Print reports to a PDF file

Any of the reports generated by the Interlink Circulation program can be “printed” to a PDF file for remote printing, emailing, or archival purposes.

Although Interlink Circulation does not directly create PDF documents, it is possible to create a PDF through the use of a third-party program.

Here’s how:

  1. Close the Interlink Circulation program if it is open.
  2. Download (or purchase) and install any of the recommended third-party PDF programs referenced at the end of this document.
  3. Open up the Interlink Circulation program.
  4. From the File… menu, select Configure Printers …
  5. Identify the type of report(s) you wish to be created as a PDF (Labels, Renewals, Page Reports)
  6. In the Printer Name: drop-down box, select the PDF printer installed on your system. If no PDF printers are available in the list, restart your computer and try again. If there are still no PDF printers available, please contact technical support for your PDF product.
  7. Confirm the checkbox next to advanced drivers is unselected.
  8. Confirm the circle next to Printer Name: is filled in.

Upon completion, all reports of the type(s) you performed these steps on will be sent to the PDF printer installed with your third-party PDF software.
