Saving Options (Advanced plan

Include attachments (PDF only) 

Saves attachments within the pdf file. Attachments are local files that have been inserted in the Link column

  • This option is only visible if the document(s) contain Links.
  • In the created PDF file, a symbol will be inserted at the attachments. By clicking on the symbol, the attachment will be opened and displayed.
  • Only attachments located in the same folder as the accounting file or in a subfolder are exported. For attachments in other folders, an "access denied" message is reported.
    This limitation is imposed to prevent the inadvertent export of a link to a system or confidential file located in any folder when generating the PDF.
    It is advisable, therefore, to save attached documents in a subfolder within the accounting folder.
  • Files with absolute paths are not exported.

PDF Readers

  • Only a few advanced readers like Adobe Acrobat Reader and Foxit allow viewing attached files. Other PDF readers, such as those integrated into browsers, do not support viewing attachments.

More information at the Create file PDF with digital attachments page.

Print invoices or customer statements in separate PDF documents

This feature allows several invoices or customer statements to be printed in a single operation, resulting in separate PDF files, which saves considerable time.

When printing separate files, you can customise certain data:

  • You may indicate the name of the file to be used.
  • You can use variables that take information about individual documents, such as <number> for the document number, or <name> for the default file name.
    • The full list of variables can be accessed by clicking on the {xy} symbol.
    • In the line below you will see a preview of the full file name that the programme generates.
  • When saving, the programme will ask the user for confirmation if a file with the same name already exists in the indicated folder.
  • This option is only visible if the printout consists of several documents.

Parameters for PDF file creation

Page Size

The page size of the PDF is taken from the printer preferences.

Before creating PDFs for printing or emailing, ensure that the page size in the print preferences is set to A4.

PDF/A Format

The file is converted to the PDF/A format, which is an archival standard and a more restricted subset of the PDF standard. If certain elements are included, the PDF file may not comply with the PDF/A standard.

  • The inclusion of attachments of any kind is compliant only in the PDF/A-3 standard.
  • Links to external documents are not allowed.


The program generates the PDF using user-specified fonts. If there are readability issues or if searching within the PDF is not functioning, you can disable True Type fonts from the Tools > Program Options > Advanced > True Type Fonts menu.
