Export case to PDF

With Casedo you can export your casefile into pdf. You can choose to export them to include either all bookmarks, or for double-sided printing, or both. Doing this is as simple as switching on a toggle switch.

Export for double-sided printing

1. From the ‘File’ menu find ‘Export Case to PDF’.

Or from the ‘Desk Space’ find the ‘Export case to PDF’ button

2. Switch the toggle switch on for ‘Export for double sided printing’. You can choose to only export for double sided printing, or to also include all bookmarks. In this example we will export a PDF to include double-sided printing.

3. Now simply click on ‘Export’ and save your pdf

What does ‘Export for double-sided printing’ mean in practise?

Assuming that a printer is capable of printing on both sides of a sheet of paper. Exporting for double-sided printing means that the next document in the casefile to printed is always begun on a new piece of paper. The end of one document and the beginning of the next will never be printed on the same piece of paper. Much as a normal bundle is printed.

To demonstrate this see below.

In the following image, you can see that there are 4 pages in ‘Document 1’ , it has an even number of pages. Thus, when printing there will be no blank pages and you will end up printing 2 pages that are double-sided.

In this next image, there are 3 pages in ‘Document 3’, ie. there is an odd number of pages. Thus, when printing there will be a page with only one side printed on and the other side will be blank.

Export all bookmarks

1. From the ‘File’ menu find ‘Export Case to PDF’.

 

Or from the ‘Desk Space’ find the ‘Export case to PDF’ button

2. Move the toggle switch on for ‘Export all bookmarks’. You can choose to only export all bookmarks, or to also include all double sided printing. You will realise that there is a sub-toggle switch called ‘Include page numbers in bookmarks’ under ‘Export all bookmarks’. You can choose either of the options or both.

N.B. If before exporting your bundle you created a table of contents (ToC), then the ToC items will be automatically hyperlinked in the exported pdf. You can then simply click on the ToC items and it will take you to the relevant page in the pdf.
