Multiple converters allow you to export to two or more file
types in one export step. These converters are actually combinations of
existing Text and/or Image converters.
To use a sample multiple converter:
in the saving dialog box
Select one of the four sample
Image PDF and TIFF,
Word and TIFF,
Word and TXT,
PDF and Word.
Your pages will be saved to both file types
using the file name you provide. The extension differentiates the files.
and specify sub-folders if you want to save the files to different folders.
All other settings are taken from the current
converter options for each file type in the multiple converter.
To create your own multiple converter:
Converters... from the Tools menu.
Choose the heading Multiple
Select an existing multiple converter
and click Create from....
Specify a name and click OK.
to receive a list of all text converters, followed by all image converters.
Checkmark the desired ones. Optionally
specify sub-folder paths for each file type.
The sample converters and those you create are dependent
converters. Suppose you make a multiple converter to save to HTML
and Wordpad. If you later change the saving options for the simple HTML
converter, these changes will also be
applied in the multiple converter.
To make an independent
multiple converter, using the same example, select the simple HTML converter
and make a new simple converter from it, naming it for instance ‘HTML
for multiple’. Similarly, make a converter ‘WordPad for multiple’. Then
make a new multiple converter from the two user-defined simple converters.
In this way, the settings for simple saving to HTML will be independent
from those in the multiple converter.
You can save pages with different formatting levels or file
options to the different file types, as defined in their simple converters.
A few saving operations cannot be done with multiple converters. These
Saving OmniPage Documents
Use a workflow
with two saving steps, or perform two separate saves.
Saving to two targets
For instance, you cannot use a multiple converter to save
a document to file and also send it in mail. Use a workflow with two saving
steps, or perform two separate saves.
Saving different page ranges
You cannot save different page ranges to different file
types, because only one set of selected pages can exist at saving time.
For the same reason, workflows cannot be used either. Perform two separate
