UltraSNAP PROIMAGE AND VECTOR EDITOR, CLIPBOARD PROCESSOR AND SCREEN GRABBER
PDF Pages Export
New in version 4 - creating quick multi-page PDF files from screen captures such as documents or web pages. You can also create or modify the PDF pages by combining multiple elements, text or graphics.
Anytime you have captured something in Capture mode or you have a design opened in the Edit mode, you can press Add to PDF button (Add current View as page in PDF) and that view will be added as a new page in PDF.The page doesn't have to be just a screen capture. You can draw some text, shapes etc and click “Add to PDF”. Similarly you can modify the captured image by adding text, hiding masking some parts, highlighting etc…When you have all the pages created, press Save PDF to File.
Start new PDF FileStarts a new PDF file - all previous pages will be deleted.Add current View as Page in PDF - Add to PDF buttonAdds the current view in Capture or Editor mode to the PDF as a new page. To speedup work-flow, there isno confirmation feedback, just a little sound beep. The status bar will show how many pages are nowin the PDF.Manage pagesLet's you see, delete and re-arrange the pages added to the PDF.If you have multiple documents (tabs) opened in the UltraSnap - they will all share the same PDF, so you canadd pages from different tabs.Save PDF to fileSaves the pages to a PDF file. You will need to set the PDF dimensions. The image will be placed so it fitsthe page dimensions. You can (and should) specify a small margin so the image doesn't go to the edges ofthe document.
Page Orientation - the PDF can have some pages in Portrait and some in Landscape mode. You can either force it one way or have it set to Auto - which will create Landscape mode for images that have width > height andPortrait for everything else.Document Dimensions - the PDF file needs to have set dimensions for its pages. All the images will best fit the page dimension (minus margin) keeping their correct aspect ratio.
The PDF export is a image pdf file, the text will be also exported as an image - not as a searchable text.
Tip:If you are creating PDF page from scratch and a good fitting page layout is important, you can create a large “guide” rectangle in the desired page aspect ratio, for example forLetter size, it could be 600 width and 780 height.Then place all the objects within the rectangle as you would in a desktop publishing editor.
Important UPDATEA version 4.1 was released that fixes some of the issues with PDF export in some version of windows when the exported PDF would be blank
