Preview files

You can preview source files to be converted in Convert Assistant in Full View. You can use the Navigation buttons to view pages and see the characteristics of a document (whether it contains text, tables or forms, or includes image-only pages and more); this helps you decide which processing mode and options to select.

To preview a file selected in the file list in Full View.

  1. Preview icon Click the Preview tool or select Preview from the View menu. The first page of a selected file will appear in the Preview panel.
  2. Use the Navigation buttons to view the other pages of an input file.
  3. Optionally, specify a page range using hyphens and commas in the Pages edit box, or use the buttons beside the edit box. See examples and a description of the buttons in the Preview topic.

When you perform a one-click conversion (such as from Windows Explorer or your desktop) without calling PDF Create Assistant, all pages are converted. Direct conversions from Power PDF (Home > Convert) do allow page ranges to be specified. Page areas can be converted (Advanced Processing > Export > Export area).
