An Excellent Software to Centralize Postscript to Adobe PDF File Creation

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Friday, June 27, 2014

One component of the Adobe Acrobat family products is the Distiller. It is the main engine for switching PostScript files into PDF documents. Acrobat Distiller is the essential one. Some software can create PDF files from within their program, but frequently simply acts as a frontend to Distiller, which should also be installed.

With the Distiller, I can select settings used to convert files to PDFs, security options, and font information. I can also use its window to monitor the jobs I’ve lined up for PDF conversion. Distiller lets me queue PostScript documents that I create in managing the applications and then monitor them all over the PDF conversion process.

Also with this update, few bugs were fixed, along with a problem with PDF Mark operations bigger than 128K where some documents consist of type 3 fonts did not display or print correctly correlated to the original PostScript language documents, and an issue where the addition of Watched Folders sometimes crash Distiller.


  • Can run as a standalone utility or from within other applications
  • Can create reliable and compact files


  • Minimum system requirements for PC

Acrobat Distiller is a software that revolutionizes the performance of your Adobe Acrobat. It provides you the option of making PDFs from Postscripts apps. This program was intended to revise, print, display and also create a PDF files. I like the fact that Acrobat Distiller allows you modify file formats within the Adobe reader support and Acrobat editor that permits you to do your work without downloading any other applications.

With this update, it now fixes all the error in European language versions that puts off some Postscripts documents from distilling. This update is only for European language version, not for English or Asian languages versions of Acrobat Distiller. In addition, you can also arrange your files in a more consistent format for trouble-free management of your business and improving workflow.

In my opinion, Acrobat Distiller 4.01 is an excellent update. It fixes some issues and makes Acrobat Pro more powerful. Moreover, it gives you the possibility of converting your Postscripts apps into PDF files.
