This page applies to:MindTouch Responsive

Create a PDF from your topic, how-to, or reference articles with a single click. Save the PDF locally on your hard drive, upload it to a web server, and enable it on a web page as a digital download—or print the PDF for use as instructional or reference material. In addition, MindTouch creates a QR code on your PDF, allowing readers to navigate to the original article on your site. 

IMPORTANT!  Bitmap (.bmp) images will not render in PDFs. Also remember that PDFs can only be created from topic, how-to, and reference articles. Table of contents and previous/next function links will not appear in PDFs.

  2. Depending on your use case, either upload the PDF to a web server and enable it on a web page as a digital download or print the PDF to use as instructional or reference material.
  3. Readers can scan the QR code with any internet-enabled mobile device to navigate to your originating MindTouch page.
