Editing and export to PDF

Some additional design and export options appear in the editor if your subscription plan allows.

Automatic page breaks

While working with the post, you can see how it will be automatically broken down into pages. To do this, there is a separate PDF mode in the editor preview.

Manual page breaks

Automatic page breaks are not universal. E.g., some block with a background may split into two parts, or logically related elements may end up on different pages. Therefore, you can insert a forced page break in the right place.

Select "PDF page break" on the right sidebar to add a page break:

You can enable or disable the top indent for the content on the next page for each break.

Important note: after adding the first page break, others will be calculated automatically, based on the position of the first one.

 

Hiding elements for the PDF version

You can set up visibility for specific items on a PDF page (e.g. hide subscription forms or CTAs):

or export from the editor page:

2. Select «Send post as .pdf».

3. You will receive the .pdf file on an e-mail, which was used to register your Style Manager account on editor.setka.io.

 

Limitations:

  1. The exported file would only contain the content created in Setka Editor. So, don't forget to make up the title in Setka Editor, to get it in the .pdf-file.
  2. The file would not be paginated. We plan to implement a pagination interface in future releases.
  3. Emoji will not be displayed in the PDF file.
  4. Only the first image will be displayed in the galleries. So, if you are planning to export the content to PDF, we don't recommend using galleries.
  5. Some videos or other embeds may not have a title image (depending on a service used to generate embeds). In the future, we plan to display video title images for the most frequently used services.
  6. You can open and edit the generated PDF file in Sketch, Adobe Illustrator or other similar applications.

What are my site requirements when importing Content Design Cloud HTML into its pages?

Your site should meet the following requirements to successfully import HTML from Setka Editor's Content Design Cloud:

  1. <script>, <link> and <div> tags should not be modified.
  2. <style> tags should not be modified. Setka Editor uses its own styles, generated by Style Manager. To display all the content correctly, these styles must retain their original appearances.
  3. data-* attributes within HTML should not be limited.

 

If you follow these guidelines but your post still looks incorrect, please contact our support team.
