How to transform document to PDF using Alfresco user interface? On the page http://localhost:8080/alfresco/service/mimetypes I clearly see, that there are available transformations to PDF for documents DOC and DOCX types. But in Alfresco user interface I cannot find an option allowing me to transform document to PDF.

The easiest maybe is that you can download the PDF directly from the previewer in document details. 

From javascript API point of view you have:

transformDocument | Alfresco Documentation 

or this:

https://community.alfresco.com/docs/DOC-5367-javascript-api-cookbook#jive_content_id_Create_Document... 

so you can easily create a rule, that executes this JS API, or even create a custom action for this purpose.

And it is also possible to enable the document-transform action to appear for documents in the document library:

share/share-documentlibrary-config.xml at develop · Alfresco/share · GitHub

You also have the option in Share to create a folder rule which performs the action to "Transform and copy content" to Mimetype "Adobe PDF Document", etc.

hi everyone

how can i do to put this action in the documents actions after i preview the document?

if this is possible, the users will transform documents to pdf without admins having to create a transformation rule.

Hi @dnhatsave,

It's always best to create a new topic rather than add your question to the end of another one, especially a solved topic. People often see it's solved & don't bother to look at it again.

So, my advice is to start a new post for your issue.
