Configuring files for export

One multi-page dialog provides the export configuration set-up. Some of the settings apply to most formats, see Convert pages to other formats section, but others may only be relevant to one particular format, see Export files section. For example, PDF documents may be digitally signed, encrypted and time-stamped.

You may open the Configuration dialog by pressing the 'F8' key; this displays the 'General' set-up page. Then select the format from the drop-down list; when there are format-specific options, buttons are shown so that you can display these options on subsidiary pages. Alternatively, these configuration pages may be accessed from the Export dialog.

When exporting pages automatically you can set various features such as the time interval to check for files, the input and output filenames and whether to use LPR output.

Image options such as resolution, compression, borders and the image area can be specified. There are smoothing options for colored/screen and monochrome images. There are two grades of shading patterns: one uses dots on a transparent background and the other uses opaque solid grays instead.

'Preambles' and 'PJL comments' may be exported, suppressed or removed on export to PCL, PostScript, PDF, PDF/A formats, see Preamble and PJL options. The EscapeE 'eE' iconEscapeE 'prefix' feature enables fields to be created from PJL comments and job commands, see Setting the fields file options.

You may set up a page numbering scheme for a document on export in the Configuration dialog's Layout page. For details of the 'Bates' numbering scheme, see About page numbers.

When you have set up options manually from the Configuration dialog you can save them in different ways:

Click the Save button to retain these settings after you exit the program.
Click the Save as button to save these settings to a file (*.INI).
Click Shortcut to create a Shortcut icon on your desktop which applies all the options you have set.
