Use the options in this tab to activate PDF Converter and set the general attributes of the component.
|Activate||Activate the component. You can use a condition in this field.|
|Remove original documents after PDF conversion||Selecting this check box will remove the original documents from the process after
conversion takes place.
When this check box is selected:
|Concatenate the generated PDF documents||A job may consist of several files. Select this option to concatenate the converted files into one PDF file. For example if 5 JPEG files are scanned in from an MFP device, this option will generate a single PDF file for all 5 images. This option will only concatenate the PDF files that are generated through the PDF converter, input PDF files will be skipped.|
|Fail job if PDF conversion is unsuccessful||Select this check-box to reject a job when the component fails to process input files.
All the documents in the job will
be rejected if the component fails to process any input file. If this check-box is
not selected the component will skip the
failed file and continue the job.
All failed jobs are marked as rejected and are processed according to On failure job process settings.
|Paper size||Enter the default paper size for new documents. All standard paper sizes supported
by Windows are also supported by the
PDF Converter. You can use available RRTs in this field.
Note: Some applications, for example, MS Word, sometimes ignore the specified page size settings and set another page format. It is recommended to verify that the generated PDF files have the correct format.
|Width||Enter the width of the paper that you want to use for your documents, in millimeters.
This field is enabled only when
Custom is selected in the Paper size box or this box contains an RRT. The minimum
allowed value is 0.1mm.
Note: The maximum allowed value is 5000.0 mm due to the printer driver restriction. If you enter a value greater than 5000.0 mm, the generated PDF file will lose the content.
You can use RRTs in this field.
If a standard paper size is selected, this field is disabled and displays physical paper width in millimeters.
|Length||Enter the length of the paper that you want to use for your documents, in millimeters.
This field is enabled only when
Custom is selected in the Paper size box or if this box contains an RRT. The
minimum allowed value is 0.1mm.
Note: The maximum allowed value is 5000.0 mm, due to the printer driver restriction. If you enter a value greater than 5000.0 mm, the generated PDF file will lose its content.
You can use one or several available RRTs in this field.
If a standard paper size is selected, this field is disabled and displays physical paper length in millimeters.
|Resolution||Enter the resolution that the virtual printer will use for printing, in DPI. You can
enter the value manually or select
one from the drop-down list. The resolution value is important mainly for raster images.
Text appearance can also be improved
by increasing this value.
You can use available RRTs in this field.
Note: This field is important when you select the Downsample high resolution images option on Advanced tab. In this case the images with resolution higher than specified in this field will be downsampled to the specified resolution.
|Orientation||You can set the orientation of the output to Portrait or Landscape.
Note: When creating a PDF document from TIFF or JPG images, some print application (for example, MS Print Pictures, MS Paint, IrfanView) ignore orientation and paper size settings specified in the component and use their own default settings. The solution is to allow the service to interact with the desktop.
