Can I build a virtual print driver with Aspose.PDF? How would you go about it?

In case I have not properly understood your requirement, please share some details.
Actually what I am trying to do is this.
Sorry for replying you so late.
We have component name Aspose.Words which provides the capability to convert word file into PDF format. It also provides the feature of mail Merging. However as per your requirement, you may first try converting the word file into PDF format using Aspose.Words and then use Aspose.Pdf to set existing ODON Template.pdf as watermark to newly generated PDF from Aspose.Words.

I know this is an old topic but I had a requirement similar to the original question posted here. Can I have a Virtual Printer that is backed by Aspose.Net, something similar to how CutePDF or PDFCreator does things. So, a user will be able to open a document, say an image and click print - this gives a print dialog and Aspose PDF is listed as a printer. The user selects Aspose PDF and it generates a PDF.
Thanks for the information, but my need was slightly different. I don’t need to use Aspose to send a document to a printer. Instead, a different application will send a document to a virtual printer and expects a PDF to be generated. Can Aspose act as that virtual printer?
