Using Watchers to batch convert file

Batch conversion can be quickly performed by using watched folders.  Default installation of PDF Impress includes one built-in Watcher with following folder structure:

Source Folder: %USERPROFILE%\Documents\PDFImpressWatcher
Save PDF to folder: %USERPROFILE%\Documents\PDFImpressWatcher\Output
Log and Journal folder:  %USERPROFILE%\Documents\PDFImpressWatcher\Log
Move source to folder: %USERPROFILE%\Documents\PDFImpressWatcher\Error

Any files copied into Source Folder will be automatically converted into a PDF document and saved to the Save PDF folder. Upon successful conversion, the original file will be deleted. If conversion fails the original file will be moved into the Move source to folder. If you like to keep the original files, you can archive them. A daily conversion log and journal is saved into the Log and Journal folder.

More Watchers can be created on demand. When you want to create a new watcher or organize current watchers, click on the Watchers icon in the PDF Impress menu.
