You can set preferences for RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat to customize it for the way that you process PDF files.
Fonts tabUse the Fonts tab to select the font and size. This font is applied to the name of the markup boxes you draw in a PDF file. You use this option to change the font of the characters in your preferred language.
- Selections for style, effects, color, and type of script are not applied to the name of the markup boxes.
Use the Preview tab to set values for these properties:
- Pages to Process
- This value determines the maximum number of pages to process when you preview markup, export and view document properties, and use the Page Group Navigator. The more pages you specify, the longer RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat takes to preview markup and view document properties.
- Production Intent
- This value defines how RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat interprets PDF files. For example, when the Production Intent is Simplex, Second Front Only page placement puts markup on the second page of each page group. When the Production Intent is Duplex, Second Front Only page placement puts markup on the third page of each page group.
- Show electronic forms
- This value determines whether Preview shows how sample files look when the data is combined with electronic forms defined for the media that the files use.
Use the Address tab to set a value for the Default address block format property. The default value is displayed when you use the Define Address Block function.
Logging tabRICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat provides a log file in text format that you can customize to provide different levels of historical information. Use the Logging tab to define these properties:
- Logging Level
- The types of messages saved in the log file. Trace saves all six types. Info saves four types: informational, warning, error, and fatal messages. Fatal saves only fatal messages. Off turns off logging.
- Log Output Folder
- The directory path for the plug-in and Java log files that the system creates. The directory path must exist when the system creates the first log file. If a file does not exist, the system creates it.
- Plug-in Log File
- The file name for the plug-in log file that the system creates.
- Java Log File
- The file name for the Java log file that the system creates.
- Maximum File Size
- The upper size limit for the log. The minimum file size is 1 MB; the maximum file
size is 10 GB. When the file reaches the upper limit, the system closes the file,
renames it to include a number at the end of the name. The system keeps the file until
the value in the Number of Log Files to Retain property is reached. For example, the log file name is
Log.txt. Each renamed file is
Log.n.txt, where n is a number from 1 to the value in the Number of Log Files to Retain property. The most recent log remains
- Number of Log Files to Retain
- The number of log files that the system keeps in addition to the current log file. When this limit is reached, the system deletes the oldest log file after it creates a log file. For example, you select 3. The system keeps the current log file plus the three most recent log files.
Advanced tabUse the Advanced tab to set values for these properties:
- The internal port number for communication between RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat and its background Java process. Restart Adobe Acrobat for this value to take effect. Edit this field if you have software that uses the default port.
- Heap Size (MB)
- The number of megabytes for the desired minimum amount of memory in the Java Virtual Machine allocation pool. Restart Adobe Acrobat for this value to take effect. Experiment with this value to tune it to the size and complexity of the PDF files you mark up. When you experience delays while previewing, selecting text, using the Page Group Navigator, or extracting and exporting document properties, you might improve performance by increasing the number of megabytes. If you set the heap size to a value that is greater than the available memory, you might not be able to use RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat. In that case, decrease the heap size value, restart Adobe Acrobat, and reactivate the plug-in.
- Other JVM Options
- In addition to setting the minimum heap size, you can fine-tune other JVM memory settings. Edit this field only on the advice of your support representative.
