A viewable rendition is the file you see and annotate on in the Viewer. Pepper Flow creates a viewable PDF rendition by default for file types that are not viewable in a browser, such as Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. The viewable rendition is an identical or near identical representation of the originally imported source file. However, in some rare cases where Pepper Flow cannot generate a viewable rendition, or you prefer to create one yourself, you may upload your own.
You may choose to upload your own viewable rendition for the following reasons:
- The file you uploaded in Pepper Flow is an unsupported file type that does not natively generate a viewable rendition.
- The viewable rendition generated by Pepper Flow does not look accurate.
- The file you uploaded is too large (over 100MB) for Pepper Flow to generate a viewable rendition.
Upload or replace a rendition
Users who have permissions to prepare the document can upload or replace a viewable rendition when the document is in Draft.
- Navigate to the Details screen and select the “Renditions” tab.
- If a viewable rendition was previously generated by Pepper Flow, it will be listed in this tab. The “Active” label indicates which viewable rendition is currently in use in the Viewer. There can only be one “Active” viewable rendition.
- To add your own viewable rendition or replace the current one, select “Upload”. The rendition must be in PDF, PNG, or JPEG format.
- Close the Details screen and return to the Viewer.
Revising a document and carrying over the previous file will also carry over the most recent active rendition. Adding a new viewable rendition will also update the document thumbnail shown in the Library.
Please note that this feature is available in Pepper Flow R24 and later.
