Build a Plugin
Learn how to build a plugin to customize your PDF output.
You can build a plugin to customize your PDF output. Building a plugin from scratch enables you to customize as much as you want, but requires some knowledge of XSLT and CSS. Then once the plugin is built, you can upload it into easyDITA and use it when publishing.
We recommend you use the PDF Plugin Generator first. The plugin generator enables you to easily preview and select your customizations. Once you’ve selected your customizations, it generates the plugin with the correct customization files in a zipped folder. Then if there are additional customizations you want that aren’t available in the generator, you can easily add easyDITA PDF Customizations to the generated plugin instead of having to build a plugin from scratch. Once your customization plugin is ready, you can upload it into easyDITA and add it to a publishing scenario.
Get started by creating a plugin using the PDF Plugin Generator. Then, if there are any additional customizations you want, use the easyDITA PDF Customizations.
