Opus 2 allows users to export out files and folders in PDF format to the local drive for offline storage and access.

Step-by-step guide

  1. The right-click Export function can be applied to any document, folder or to a multiple selection of documents and folders. Use the Shift or Ctrl key on the keyboard to select multiple documents and folders. (Note: Exporting out a folder that contains subfolders will preserve the foldering structure exactly as it is in Opus 2.)
  2. Export documents as a single PDF (combining multiple PDFs into one with a table of contents), or as multiple PDFs with a hyperlinked index (in a zip file). See more details in the table below. 
  3. By checking the box next to Annotations, the User can include any notes that have been created or shared. The selection can be refined further by tag/author and groups by using the Filter button. (Note: Choosing to include notes will add time to the document export process)
  4. By checking Stamps, the User can include all document stamps set to be displayed on export.
  5. Once all settings have been finalized, click on Export to start the export job. 
  6. A progress bar will instantly appear, indicating that the request is being submitted. This disappears once the export job is officially in the queue.

    7. A confirmation message will also appear, notifying the user that the job has been added to the queue.
