Using MadeForLayers Layer Views in MadeToPrint

MadeToPrint has the capability to use layer views from MadeForLayers for printing and the export to various file formats (PDF, EPS and various image file formats).

Layer Views in MadeForLayers

Layer Views in MadeForLayers with multi-lingual or regional variants of a publication (see tutorial Language layers in MadeForLayers).

Add a new MadeToPrint Setting

In this example a MadeToPrint job is created, and the layer views are exported to a PDF/X-4 file.

Printer Settings

Under Printer (1) you can select the destination file (PDF). The PDF default settings are opened by clicking the Setup... button (2).

In this example, the default PDF/X-4:2008 (3) is used since it supports PDF/X as well as layers.

Layer Settings

Under Layers you will find two options that allow you to open the layer views from MadeForLayers.

Two modes are listed at the bottom: Print default layer view and Print all layer views separately.

  • Selecting the option Print default layer view (1) applies the default view (which you may have defined yourself) to the PDF file.

  • The option Print all layer views separately (2) causes all layer views that were created in the original document to be included in the export.

Finally, the selection is saved (3).

Using MadeToPrint Setting

In the start window of MadeToPrint, you can then select and use the new setting by pressing the Print button.
