are set here.

you can select the document generator, which will be used to create documents. Word processing programs
, which are suitable for generating documents can be connected via the menu Extras / Options / General settings
Keep document format
This option will keep the current format of the document.
With this option, a PDF of the current document will be created.
The document format defined here can later be selected in the Button action as the output format Server standard.
Depending on the document engine selected, different settings can be made at the bottom of the dialog.
Preserve HTML tags
HTML tags aren't available in iText. Tags such as bold or italic font won't be implemented. With the setting Preserve HTML tags
, the HTML tags will be applied to the text when a document is generated. If the setting isn't activated, the text will be added to the document without HTML tags. iText's suitability for more complex documents is therefore limited.
