Summary

User to be able to batch export PDF files using the frmLayoutPrintManager form with capabilities to choose between saving every layout in a different file, or inlcude all layouts in a single PDF file.

Solution

In version 6026 we added this feature.
Ath the printers combo box a new selection has been added "PDF Export". This text can be asigned/changed in vdres.txt file.
When the user selects this option then after pressing the Print button he will be asked for a pdf filename.

The form has also a checkbox that indicates if all layouts are going to be saved in the same file or in separate ones.
If the user chosses to save different layout pdf files then a patern like below is used for the filenames
filename_model.pdf
filename_layoutname.pdf
etc...
