Importing files or folders using the Add files or Add folder button

To add one or more files, click the Add files button and browse for the files you want to convert. You can also add RAR, ZIP, 7ZIP, and other types of archives; the program will convert the files within the added archive(s).

To add an entire folder with files, click the Browse for folder button. You can also specify only certain file formats by changing the *.* macro (e.g., *.doc,*.docx) next to File types to add or use a Custom filter to apply a file mask.

Adding folders and RAR, ZIP, or 7ZIP archives to the List of Files

Adding entire folders or archives (RAR, ZIP, etc.) is just as simple as adding regular folders or individual files. You can use drag-and-drop or the Add files / Add folder button to do so.

Adding files directly from Microsoft Outlook

To convert email message files to PDF or other formats, you need to add them to DocuFreezer first. You can import email files by dragging and dropping them onto the DocuFreezer main window, just like any other files. If you try adding emails directly from Outlook, they get automatically imported to the List of Files.
