You can convert files from one format to another simply by exporting them.
|1.||Open the file containing the pages that you wish to export then:|
|o||choose Export... from the 'File' menu, or |
|o||Hold down the Ctrl key and press the E key.|
|3.||Tick Do not overwrite files to add a number to the new output file name if there is an existing file of the same name already present. Deselect if you want same-named files to be overwritten, for example when re-exporting a file with changed options. See also Overwriting files.|
|4.||If the default Format shown is inappropriate, select your preferred format from the drop-down list; see also Choosing an export format.|
To make the newly selected format the default, click Save format.
|5.||A File name (with suitable extension) and folder are supplied.|
To create a different filename or extension, type in the new name (wild-cards may be used). To select a different folder to store the file, click the Browse button.
|6.||Many formats enable you to set up further options: click the options... button to display the appropriate 'Options' page of the Configuration dialog. You may see some configuration options represented on the Export dialog too, such as:|
|o||When exporting a Composite document ensure that the Treat as a single file box is ticked.|
|7.||In the case of an LOF composite file you may tick Treat as a single file to export the files as a single unit rather than as separate files, see Viewing a data control file|
|8.||For some selected formats, EscapeE can open the new file in the program that you normally use as soon as the export process is completed: tick Run the associated program after creating the file (see also Associated programs).|
|9.||If you have defined data fields on the pages, the fields can be extracted simultaneously into Comma Separated, XML or Plain text format. In this case the file is not given the extension CSV, XML, etc, but a .LOG file is created instead. Select the options for Log file export.|
|11.||Click OK to close the Export dialog.|
|o||IDF, RTF and HTML5 UberEd export formats only: if the Show fields form on the 'Options' dialog has been checked, the Fields dialog opens, see IDF export options, RTF export options.|
EscapeE outputs the new document.
Other export formats, such as Windows Metafile, are available. RedTitan also specializes in customized solutions for database publishing. Contact RedTitan for more information.
Tip: You can do a "dummy run" by choosing No output as the Format. No document is created but any messages produced by the job run are logged in the Console notebook and you may export field contents in a Log file, see Setting Log file options. This is useful for checking the validity of the input documents, number of pages in the output document etc..
