EscapeE 'eE' iconEscapeE can export your original documents in many different formats:

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textFDL form

Converting a PCL job to 'Forms Description Language' means that you can open pages in RedTitan Page Designer 'pen and paper' iconPage Designer, edit them and output them for virtually any printer.

FDL export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textPostScript file

Output is generated in Adobe 'PostScript' printer language without using any Windows printer driver and is suitable for level 2 and level 3 printers.

PostScript export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textPDF file

Output is generated in Adobe 'Portable Document Format'. Pages can be viewed directly with a browser, creating documents that can be searched for text strings. Iteractive "AcroForms" may be created. For security, passwords may be specified or the files may be signed and/or encrypted.

PDF export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textPDF/A file

This is Adobe Portable Document Format for Archiving documents. Its documents can be viewed with a browser and text strings searched for, like regular PDFs. The feature that sets it apart from PDFs is that it is self-contained; any fonts used in the document are included in the file. PDF/A files may be secured with a digital signature.

PDF/A export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textHTML files

The document can be output as a file written in HyperText Mark-up Language, suitable for display by a web browser.

HTML export >

HTML files may be created as a single file that contains all the resources packaged as a Multipart/Related MIME document, extension MHT.

MHT export >

HTML files may also be output in HTML5 format suitable for reading by the RedTitan Blue 'UberEd' iconUberEd program, where they may be edited and new documents created.

HTML5 export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textHP PCL file

Using the HP PCL format for exporting a file will reprocess the file, even though it was imported as a Printer Control Language file. This is useful for consolidating files that have been heavily modified.

PCL export >

Using the Subset export format enables you to extract part of a PCL print job without reprocessing. This is useful, for example, when you have a paper wreck in the middle of a PCL print run and wish to reprint just part of the job.

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textIDF

Exports RedTitan Intelligent Document Format documents. The coding for this format is readily intelligible to English speakers, ideal for editing and creating new documents from existing documents and resources.

IDF export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textIPDS

Exports an Intelligent Printer Data Stream suitable for IBM IPDS printers. Pages may be rendered as exact images or as text/image composites for speed.
Note:  the module to export in IPDS protocol must be specially installed; contact help@redtitan.com for more information.

IPDS export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textXPS

Exports in Microsoft open architecture XML Paper Specification – a zipped file of XML pages, fonts, images in native format etc. for printing or viewing on screen.

XPS export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textAFP image

Exports an AFP datastream rendering each page as an image for printing on IBM systems that support Advanced Function Printing. Note that this does not allow you to edit the file or use the text search facility.

AFP export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textDCX/PCX images

DCX fax file format is supported for both input and output. This format is used by some fax systems – it uses the PCX format for the images. EscapeE can handle up to 1023 pages.

DCX/PCX export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textDICOM images

Exports one-file-per-page in Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine format used for medical imaging. Each DICOM file contains an image and a data-set of information related to the image. The group/element values may be extracted to set up the DICOM Element Tags that make up the data-set.

DICOM export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textEMF images

An Enhanced MetaFile object stores a vector image as a list of settings and drawing commands. It may be used to provide images for printing or viewing on-screen.

EMF export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textIMG image

IMG export produces a datastream in Variable blocked format for feeding directly to a channel-attached Xerox centralized DJDE/Metacode printer. The Xerox IMG (Barr) format is used where the printer has a Barr spooler interface attached. These formats enable documents from standard word processing software to be output as a PCL file and then converted by EscapeE for printing identically on a Metacode printer. Both formats make use of PP.JSL supplied.

IMG export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textJPEG image

JPEG images use a "lossy" compression method developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group: it is well-suited to reproduce real-world photographs. It is not recommended for graphic art, however, as JPEG compression losses result in poorer image quality: for example, straight lines typically lose their crispness.

JPEG export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textPNG image

Portable Network Graphic: a useful web-compatible image format that can be displayed in browsers and avoids the royalty issue associated with GIF format.

PNG export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textTIFF image(s)

Tagged Image File Format is principally used as an archive format for viewing in EscapeE and in COLD (Computer Output on Laser Disc) systems. It creates an exact image of a page. A single file may contain more than one image.

TIFF export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textWindows BMP

This is a bulky format typically used by painting-type programs representing MS Windows bitmap files.

BMP export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textRich text RTF

Extracts selected contents of a document to Microsoft Rich Text Format. Editable in word-processors.

RTF export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textPlain text TXT

Exports the whole document to plain text, allowing you to create documents which can be easily edited with any text editor. You may also export just the Data fields to Plain Text and paste them into any other application.

TXT export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textCSV fields

Data fields can be exported in CSV format. You may choose to export all the fields in the document or just selected fields.

CSV export >

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textXML fields

Data fields can be exported in XML. You may choose to export all the fields in the document or just selected fields. The extra files necessary to create style sheets can also be generated.

Click to expand/collapse this hidden textMacros

Macros in the document itself may be extracted and exported. The macros created can be used to overlay on selected pages using the Field mechanism – see PCL export options and Setting field actions.

A range of pages may be saved as a macro.

Click to expand/collapse hidden text'No output' note

On major print jobs, specialists sometimes find it useful to process the job prior to printing. This produces no output, but does call on Plugins etc. and gather statistics (e.g. on paper use, for accounting purposes).

See command-line option /PROCESS.
