Defining Default PDF Generation Settings
ePublisher provides PDF options that enable you to generate a PDF file for each source document or to generate a PDF file for each top-level group in a project. If you generate a PDF for each top-level group, ePublisher combines all the source documents within a single top-level group, and then generates a single PDF file for those documents.
You can deliver the PDF files separate from your help system, or in some output formats you can add a PDF button to your toolbar that displays the PDF files in the window. The PDF file displayed when the user clicks the PDF button depends on which PDF generation options you chose in your project. If you have selected to:
*Generate PDF files only for the top-level groups, the window displays the PDF file for the top-level group in which the currently viewed topic is located when the user clicks the PDF button.
*Generate PDF files only for each source document, the window displays the PDF file for the source document in which the currently viewed topic is located when the user clicks the PDF button.
*Generate PDF files for all source documents and for all top-level groups, the window displays the PDF file for the source document in which the currently viewed topic is located when the user clicks the PDF button.
