Printing with the Universal Printer

When selecting this printer, the document to print is automatically converted into a PDF file. This PDF file is automatically pushed to the local PDF Reader of the user's workstation.
Each print job is opened as soon as it is ready on the user's local disk, without waiting for the previous Acrobat preview to be closed. The printing process starts only once the PDF is fully created on the client' side, which guarantees the print job starting without delay.
