PDF profiles

TopLeaf allows you to select a profile when creating a PDF. This lets you select a consistent set of options for a particular PDF usage. For example, you could set up the following two profiles:

  • A profile called online for PDFs to be placed on your web server. This profile doesn’t embed fonts (to reduce file size) and produces warnings about internal links that have no destination.

  • A print profile for PDFs that are sent to a print shop. This selects CMYK colors, embedding for all fonts and disables bookmarks and links.

See “PDF Profiles” for a description of the profile editor. Profiles are stored in the repository in a configuration file.

[Note] Note

The name of the profile used to create a PDF is stored in its metadata. If the PDF viewing application you are using is capable of displaying the metadata, look for TopLeaf-Profile in the Extended PDF Properties.
