PDFMarkz Export As PDF - PDFMarkz User Guide - 1

PDFMarkz- Export PDF


1. All

Exports all pages in the document

2. From X to X

Allows you to select a continuous range of pages to export.

3. As Pages or Spreads

3A. Pages

will export each page in the document as a separate page (no spreads)

3B. Spreads

If the original document was created using Facing Pages, then Spreads will be created in the PDF. If the original file was created without Facing Pages, selecting Spreads has no effect and the PDF will not contain spreads.

4. Separate Files

If checked, each page will will export as a separate PDF. If Spreads are selected, then each spread will be a separate file.

5. Suppress Enclosing Folder

If checked will create the PDF files loose in the selected folder instead of creating an enclosing folder for each PDF job. This may come in handy if you want to create PDFs of several jobs and have them all be in the same folder instead of separate sub-folders.

6. Transparent Background

Solid White background areas are exported as transparent.

Post Export

7. Open In

Selecting the Open In Checkbox allows you to select which application will handle the exported PDF file.

8. System Default Application

This is the default application your macOS system uses to handle PDF files. On macOS systems this is typically either Apple’s Preview application or Adobe Acrobat.

9. Specific Application Path

Selecting this radio button will enable the selection area.

10. Selection area

Click in the selection area to bring up a Standard macOS Finder window allowing you to navigate to the application you wish to use to handle the exported PDF file. The application you select must be able to actually handle the PDF, otherwise it will display some form of error message. Some possible apps to select would be Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Illustrator, Affinity Designer, or Apple’s Preview application.

11. Suppress dialogs when possible

When this box is selected warning and error dialogs in applications the PDF is sent too are suppressed if possible. These dialogs would typically be things like missing fonts.
When opening files in other applications, many times they pop up alert dialogs that require you to click on something to continue. This can cause unwanted interference or halt in a workflow. The downside of suppressing these dialogs is you do not know if fonts or images may be missing.

12. Show in Finder

If this box is checked, when you perform the Export as PDF action, once it is completed, your file will be revealed in a Standard macOS Finder Window. Unless you need to interact with the file immediately after export in the macOS Finder, this box should be left unchecked. Leaving the box unchecked will also speed up the export process as a Finder Window will not need to be called and displayed.

13. Close Document

If this box is checked, your file will be closed in PDFMarkz after the PDF file has been exported. By Default this box is left unchecked and your file remains open in PDFMarkz until you manually decide to close the file.

14. Cancel Button

Clicking the Cancel button will cancel the PDF export action and close the PDF Export Pane. This will take you back to the main File View Window in PDFMarkz.

15. Export Button

Clicking the Export button will export a PDF of the currently active file using the settings you have selected in this Export PDF Panel. When you click on Export this will also bring up a Standard macOS Finder window asking you where you would like to Save your PDF file.
