Dialogs - Options

This is the General tab of PDF2XL Enterprise's options dialog. Click on any option for an explanation on what it does.




Application Defaults

User interface language

This combo box allows the user to select the user interface language for PDF2XL Enterprise. Note that changing the user interface language will only go into effect once you restart the application (PDF2XL Enterprise will automatically suggest a restart if the user interface language is changed).
If the new language was not originally installed with the application, the user will be prompted to download the language components (or install them from the CD) using the Install Language dialog.

Default magnification when opening file

This setting controls the zoom in which the document is initially opened. The options include Original Size, which will keep the size of the document; Fit to Width, which will automatically set the document to fit PDF2XL Enterprise's window, and Set to, which will allow the user to set the default size (in percents).
Note that if the Remember zoom for each document option is set, this setting will only be used when a new document is opened which hasn't been opened before.

Show Start pane at startup

If this option is checked, the Start pane will automatically be displayed when PDF2XL Enterprise is loaded.

Show tutorial options on Start pane

If this option is checked, the Start pane will display the tutorial options.

Program Updates

Check for updates

If this option is checked, PDF2XL Enterprise will automatically check for available software updates whenever it's started. In the dropdown box you can select what to do if an update is found:

Heuristics

Find horizontal dividers

If this option is checked, PDF2XL Enterprise will use the divider finding algorithm to find and ignore horizontal dividers. The algorithm uses only characters from the list when calculating the horizontal dividers.

Find vertical dividers

If this option is checked, PDF2XL Enterprise will use the divider finding algorithm to find and ignore vertical dividers. The algorithm uses only characters from the list when calculating the vertical dividers.

Ignore more than X consecutive spaces

If this option is checked, PDF2XL Enterprise will ignore blocks of consecutive spaces (i.e. will not use them to recognize tables or convert them). The user can set the exact limit of consecutive spaces that should be ignored.

Allow dropping letters

In some cases, PDF might contain text on top of other text. If this option is checked, some of that text may be ignored. Uncheck this option if you want PDF2XL Enterprise not to ignore any of the text.

Space-to-letter ratio

This setting can be used to change the minimal distance between words which PDF2XL Enterprise will consider a space; setting it to narrower will ensure getting a space in the output even when the words are close together, while setting it to wider might combine parts of words even if they do not touch.

PDF2XL Printer

While running, set Cogniview Printer as default printer

If this option is checked, Cogniview Printer will be set as the default printer when PDF2XL Enterprise starts. When PDF2XL Enterprise is closed, the previous default printer will be restored.
