Define File Name Expression: Click to open the expression builder to edit the function that will evaluate to the desired image filename. Expressions are complex, not typically obvious, and very powerful, so please contact technical support for instructions on forming expressions to meet your exact needs (Default returns the first defined field [topmost in the data entry screen] data as the filename).

Select Output Folder: Click to change the output folder that will contain the exported documents (Default is the Export folder inside the Image-Master network folder).

Output Document File Format: Choose from TIF or PDF (Default is PDF).

Output: Tagged documents are each exported to individual files named by the evaluated File Name Expression. Duplicate documents are automatically suffixed by a _# incremental tie break value (_1, _2,etc..) only if required.
