Tree import settings
Editing a chart
Exports the selected pages as an Adobe PDF file which can be viewed by anyone using the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Free copies of the Acrobat Reader can be downloaded from the Adobe Web site at www.adobe.com
TreeDraw produces PDF V1.4 files which require Acrobat Reader V5 or later.
The following settings and options can be set.
Select the folder to save the PDF file in and enter a file name. The file will automatically be given a .pdf extension if the file type is set to "Adobe PDF files".
These entries will be embedded in the PDF file and can be viewed by using "File | Document Properties | Summary" in the Acrobat Reader.
Compression - determines the final size of the PDF file by using different methods for compressing the file.
Image quality - Photos can be JPEG compressed to reduce the PDF file size. The lower the quality setting the smaller the file will be. 100% quality still provides a significant reduction in file size. Some images (usually those which are not photos) will be poor quality when compressed, so use the "No compression" setting for these.
Encode binary - converts the text to binary instead of ASCII.
Show mode - determines how the PDF file will first be displayed when opened in Acrobat.
Fonts mode - the following settings are available.
Use TrueType Fonts - uses TrueType fonts but does not embed the font data in the PDF file.
Embed TrueType Fonts - embed data of all used fonts. Ensures that text displays correctly in the reader even if the fonts do not exist on the reader's PC but makes the PDF file large.
Embed only Symbol TrueType Fonts - embed only symbol true type fonts. (eg. WingDings, etc)
Use 14 Base Type1 Fonts - Do not use true type. When this mode is selected you can only use Arial, Courier New and Times New Roman fonts.
TTF Subsets: only used codepages - will embed all the characters which are used in the codepage (character set) you selected.
TTF Subsets: only used chars - includes only the characters which have been used and so produces the smallest files.
Full sized images - determines whether TreeDraw exports images from the TreeDraw .TDR chart file or from the original full-sized image files (if available). If this option is selected and a full-sized image file does not exist, TreeDraw will use the internal image anyway.
Create thumbnails - creates thumbnails for each page of the PDF file. Note that Acrobat V5 or later automatically creates thumbnails if none are present anyway so this option is really for backwards compatibility.
Launch Acrobat Reader - automatically opens the new PDF file in the Acrobat Reader. You must have the reader installed for this to work.
Encrypt PDF file - set this option to make the PDF file secure using the following settings.
Owner password - password required to edit the PDF file. If left blank a random password will be allocated.
User password - password required to read the PDF file. If left blank no password is required but you can still restrict printing/copying/changing below.
Use 128 bit security - 128 bit security is better but slower.
Enable printing - allows the reader to print the PDF file.
Enable copying - allows the reader to copy text from the PDF file.
Enable change - allows the reader to change the PDF file.
