PrintConductor
PrintConductor lets you select a group of files and print them with one click.

One of the biggest drawbacks of any program’s Print dialogue box is that it can only handle one file at a time. And if you suddenly need to print a large batch of documents of different file types – say a couple of spreadsheets here, a few PDFs there and a handful of word processing documents for good measure – then you can waste a fair amount of time firing up each program in turn, opening each document independently and then selecting File > Print for each one.

What you need is a program that can do all the hard work for you: all you have to do is select your files, and it’ll send each one to the print in sequence without requiring you to fire up different programs or go crazy with Print dialogue boxes. Freebie batch print tools are thin on the ground, but PrintConductor is one such tool that’s worthy of consideration.

PrintConductor works with a fairly broad section of files: word processing documents, Excel spreadsheets, Adobe PDFs, PowerPoint, AutoCAD files, HTML and a handful of others. It does require, however, that parent applications are installed – Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader, for example, and Word/Excel/PowerPoint 97 or later. A full list of what’s supported and required is listed on the PrintConductor website.

Once installed, launch the program and choose to add specific files or scan a folder full of documents by clicking the appropriate button. PrintConductor will display a list of supported formats based on the software it’s detected on your computer – tick the boxes to select the types of documents you wish to include then click OK to select them or choose the folder to scan.

The files will then appear in a list in the main PrintConductor window – from here you can sort them according to filename or type, empty the list or remove selected documents.

Once in place, click Next, select your printer and click Run: job done. You can also save the current list for quick and easy access again at a future date.

Version 5.4  changes (history):

New ability to print Zebra ZPL files (labels, industrial barcodes, QR codes)
New ability to print plain TXT files without Microsoft Word
New ability to set page orientation for each printed document
New ability to remove files after printing

Added fast-track processing of Microsoft Word files
Improved PDF engine with better fonts rendering algorithm
Improved “Choose paper source by document page size” option

Verdict:

PrintConductor offers a fuss-free solution to the problem of batch printing

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
