Export to PDF

The Export to PDF dialog helps you to export a report to PDF format. It appears when you select File > Export > To PDF.

Export to PDF dialog

The following are details about options in the dialog:

Directory

Specifies the destination directory where the exported PDF file will be placed.

File Name

Specifies the name of the exported PDF file. If you do not type a name, Logi Report will use the report name as the PDF file name.

Select Report Tabs

When exporting a page report, you can specify the report tabs in the page report you want to export to the PDF file. The selected report tabs will be exported in the list order. If the report has only one report tab, it is selected by default.

Move Up button

Moves the specified report tab one step up.

Move Down button

Moves the specified report tab one step down.

No Margin

Specifies whether to remove the margins originally set when the report was designed.

TOC

Specifies whether to include a Table of Contents (TOC) in the exported PDF file.

Drilldown

Specifies whether to generate the drilldown files when exporting the report, which allow you to drill down on the summaries in grouped banded objects in the exported PDF file.

Encrypt

Specifies whether to encrypt the PDF file. Select the Setting button to configure the encrypt settings in the Encrypt dialog.

Sign

Specifies whether to add the digital sign to the PDF file. Select the Setting button to configure the sign settings in the Sign Digital ID dialog.

Accessible PDF

Specifies to generate an accessible PDF file for the report.

Compress Image

If the option is selected, the size of the images or pictures in the report will be compressed to the specified proportion of its original size.

Generate charts and barcodes using images (recommended)

If selected, charts and barcodes as well as web controls and UDOs in the report will be exported to common pictures, which will look dimmed and the file size may be relatively large. However, when Compress Image and this option are both selected, the transparency property of the charts, UDOs and barcodes will not take effect.

Generate charts and barcodes using vector graphics

If selected, charts and barcodes as well as web controls and UDOs in the report will be exported to vector graphics, which will not be anamorphic when it is zoomed out or zoomed in.

Run Linked Report

If the report is linked with other reports, you can check whether or not to generate the linked reports (not including the detail reports) in the exported PDF file. If you are only interested in the primary report, leave this option unselected. Generating linked reports at the same time, especially when the linked reports contain a large amount of data, will cause performance issue.

Clipping Area

Specifies whether to cut the content that is beyond a specific area.

  • Actual Size - The report content remains its original size. It is same as 100%.

  • Fit Width - The report content in a page is scaled to fit the width of the page within the window.
