Upload with FTPΒΆ

With PDFCreator you can upload your files automatically to any FTP-server, by adding the following settings.

Server: Address of the FTP-server after the prefix “ftp://”.

Directory: Set a save folder. If the folder does not exist, it will be created. If you don’t set a directory, your files will be saved in the root.


You can use tokens here. For more information, please visit the Tokens section

Don’t overwrite files: This setting ensures, that you do not overwrite already existing files on your server. If the file already exists, PDFCreator adds a increasing number to the file name, until the file is unique.

User name: The user name for log-in to server.

Set password: You can save your password to skip any further interaction to upload files. Otherwise PDFCreator will ask you for your FTP-server password during the print job. To delete the saved password, just press Remove in the Set password dialog. Afterwards you must leave the Profile Settings with Save.


The passwords are encrypted before they are stored by PDFCreator. The encryption can be reverted though and is only intended to avoid plaintext passwords to be seen in the Registry.

For automatic saving, you must set all required passwords.
