Perform the following steps to configure the capture of PDF contents:

  1. Click “Start“ > “All Programs“ > “Kofax Capture 10.0“ > “Administration“.
  2. Right-click a batch class and then click “Properties“.
    Note: For more information on creating a batch class see chapter “Create a New Batch Class”.
  3. Click the “Queues“ tab.
  4. In the Available Queues field, select the “PDF Generator“ and the “Export” entry. Click “Add“ to add the queue to the Selected Queues field.
  5. Click the “Advanced” tab. Under Import Options, select “Allow import of eDocument files“.
  6. Click “OK“.
  7. Right-click a document class and then click “Properties“.
    Note: For more information on creating a document class see chapter “Create a New Document Class”.
  8. Click the “PDF“ tab and select Enable Kofax PDF generation.
  9. Click “OK“.

When defining the configuration for the export connector several settings can be made. To configure the export connector for capturing PDF contents perform the following steps:

  1. Right-click the document class and then click “Export Connectors“.
  2. In the Assigned Export Connectors field, select the “Fabasoft Folio“ entry. Click “Setup“.
  3. An authentication of the user is performed in Fabasoft Folio. After a successful log-in the settings can be changed.
    Note: Additional information about the configuration of the export connector can be found in chapter “Define and Configure the Export Connector“.
  4. On the „Release Definition“ tab, in the Object field, type a Fabasoft app.ducx Expression that creates a new or determines an existing PDF object.  
    Example: #FSCACROBAT@1.1:PDFObject.COOSYSTEM@1.1:ObjectCreate()[2]
  5. Click the “PDF“ tab. Following settings can be defined:
    • PDF Object
      In this field a Fabasoft app.ducx Expression can be defined that returns a PDF object. In the global scope the variable relobj is defined that is computed with the Fabasoft app.ducx Expression defined in the Object field on the “Release Definition” tab.
    • PDF Initialization
      In this field initialization values for the created or determined PDF object can be defined.
      • In the global scope of the Value field following variables are defined:
        context (extension of the content)
        cont (content of COOSYSTEM@1.1:content)
      • In the global scope of the Destination field following variables are defined:
        context (extension of the content)
        cont (content of COOSYSTEM@1.1:content)
        value (value of the computed Value)
    • Finally (PDF)
      In this field a Fabasoft app.ducx Expression can be defined that evaluates whether additional actions should take place with the created or determined PDF object. In the local scope the PDF object is available.
      Example: To put the PDF object on the desk of the user following Fabasoft app.ducx Expression can be defined:
      COODESK@1.1:ShareObject(,,#COOSYSTEM@1.1:objchildren,
      coort.GetCurrentUserRoot())
  6. The batch class can now be published (see chapter “Publish a Batch Class“) and a new batch can be created and processed (see chapter “Create and Process a New Batch“).
