Setting options for FDL export
Options are set up on the 'Advanced' page of the Configuration dialogue for that format:
To set options for FDL export
In addition, when you have finished setting up the options, you may also choose to create a Shortcut icon that uses all the options you have set by clicking Shortcut... (see Shortcuts - the easy way to construct a command line) or Click the Save button to retain these settings after you close the program.
FDL files may be rendered as a graphic only or as a graphic with text. The graphic only option will produce an accurate image from the file, including an image of the text, but cannot be used for extracting text for re-formatting. Exporting the file as graphic with text retains the text features (e.g. search) and consumes less memory. Some printer's drivers, however, effectively encrypt the text so that this option produces unusable muddled text.
If you are going to edit an FDL form using Page Designer you can combine the text into flowed paragraphs with spaces in between. If your PCL file contains tagged data, for example as created by Microsoft® Word, you can import the data names into the FDL form.
