If you are using custom settings, select an Adobe PDF setting, security setting, and file type setting and specify a time out.
The Adobe PDF settings are applicable only to PS-to-PDF, EPS-to-PDF, PRN-to-PDF, Image-to-PDF with OCR on, and Native-to-PDF conversions. The time-out setting specifies the maximum time the conversion takes to complete. The default is 270 seconds. These settings are not used during Image-to-PDF and OpenOffice-to-PDF conversions.
If you are uploading a settings file, type its path and name in the box, or click Browse to find and select the file.
(Optional) Under XMP Metadata File, type the path and name of the XMP file, or click Browse to find and select the file. An XMP file can be used to include standard metadata information. (See About XMP files.)
PDF documents that PDF Generator creates in Acrobat 5.0 or later contain document metadata in XML format. Metadata includes information about the document and its contents, such as author's name, keywords, and copyright information that search utilities can use.
The document metadata contains (but is not limited to) information that also appears on the Description tab of the Document Properties dialog box in Acrobat. Changes that are made on the Description tab are reflected in the document metadata. Document metadata can be extended and modified by using third-party products.
Adobe Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) provides Adobe applications with a common XML framework that standardizes the creation, processing, and interchange of document metadata across publishing workflows. You can save and import the document metadata XML source code in XMP format, making it easy to share metadata among various documents. For more information about XMP files, see Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) and Adobe XMP Developer Center.
You can create XMP files in Acrobat.
HTML files, which you can convert by uploading an HTML file or by specifying the URL of a web page or website.
Archived files (ZIP), which can contain HTML files, image files, or both.
If the ZIP file contains more than one HTML file at the lowest level of its folder hierarchy, the ZIP file must also contain an index.htm or index.html file.
The HTML to PDF feature requires certain fonts in the system font directory. On Linux, Solaris, and AIX systems, the system font directory must contain the Courier font. On Windows systems, the system font directory must contain Times New Roman.
To upload a file from the local file system, use the Upload File option on the HTML to PDF page.
To use custom settings, select Use Custom Settings, specify the security and file type settings, and specify a time-out value. The default value is 270 seconds.
Note: If you configured the Generate PDF service to use Acrobat WebCapture, the File Type Settings that you select on this page do not affect the PDF produced. Instead, make the appropriate changes to the version of Acrobat that is installed on the server.
To use an existing settings file, select Upload Settings File and click Browse to go to the file location.
You can export PDF files to various file formats, as described in the Generate PDF Service chapter of Services Reference.
In the Specify A Timeout box, enter the time to wait before the application times out. The default value is 270 seconds.
The Conversion Time that is displayed when the file is converted may be larger than the value you specify here. The Conversion Time includes the time spent waiting for the thread or process, time taken to convert the file, and the time taken by the fallback converter (if applicable). time. The Specify a Timeout value is just the time taken to convert the file.
