XLS(X) settings

The following settings are available:

Document layout

Select the appropriate setting depending on how you plan to use the output document.

  1. Formatted text
    Retains the fonts, font sizes, and paragraphs, but does not retain the exact line spacing or locations of the objects on the page. The text produced will be left-aligned. Texts in right-to-left scripts will be right-aligned.
    Vertical texts will become horizontal.
  2. Plain text
    Does not retain the formatting.

Picture settings

You can save pictures in XLSX documents. Documents containing a large number of pictures can be very large. The quality of the pictures and the size of the resulting file can be tweaked using the options in the Keep pictures (XLSX only) drop-down list.

Tip. To change the picture saving settings, click Custom..., select the desired settings in the Custom Settings dialog box, and click OK.

Text settings

  • Keep headers and footers
    Enable this option if you want to keep the headers and footers. If this option is disabled, the headers and footers will not be preserved.
  • Ignore text outside tables
    Saves only the tables and ignores the rest.
  • Convert numeric values to numbers
    Converts numbers into the "Numbers" format in the XLSX document. Microsoft Excel can perform arithmetic operations on such cells.
  • Create separate sheet for each page (XLSX only)
    Select this option to save pages from the source document as separate worksheets.

Preserve document metadata, such as authors and keywords

Preserves the metadata when you save the document. This option is enabled by default.

If you want to make changes to the document's metadata, click the Edit Metadata... button, make the desired changes, and click OK.
