Create PDF files from a Windows context menu

You can start the PDF creation process directly from a file that you right-click on your Windows Desktop or from File Explorer. The following options appear:

  • Create PDF from file

  • Query file name (or some other saving instruction)

If you select more than one source file, additional items appear:

  • Combine files as one PDF

  • Overlay files as one PDF

  • Package files as one PDF

To create PDF files from a shortcut menu:

  1. Select and right-click one or more files on your Windows Desktop, or in File Explorer.
  2. Select a shortcut menu item:
    • If you have a single source file, select Create PDF from file.

    • If you have multiple source files, select an option to create, combine, overlay or package the files.

  3. Select a profile.
  4. If necessary, modify the selected profile or create your own by selecting Edit from the shortcut menu.
  5. Check the target. The default is Query file name. This means the Save As dialog box appears after PDF creation. If you click on the target, the Destination Settings dialog box will be displayed where you can change it. The currently selected target or saving instruction is always displayed as a shortcut menu item.
