Convert QuarkXPress Files to PDF

Convert InDesign Files to PDF

Displays a file open dialog to let you choose the InDesign file(s) to convert to PDF. This is the exact same menu item as also appears on the InDesign menu, and it appears twice for your convenience.

Re-Inspect all PDFs of Script

Automatically re-inspects all the PDF files used by all the PDF non-dated script lines of the current script.

List Unused Non-Dated PDF Files

Opens the unused non-dated pages report but limited to non-dated pages based on a PDF file. For the same report, but including QuarkXPress, InDesign and PDF files, select the unused templates report at the bottom of the data menu or the admin menu.

Open the Main Output File (PDF)

Opens the PDF version of the current script's main output file using the default program associated with PDF files on your workstation.

Convert Main Output File to PDF

Converts the current script's main output file to PDF, using the current script's default PDF output style (if none is currently selected, then a dialog will come up, asking you to select one). Depending if the current script's main output file is a QuarkXPress or an InDesign file, this menu item will call the corresponding menu item of either the QuarkXPress menu or the InDesign menu.
