How to export posts from Setka Content Cloud in HTML or in PDF.

A Design Cloud subscription plan makes it possible to use Setka Editor from a personal account without the need for CMS integration. Users can create posts in their browsers before simply exporting the resulting HTML-code into any content management platform.

How to create a post?

  1. Click the Posts > Create Post;

  2. Create a post and save it by clicking Save post below.

To save and exit, click Exit & Save.

Posts are sorted by date on the Posts page.

Design Cloud subscription plans are available upon request; please reach out to [email protected].

Export to PDF and editing the PDF version

Some additional design and export options appear in the editor if your subscription plan allows.

Automatic page breaks

While working with the post, you can see how it will be automatically broken down into pages. To do this, there is a separate PDF mode in the editor's preview.

Manual page breaks

Automatic page breaks are not universal. E.g., some blocks with the background may split into two parts, or logically related elements may end up on different pages. Therefore, you can insert a forced page break in the right place.

Select PDF page break on the Side Toolbar to add a page break:

You can enable or disable the top indent for the content on the next page for each break.

After adding the first page-break, others will be calculated automatically, based on the position of the first one.

Hiding elements for the PDF version

You can set up visibility for specific items on a PDF page (e.g., hide subscription forms or CTAs):

2. Select Send post as .pdf:

3. You will receive the .pdf file via an e-mail used to register your Setka Account.

Limitations:

  1. The exported file would only contain the content created in Setka Editor. Don't forget to make up the title in Setka Editor to get it in the PDF file.

  2. The file would not be paginated. We plan to implement a pagination interface in future releases.

  3. Emoji will not be displayed in the PDF file.

  4. Only the first image will be displayed in the galleries. So, if you plan to export the content to PDF, we don't recommend using galleries.

  5. Some videos or other embeds may not have a title image (depending on a service used to generate embeds). In the future, we plan to display video title images for the most frequently used services.

  6. You can open and edit the generated PDF file in Sketch, Adobe Illustrator, or other similar applications.

What are my site requirements when importing Content Design Cloud HTML into its pages?

Your site should meet the following requirements to import HTML from Setka Editor's Content Design Cloud:

  1. <script>, <link> and <div> tags should not be modified.

  2. <style> tags should not be modified. Setka Editor uses its own styles, generated by Content Design System Manager (CDSM). To display all the content correctly, these styles must retain their original appearances.

  3. data-* attributes within HTML should not be limited.

If you follow these guidelines, but your post still looks incorrect, please contact our support team.
