Window Descriptions : Target Settings Window : PDF Settings
 
PDF Settings
These settings apply only to the PDF output format. The settings in this category are defined as follows:
Acrobat Distiller - PDF job settings
Specifies the Acrobat Distiller PDF job settings you want ePublisher to use when generating PDF output. The Acrobat Distiller PDF job settings you specify must be configured on the computer where ePublisher generates output.
Acrobat Distiller - Use for document extensions
Specifies the document extensions you want to use when generating PDF output using Acrobat Distiller.
Copy PDFs from Target
Allows users to name the PDF target instead of generating a separate one for the help target. This is especially helpful if the user wants to specify a PDF based on PDF-XSL FO to be linked from the help system.
Generate a combined PDF per top level group
Specifies whether you want to generate a combined PDF for each top level group in Document Manager.
Generate a PDF per document
Specifies whether you want to generate a PDF for each source document included in Document Manager.
PDF job settings
Specifies the PDF job settings you want to use when generating output. When you create PDFs using Adobe FrameMaker, you can manually set job options to specify the compression for ePublisher to use when creating PDFs. Adobe FrameMaker provides predefined sets of job options that you can use to control the quality of the PDFs. This setting applies only when you generate output from Adobe FrameMaker source documents. The values for this setting are defined as follows:
 
Value
Description
Screen
Specifies the appropriate settings if you plan to post PDFS on a web site. This value is designed for low-resolution, on-screen display. Because of the low-resolution display quality, the screen setting allows content to download and display faster when users access and view PDF on web sites
eBook
Specifies the appropriate settings if users view your PDFs on desktops computers, laptop computers, and eBook reading tools.
Print
Specifies the appropriate settings if your PDFs will be printed. This value produces high-resolution and high image quality PDFs appropriate for printing. This value is similar to the pre press setting, but it produces a smaller file size and fewer image details.
Pre Press
Specifies the appropriate settings if your PDFs will be printed using a high-resolution printing method. This value produces the most detailed image quality. However, because of its high resolution, the PDFs produced using this value have the largest file sizes when compared to other PDF job settings.
PDF Target Window
Specifies how links to PDF files will be opened. The values for this setting are defined as follows:
 
Value
Description
ww_connect_pdf
Specifies the name of the window in which to open the page by typing in the name of the window. This creates a new browser window, unless one already exists with the same name. If a browser window already exists with the same name, it opens the page in that window. ww_connect_pdf is the default.
_blank
Specifies to always open the page in a new browser window and leave the current window in its current state.
_self
Specifies to open the page in the same browser window as the link tag.
_parent
Specifies to open the page in the immediate parent window of the link tag. This option is only useful for very specialized cases and is quite uncommon.
_top
Specifies to open the page in the full body of the same browser window as the link tag. Specify this value to break out of a frame all the way to the top of a window.
Save As PDF - PDF job settings
Specifies the Acrobat Distiller PDF job settings you want FrameMaker to use when generating PDF output under the direction of ePublisher. If this setting is empty, then ePublisher will not use FrameMaker’s “Save as PDF” method. The Acrobat Distiller PDF job settings you specify must be configured on the computer where ePublisher generates output.
This option is only necessary when using FrameMaker and you have embedded videos in your content that you want to be published in the PDF output.
Note: If your output generation requires page rotations, then you should not use this target setting.
Save As PDF - Use for document extensions
Specify the FrameMaker file extensions to apply the “Save As PDF” operation to.
