How to Specify PDF Builder for Output

We offer three different means of generating PDF output through our engines: our internal Windward PDF renderer, Microsoft Office PDF and PdfTron. We use our internal PDF render by default. Here are the instructions on how to specify which PDF builder you want yo use for output.

If you use the Java Engine, you can specify your desired PDF builder in the file. To do so set these properties:

  • For PDFtron builder:
  • For Microsoft Office PDF builder, you will need the "OfficeToPdf.exe" file. To get this file please contact our support team at Once you have the file, enter the following values in the file:
OfficeToPdf.exe= "PATH_TO\\OfficeToPdf.exe"

Make sure to include the name of the exe in the PATH_TO\\OfficeToPdf.exe
