). Make absolutely certain that you copied the macro file to the correct directory! You may rename the macro to have any name you like, but you must copy it into your macro directory.

(7) If you use WPDOS 5.1, then copy the WP51BULZ.ALL file to your WPDOS Printer Files directory, the name of which you wrote down in step (4). If you use WPDOS 6.x, then copy the WP60BZIP.ALL file to your WPDOS Printer Files directory, the name of which you wrote down in step (4).

(8) Run WPDOS and open an existing document. Press Alt-F10 and enter PDFBZ to run the macro. After a few seconds, the BullZip PDF printer should offer to open the PDF file it has created from your document.

(9) Optional: Open the macro in the WordPerfect macro editor (choose Ctrl-F10, enter PDFBZ or whatever name you have assigned to the macro, and choose Edit). Study the user variables that can be changed in the macro, and make any changes you like.

The first time the macro runs, it will install the correct printer driver and create a batch file that it uses for printing. Under WPDOS 5.1, this batch file (named PDFBZ5.BAT) will be created in the same directory as the document that you are "printing" to PDF format (and the macro will create another batch file when you "print" a document in a different directory). Under WPDOS 6.x, this batch file (named PDFBZTMP.BAT) will be created in the same folder as your WP{WPC}.SET file, which is almost always your WP program directory. You may delete this batch file at any time, but the macro runs more quickly if it does not need to re-create the batch file. Also, when the macro creates the batch file, another window in WPDOS must be empty; but this is not required after the batch file has been created.

Warning: Under WPDOS 5.1, if you create a PDF file from a document that has a tilde in its filename (as in FILENA~1.EXT), the filename of the resulting PDF file, by default, will omit the tilde and all characters that follow it (resulting in, for example, FILENA.PDF). Under WPDOS 6.x, the full name will be used for the resulting PDF file (as in FILENA~1.EXT.PDF).


How to create PDF files with the BullZip PDF Printer: Net Use method (Windows 2000 or XP only)

Very important note: Before you begin this method, go to this site's list of Windows printing troubleshooting methods, and adjust the spool settings for your Windows printer as described in step (1b) on that list. If you neglect to perform that step, you may need to exit WPDOS before your PDF documents will be created.

Note: These instructions and the associated files were revised on 17 November 2007 to match recent versions of BullZIP PDF Printer.

(1) Download and install the BullZip PDF Printer (click this link to download the installer; if the downloaded file is a ZIP archive, you will need to extract the installer from it and then run the installer program). If the installer presents an option to "Download and Install Ghostscript Lite," you must accept that option! (This option will only be displayed if no version of Ghostscript is already present on your system.)

Visit the BullZip PDF Printer web site for further information on this elegantly-designed program, and make a donation via this link to encourage future development. If you wish, you may go to the Windows Start menu, then to the Programs list, Bullzip, PDF Printer, and run Options to set options for the BullZip PDF Printer, but may leave all the default settings unchanged.

(2) Test the BullZip PDF Printer by creating a PDF file from a Windows application. For example, use your browser's print menu to "print" to the BullZip PDF Printer, and make sure that a PDF file is created correctly. If no PDF file is created, then carefully repeat the preceding steps until you are certain that everything works.

(3) Study the method described elsewhere on this site (the Windows 2000/XP Net Use method) for printing from WPDOS to a USB printer; following the procedures described there, turn on Sharing for your BullZip PDF Printer, and assign the sharename "BullZipP" (without quotation marks!); this will probably be the sharename that Windows suggests. Then continue to use the procedures described on the linked page to enter a command that takes the general form:

net use lpt3 \\yourcomputername\BullZipP /persistent:yes

and then continue to follow the procedures described in the same section of the file to create a batch file that will run this command whenever your computer starts up. You must create the batch file and add it (or a link to it) to your Startup group in the Start Menu, or this method will not work after you reboot. If Windows gives you an error message when you enter the command, read the notes on the linked page. If the Net Use command continues to cause problems, try the DOSPrint method described above.

(4) Run WordPerfect for DOS, press Shift-F7/Select/Add Printer (in 5.1, Additional Printers), and select a PostScript printer. You may use one of the special Ghostscript drivers available from this site, or you may use almost any standard PostScript driver that shipped with WPDOS (a safe choice is the Apple LaserWriter IINTX); for best results, do not use an HP or Lexmark PostScript driver. If you do not see any of the original WordPerfect PostScript drivers on the list of additional printers in your copy of WPDOS, you can install the drivers from the original WordPerfect installation disks, or download drivers from Corel's page for WPDOS 5.1 printer drivers or its page for WPDOS 6.x printer drivers. While configuring the printer driver, the following three steps are absolutely essential:

(5a) If you use WPDOS 5.1, download this Pdfwrt5.zip file; extract the PDFWRITE.WPM macro (written by Niek Campagne; revised November 2007 and June 2010) and add it to your WordPerfect 5.1 macro directory. Use the PDFWRITE macro to create a PDF file; the macro will ask whether you want to view the resulting PDF file (you can edit the macro file so that it defaults instead to viewing without asking); a PDF file can only be created from a named WP document. The resulting PDF file will have the same name as the WP document, but with a .PDF extension. (Note that the macro assumes that Windows and BullZip are in their default locations; if they are not, you will need to edit the macro to match their actual locations.)

Warning: Under WPDOS 5.1, if you create a PDF file from a document that has a tilde in its filename (as in FILENA~1.EXT), the filename of the resulting PDF file, by default, will omit the tilde and all characters that follow it (resulting in, for example, FILENA.PDF).

(5b) If you use WPDOS 6.x, download this Pdfwrt6.zip file (revised November 2007); extract the PDFWRITE.WPM macro and add it to your WordPerfect 6.x macro directory. Use the PDFWRITE macro to create a PDF file from the current document. If the document already has a name, the resulting PDF file will have the same name as the WP document, but with a .PDF extension; if the document has no name, the resulting PDF file will be named Unnamed.pdf and will be created in the Documents directory specified in the Shift-F1 setup menu; if no directory is specified there, the Unnamed.pdf file will be saved in your WP directory (actually the directory that contains your .SET file, which is typically the WP directory).

Important note on the WPDOS 6.x macro: If you want BullZip PDF Printer to prompt you for a name and location for the output PDF file, then open the PDFWRITE.WPM macro for editing (Ctrl-F10, enter PDFWRITE, and choose Edit), find the line near the top that reads NamePrompt=0 and change 0 to 1.
