Add your custom CSS code to create separate PDF footer elements to brand the look and feel of your PDFs.

To break out your PDF footers to control the separation of content, add the following CSS code to Site tools > Control panel > Branding > Custom PDF CSS:

@page {
@bottom-left {
   content: "\A9 2016 Copyright Company. All rights reserved.";
   font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
   border-top: 1px solid #ccc;
   font-size: 8pt;
   color: #666666;
   width: 3in;
  }
@bottom-center{
content: counter(page);
   font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
   border-top: 1px solid #ccc;
   font-size: 8pt;
   color: #666666;
    }
@bottom-right{
   content: "more information";
   font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
   border-top: 1px solid #ccc;
   font-size: 8pt;
   color: #666666;
   }
}

Some elements of the out-of-box PDF generation cannot be merged back into the PDF if you override it, including  QR code, Time/date PDF was generated, page URL, and the Powered by MindTouch byline.

As you customize your PDF, periodically create a PDF from an article to check the output and ensure it is formatted the way you want it to look.
