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. From the Tools 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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:

  4. Select Start Export.

    Trying to download the PDF for NGT Utilities. I click on the PDF link and it takes me back to the top of this page. Did BMC support try this link before they posted it here?

      Thank you for your feedback, Robert. The PDFs link has now been fixed.

      If you need PDFs, you can create custom PDFs of any content in the space. For example, let's assume that you need a PDF of the Getting started section in this space. Go to that page (it's accessible from the link on the home page), click the gear icon in the upper right corner (Tools menu), and select Export branch to PDF

      Export branch to PDF generates a PDF of  the parent topic and all of its child topics (in this case, the entire Getting started section). To save a PDF of an individual topic, select Export to PDF.

      Hope this helps!
