All items within XIA Configuration Server can be written to PDF documents which can be read using Adobe Acrobat Reader, or other compatible products. The system ensures that all items are displayed in a consistent style and format, regardless of the item type. The global style can be configured in the PDF output settings and PDF color settings sections within the configuration settings by a system administrator.



There are several ways to generate a PDF document of an item.


Main Interface

Right click the selected items within the main view and click Save as PDF to display the generate documents dialog.




Item Page

When an item is being viewed, click the PDF icon to display the generate documents dialog.



Programmatically

A PDF document can also be created using the Web Services SDK. For more information see the Generating a PDF Document example within Windows PowerShell section.
