AZ XML to PDF Converter enables you to create PDF documents from XML files, as well as TXT, HTM, HTML, MHTML, ASP and PHP files. It supports PDF security options and batch processing (up to 2000 docs at once).
The installation procedure is fast and doesn't require special attention. More importantly, the tool doesn't need Adobe Acrobat. Administrative rights may be needed at launch.
It's packed in a user-friendly interface made from a large window with a neatly organized structure, where you can add PDFs from file or directories, as well as specify the saving folder and instruct the utility to open it on task completion, exit, or shut down the computer.
AZ XML to PDF Converter is capable of overwriting existing files, skip these type of conflicts, or prompt you for action. You can modify the default page settings when it comes to the page size, margins, header and footer, enable HTML applet support and print the background, set user and owner passwords using 40-bit RC4 (for Acrobat 3.x and 4.x) or 128-bit RC4 (for Acrobat 5.0) security algorithms, as well as allow or deny user access to printing, editing, copying, extracting, or adding text notes or AcroForm fields. Settings can be remembered or restored to default.
It didn't put a strain on the overall performance of the computer in our tests, using low CPU and RAM. However, it froze during several attempts to create PDF documents, refused to cancel the task, and forced us to terminate its process to restart.
We must also take into account that the program hasn't been updated for a long while, and it likely has compatibility issues with newer Windows editions.
To sum it up, AZ XML to PDF Converter comes loaded with plenty of practical options for creating PDF docs from website pages. However, we have encountered stability issues we cannot overlook.
