EscapeE has unrivalled features for PDF creation:
TIFF [Tagged Image File Format] is a useful archive format which can be viewed in EscapeE and in COLD and other proprietary archive systems. TIFF provides an exact image of the document for auditing or legal purposes. EscapeE provides a number of options for TIFF images: see below.Convert to CSV to for standard database spreadsheets
When you view a PCL document on screen you can sweep out parts of the page with the mouse and define fieldnames for each area. EscapeE displays the fields clearly in colours and you can then extract the data at all those positions into a new file. Datafields can be exported alone or in conjunction with other transforms, such as TIFF creation.
Users with legacy applications who do not want to alter the source code will find this invaluable for recovering a PCL datastream into CSV (comma separated values) with field names in the first record or plain text. CSV can be deployed in standard database applications or imported to the RedTitan Dynamic Document Formatter. Plain text is a versatile format that can be used in any data application.

Alternatively, you can simply copy the text or data fields on the page to the Windows clipboard and paste into other applications.Convert to Xerox IMG images for production printing
IMG export produces a datastream for feeding to a channel-attached Xerox centralised DJDE/Metacode printer. It means that Xerox users can print identical documents created from standard desktop word processing software such as Microsoft Word. Documents are printed to file to create a PCL file and then converted to Metacode images by EscapeE. See below for image options.Convert to IBM AFP images for production printing
As for Xerox IMG export, AFP export creates image files for printing on IBM production printers that support Advanced Function Printing. See below for image options.Convert to PNG for web publishing
PNG export creates Portable Network Graphics files for web publishing applications. PNG is rapidly gaining favour as the replacement format for GIF images in HTML documents because it eliminates concerns about copyright. See below for image options.Image options
Various options are available for TIFF, IMG, AFP and PNG image export, depending on the format:
