    Easy to install, but no indication on first use of where destination output files are going to be written - I thought initially, nothing at all had happened when I 'printed' my first output. I'd love this to work, but it simply doesn't. As for some other reviewers, I can't get PDF Writer to work on El Capitan - it writes only zero byte files, and you can't select either output file name or location. Limited response to support requests, and no indication in download source that it won't work at all in El Capitan (and maybe not even on Yosemite)

    O Byte files! Well I got as far as a successful installation however when I print using the PDFWriter, I jet get a directory with 0-byte files in it.

    Install is going well and a little bit strange that you can not change the default output directory. Then you get Sandbox Errors in OS X El Capitan, which result in empty .pdf files. In the log it says: [ERROR] error in creating pdf from input stream

    I needed a way to generate PDFs from a Windows program running in Crossover (Wine). This did the trick. Here's the fix to make the install work for El Capitan 10.11 - After installing the package go back and explore the contents of the installer package, then open up the .gz archive. Copy the PDFWriter.ppd file from the archive (Archive/Library/Printers/Lisanet/PDFwriter/) to your machine in /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources. Now go to the Printers dialog and add the printer, choosing the Lisanet driver as explained in the documentation. As others have mentioned, the PDFs you generate end up in Users/Shared/PDFwriter/<username>.

    I find the way to use PDFWriter on OSX 10.11 Juste you see that the Lisanet driver is not présent when you add printer... so you can add it manualy on the following path ! /Library/Printers/Lisanet/PDFwriter/PDFwriter.ppd It working fine now !!! thanks to me ;-)
