Creating a custom PDF

From any page in the space, use the following procedure to create a PDF of either the current page or multiple pages (a parent topic and its child topics):
  1. Go to the branch or topic for which you want to create a PDF.

  2. From the Browse menu in the upper-right, select Export to PDF:


    • Although you can export to Microsoft Word, this portal is not optimized for Word exports.
    • If you require an export in XML or HTML format, contact us.
  3. In the Template box, select the PDF style:

    • Simple to export a PDF with no cover, table of contents, or index 
      By default, the Simple template exports only 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 its child pages.
  4. In the Export Scope box, select what you want to export:

      • Only this page to export the current page
      • This page and its children to export an entire section (current page and any child topics)


    In this example, selecting This page and its children creates a PDF of all topics in the space's "Reference" section:

  5. Click Export.
