Export to PDF and Print


Steps to export database view

1. Go to the Records menu and open a view you need.
2. Find  export to PDF icon on the screen.
3. Click on it and customize the PDF document:


- Paper size (you select page size, A4 to A0):

  A4 (8.3" x 11.7")
  A3 (11.7" x 16.5")
  A2 (16.5" x 23.4")
  A1 (23.4" x 33.1")
  A0 (33.1" x 46.8")


- Orientation:

  Portrait (page orientation where the height of the display area is greater than the width)
  Landscape (page orientation where a wide view area is needed)


- Printing format:

  Table view (use this option if you need to show a database table on the whole page)
  Individual Entries (use this option if you need to show one record per page)

- Page breaks (if you need to export a grouped view):  

  Fill each page
  Break after each group



You can also export Report data to PDF. 


Steps to enable export in Table widget

 - Go to the Table menu;
 - Click on the Actions menu;
- Select option Enable Export to PDF;

- On the integrated table you will see the PDF icon.


A PDF is a printer-friendly document. In some systems, you may require Acrobate Readerâ„¢ to open the file.

The PDF file will be sent to your account email. Click on the icon once and wait. It will take some time, depending on the file size.
