We now offer an easy way to create PDF files without the hassle of using a program (acrobat or ps2pdf) to create it. Instead, all you have to do is print to a specific printer, and the PDF file will automatically be created in your home directory.


  1. Open the file you want to print in Word or Excel (or whatever application is appropriate)
  2. In the Print dialog, choose \\stak\pdf-generator as the printer and click Print
  3. A file will be created in your home directory (Z: drive) called pdfprint-user-XXXXXX.pdf
    where user is your username and XXXXXX is a random grouping of characters.
  4. That's it! The PDF is ready to be used!
