     Click here to see the steps.

    The BMC Documentation portal gives you the ability to generate PDF and Microsoft Word documents of single pages, and to create PDF exports of multiple pages in a space.  

    Creating PDF and Word exports

    You can create a PDF of a page or a set of pages. (Non-English page exports are not supported.) You can also create a Word document of the current page.

    To export to PDF or Word

    1. From the Tools menu in the upper-right, select a format:
      • Export to Word to export the current page to Word format
      • Export to PDF to export the current page or a set of pages to PDF
    2. If exporting to PDF, select what template you want to use:
      • Simple to export a lightweight PDF with no cover, table of contents, or index.
        By default, the Simple template only exports the current page.
      • Standard to export a traditional PDF with a cover, table of contents, and index.
        By default, the Standard template exports the current page and all child pages.
