Hi to all,

I'm running ELN v. and I'm trying to add a new command to export entire collection (i.e., Experiment collection) in pdf format. I found an article in the FAQ section (link ) referred to ELN version 11.0.4.

I reproduce the steps reported below but the command in the context menu do not appears.

Please can someone help me to configure the command?

Thank you in advance


1- Login to ELN as an admin
2- Do a Browse all and go to Configuration->Collection Types
3- Right click Chemistry Notebook and select Collection Type Configuration
4- Select Commands and then click New Command
5- Name the command accordingly (Export to PDF or similar) and select AppendixRender9.ExportPDFCCommand in the Implementation list
6- Click Custom Properties. Add all the section types that are used in Chemistry Experiments (Set Rendered Section Types)
7- Configure each section type with its respective rendering template. Click OK
8- Expand the command you created and select Command Listeners
9- Click New Command Listener. Name the listener accordingly and select ENRenderWord9.ExportMultiplePdfAddin
10- Click Custom Properties and select Chemistry Notebook, Chemistry Experiment and any other experiment types that can be added to Chemistry Notebooks. Click OK
11- Close the configuration and Refresh the session (F5)
12- Browse to any Chemistry Notebook, right click and select Export to PDF. You should get a list to choose which experiments and sections you want to export.

I just noticed that this post has seen no replies, atleast this is what I can see on the forum. Your problem must have been resolved by now, since this is a very old post, but in case you are still wonder how this can be achieved, I have some suggestions.

Just a clarification on your question. So you want to export multiple experiments from a notebook to a PDF? If that is right, you should configure these steps on an experiment collection rather than on the notebook. I tried configuring this on a notebook and it didn't worked but when you configure this on an experiment, I think you can achieve your expected result. I tried this on version 12.1.10 and it worked.

Let me know the results after trying this.

Hello. I would also like to export multiple experiments from a notebook to a PDF. When you say configure the steps on an "experiment collection", what do you mean? In the hierarchy on the left you have Everyone>User>Notebooks>Experiments. Which of those levels are you configuring the steps on? The command is already there to export to pdf a single experiment--were you able to export multiple in one go--say 100 experiments at once?
Thanks in advance for any help
