Export PDF Options Dialog Box

Use this dialog box to set the options for exporting a markup to a .PDF file for later offline processing and sharing.

Title

The name of the PDF file created from the export process.

Output Options

Rasterize

Mark this checkbox to create a raster-based .PDF file instead of a vector-based .PDF file. A raster-based PDF is similar to taking a screen capture and saving it as a .PDF. This option is available for printers that don’t support transparency. If the Rasterize option is checked when publishing to a .PDF file, a raster-based .PDF is created with the DPI set to the value set in the registry. To prevent excessively large raster images from being created (when a large paper size, such as 36” x 48” is selected), the size of the raster image is limited to 4 million pixels (2000 x 2000). This maximum value is set in the registry.

Flatten Markups

Mark this checkbox to combine the markups and drawing into a single layer in the resulting .PDF. If the checkbox is cleared, the markups are written to a separate annotation layer, which enables the Newforma Web Viewer to add some data to the markup, including who created it and when.
