I am looking for a program that will capture documents as they are being printed and save a copy of them as a PDF or something similar. Our office computers run windows. We use a program called "Legal Billing" by Chaos Software Group. The program suits our needs quite well except it doesn't offer any good way to keep track of which bills have been sent and when. If we could capture a copy of each invoice in the form of a PDF (or something else) as it's being printed, this would solve our problem.
Does anyone know of such a program? Thank you.

That software includes the Time & Chaos daily scheduler (which I've used for years).  Seems to me that entering date/time info on it or directly on your bills...would serve to document what was done and when.


And...making file copies of every billing is a basic accounting task, while a decent Accounts Payable system has to account for those activities.


Sounds to me like you need some basic accounting knowledge moreso than a .pdf copy of documents.


What printer are you using?  Print to .pdf is a rather common feature these days, IMO.  Foxit is the program I use for such.

I think that indeed you want to solve your problem in a quite complicated way but if you really want to you can achieve this by simultaneous printing (look here:http://smallbusiness.chron.com/print-two-printers-time-43982.html) where one of selected printers will be pdf printer (e.g. bullzip, foxit etc).
