Couldn't able to save PDF original with redlining function

Hi Friends,

I Could able to view PDF originals in DIR thru redlining and when I try to save it is storing as "bitmap(.bmp)" file. I try with other workstation like Auto CAD also, but the same.

I defined PDF workstation in DC30 as :

File format : .pdf,.*

MIME type : application/pdf

Define workstation application -> Define workstation application in network = EAIWeb.webviewer2D.1 %SAP-CONTROL% . This I did for all application types i.e - 1 Display , 2 Change, 3 Print

Define workstation application -> Setup office integration for doc. type, work station and appl. type combination defined Technique= LINK_SERV

Did I miss any thing.

I defined MS word & MS Excel and defined as Define workstation application -> Define workstation application in network =%SAP-OFFICE-INTEGRATION.OUTPLACE%. In this case it is working fine.

I want to understand why PDF and other workstation application couldn't able to save in same format, as it is storing in bitmap format.

Regards,

Sai Krishna

    Hi Sai,

    ECL viewer does not support redlining function for pdf or word/excel files,hence your issues.For supported file formats,please refer http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/PLM/EAIViewerFile+Formats

    • Hi,

      We can do this in another way. After opening the file go to menu bar >> Originals >>Copy to (before that select row of original) . Choose the path & save the Document.
