Downloading Current Sheet as a PDF File

Arcadia Instant enables you to download the current sheet as a PDF file with all visuals in the sheet on one page.

Availability Notes:
Before you download the dashboard as a PDF file, navigate to the General menu, and select the Enable "Download as Image/PDF" option.

In the following example, we will demonstrate how to download our current sheet, Sheet 1, of the dashboard in a PDF file.

  1. Open any dashboard. We are using the PDF Export dashboard with two visuals.

  2. Click the (ellipsis) icon at the top left corner of the interface.
  3. Click Download as..., select PDF from the secondary menu, and then select Current Sheet.

  4. A Generating the requested file message appears.
  5. After the download is complete, open the default download folder on your computer. Arcadia Instant saves the current sheet to a *.pdf file that has the same name as the dashboard. In our example, the file name is PDF_Export.

    Note that Arcadia Enterprise renames sheets with names that contain characters not supported by the file system. For example, for the sheet "PDF/Export", it generates the file PDF_Export.pdf, replacing the forward-slash (ASCII #47) character with an underscore (ASCII #95) character.

    Notice that all visuals in the current sheet Sheet 1, are on one page. Repeat the above steps to download Sheet 2.
