About the PDF Create Assistant
The Nuance® PDF Create Assistant allows you to create PDF files from a set of source files coming from a variety of applications, including existing PDF files. Each file can be converted to a separate PDF, or a group of files can be combined, in listed order, into a single PDF. Files can also be overlaid or packaged.
You can start the PDF Create Assistant from the Microsoft® Windows® Start Menu with one of the following commands. Then use the interface to perform the file conversion.
Start > Programs > Nuance PDF Converter Professional 7 > PDF Create Assistant or
Start > All Programs > Nuance PDF Converter Professional 7 > PDF Create Assistant.
List of files
You can use the Add button to build up a list of files in PDF Create Assistant. From its drop-down menu:
Select Open file to browse for files from your local computer (alternatively, you can drag-and-drop files from Windows Explorer into the list area)
Select Open from DMS to browse for files from a SharePoint server or another Document Management System.
You can remove selected files from this list with the Delete button or all the files with the Clear button.
The removed files will not be deleted from your computer, only from this list. You can change the order of files with the up and down arrows.
