Hi,
I was looking through the sample code (http://www.pdftron.com/pdfnet/samplecode/ConvertTest.cs) for the possibility of converting a docx to a pdf in WinRT. But I failed to find the class named "pdftron.PDF.Convert.Printer"? Is this feature not supported in WinRT?

Hi Will,

That is correct. Printing in WinRT is very different for Windows Store apps (e.g.: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh780609.aspx).
We cannot use standard printing methods. On other platforms, we use this API to get an XPS document from Office, but the required API isn't available on WinRT.
So, unfortunately, this will not be possible on WinRT.

Best Regards,
Tomas Hofmann
