Setting PDF file versions

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Align the format of the files in your application with the needs of users who rely on assistive technology. Use this setting to improve accessibility by defining what type of PDF files your application generates.

  1. In the navigation pane of Dev Studio, click Records.

  2. Expand the Data Model category, and then click Data Transform.

  3. Open the pyPDFSettings data transform.

  4. On the Definition tab, in the param.pyPDFFormat field, define the PDF version:

    • To use the general PDF version, enter PDF.
    • To use the PDFA/1-b standard for long-term file storage, enter PDFA.
    • To use the PDF/UA standard that enhances readability, enter PDFUA.
      PDF/UA is the default version.

  • Creating PDF files by using a compact style sheet

    When you create a PDF file by using the Create PDF smart shape in a case type or by using the HTMLtoPDF activity, you can use the pyCompactStylesforPDF compact style sheet instead of the style sheet that is used by the application skin. Use this style sheet to quickly generate PDF files and also correctly render certain elements that cannot be rendered when you use the application skin to generate PDF files.
