Create AEM Mobile articles from PDF files by either uploading PDF files directly or by exporting articles to a project from Acrobat.

There are two methods for using PDF files as AEM Mobile articles.

  • Upload PDF files directly – In the On-Demand Portal, you can upload PDF files instead of .article files.
  • Export article files from Acrobat – After you install the AEM Mobile PDF Export add-on in Adobe Acrobat, you can upload PDF-based articles to the project you specify.

Both methods include the same options for displaying PDF articles. You can determine whether the PDF snaps to page or is smooth scrolling and whether paginated PDF articles are navigated horizontally or vertically.

PDF articles support links between pages and external hyperlinks. Other interactivity features such as videos are not supported. The PDF articles render optimally if defined in RGB color space and do not contain any hidden layers.

A PDF file cannot be larger than 2 GB or have more than 1,500 pages.

 

 

 

Notă:

The most recent update to Acrobat DC (20050) can result in a crash when using the PDF Export add-on. To resolve this issue, download and install the new version of the PDF Export add-on.

Uploading PDF files

When uploading the contents of an article in the On-Demand Portal, you can upload either .article files or .pdf files. When you upload a PDF file, you can specify options to determine how the PDF article is displayed.

Fit One Full Page to Screen – If you select this option, the PDF file fits to the screen either horizontally or vertically, with letterboxing or pillarboxing added as needed. The user can then swipe to snap to the next or previous page.

If this option is not selected, the PDF file fills the width of the display area. The user can then swipe to scroll smoothly through the article. A gray separator line indicates page breaks.

Enable Horizontal Swiping within PDF – If you select this option, the user swipes horizontally rather than vertically to navigate to different pages. This option is available only if the "Fit One Full Page to Screen" option is selected.

Uploading a PDF article

Notă:

When you edit an article after uploading a PDF file, the PDF article options are no longer available for editing. If you want to change a setting, re-upload the PDF file.

Use AEM Mobile PDF Export for Acrobat add-on

After you install the Acrobat add-on, you can upload PDF files as AEM Mobile articles to any project that you have access to.

 

Convert a single PDF file

  1. Install the AEM Mobile PDF Export for Acrobat add-on, and launch Acrobat DC.

  2. In the On-Demand Portal, add the user account that you use to sign in to Acrobat DC—usually your Creative Cloud account—to the project in which you want the PDF-based articles to be added. Make sure that the user account has content authoring permissions.

  3. Open the PDF document you want to convert.

  4. In Acrobat, click Tools in the menu bar, and then click Convert to AEM Mobile.

  5. In the toolbar, click Convert to AEM Mobile to convert the open document.

  6. Choose the target project and click OK. 

    If the intended target project does not appear in the list, make sure that you are signed in to Acrobat and that the account you used to sign in is added as a user with the project.

  7. Specify the article properties (see Managing articles in AEM Mobile).

    The following options are available for PDF articles:

    Fit One Full Page to Screen – If you select this option, the PDF article is paginated. If this option is not selected, the PDF article is smooth scrolling with gray separators between pages.

    Horizontal Swiping Only – If you select this option, the user swipes horizontally rather than vertically to navigate to different pages.  

  8. Click Upload to export the PDF file as an article in the target project.

  9. In the On-Demand Portal, add the new article to a collection and use preflight to view the article.

Editing and replacing PDF articles

If you edit and upload a PDF that has already been uploaded, the metadata properties from the On-Demand Services will populate the properties dialog box in Acrobat. You can click Show Audit History to view the history of PDF article files that are overwritten.

Use bulk upload

When you use Bulk Conversion, each PDF article you specify will be converted as an article.

Bulk conversion uses the prefix of the PDF filename to create the Article Name and Article Title. For example, if the PDF filename is "Services_Draft.pdf, the Article Name value will be "Services_Draft" and the Article Title will be "Services_Draft." If your PDF filename includes characters such as spaces that will be illegal when converted to the Article Name, an error will result. Rename PDF files as necessary.

  1. In Acrobat, click Tools > Convert to AEM Mobile to display the add-on toolbar.

  2. Click Bulk Conversion, and add the PDF files you want to upload. Make sure that the PDF filenames include no spaces or other characters that cannot be used in the Article Name. Rename PDF files as necessary.

  3. In the On-Demand Portal, add the new article to a collection and use preflight to view the article.
