    I do love this feature and i used it in a lot of ways but it would be interesting to know if there is a way to export a file that has lets say 10 conditions in different languages and export the file to PDF so in the end you get 10 separate PDF’s each with the condition name and of course the text/images from the condition (language).

    • Erica Gamet says:

      You would have to turn on/off the text for each version and export the PDF. You could even create the condition name and put it in the slug area, if you wanted that info attached to the PDF.
