Printing Application Interface

When a document is converted, or "printed", with Print2Flash, Print2Flash Printing Application is launched. At first, this application shows you conversion progress. Then, it displays you the converted document for preview. And finally, you may save the converted document to disk.

To open Print2Flash Printing Application, start printing a document to the Print2Flash Printer or choose "Print2Flash Printing Application" from the "All Programs/Print2Flash 3" submenu of Windows start menu.

The Printing Application screenshot is shown below:


Toolbar

The Print2Flash Printing Application toolbar has the following buttons:

  Convert - converts any printable document to Print2Flash format. You will be  prompted for the location of the document you want to convert. After conversion the converted document is shown in the converted document area and then you can save it using various Save... buttons (see below).

Save - saves both Flash and HTML5 versions of the document altogether will all files necessary to open the document. It will create a HTML preview file and a related folder with the document (named after the file name but ending with _files). See How to Publish a Print2Flash Document on the Web? topic for more information.

Save Flash - saves only the Flash version of the document. The behavior of this button differs for various Flash output formats:

  • In "Single file" format you will be prompted for the filename and location of the document file before saving. In the Save As Type field you may choose whether you want to save only the Flash document file (Flash Document option) or the document altogether with HTML preview page (Flash Document with HTML Preview Page option). In the latter case it will create a HTML preview file and a related folder with the document (named after the file name but ending with _files);
  • In "Single file per page" format this option shows a window prompting for a folder in which page Flash files should be stored. Additionally you may set "Create HTML Preview Page" option to create a HTML file for previewing the document and a related folder with the document resources;
  • In "External viewer" format you will be prompted for the filename and location of document file(s) before saving. In the Save As Type field you may choose whether you want to save only the Flash document file (Flash Document option) or the document altogether with the viewer and HTML preview page (Flash Document with HTML Preview Page option). In the latter case it will create a HTML preview file and a related folder with the document (named after the file name but ending with _files).

Save HTML - saves only the HMTL5 version of the document. You will be  prompted for the file name and location of the HTML document file. In the Save As Type field you may choose whether you want to save only the HTML document without the viewer (HTML Document option) or altogether with the viewer and preview page (HTML Document with Preview Page option). It will create a file and a related folder with document resources (named after the file name but ending with _files).

Save All - saves all data generated at the last document conversion: Flash and/or HTML5 document, metadata file and page thumbnails. You will be shown the Save All window where you can choose a location to save the data to and other saving options.

Help - shows this help system.
