5.1. Introduction to Creating Content

Assemblage will *only* assemble PDF files.  Therefore, the content to be assembled must be in PDF format.

Assemblage utilizes several tools to create content.  The tools that you will utilize will depend largely on the source used to generate the content and how that source generates the content, and some of the content will not require an Assemblage tool at all to generate.

The Tools and their usage are as follows:

PDF Splitter - This tool is used to split PDFs that contain content for multiple recipients, clients, or portfolios.  This is typically used to split mail merged documents into one pdf per recipient.  An example of this may be an Address Sheet or Cover Letter.

Scripter -

Axys Runner - The Axys Runner (within the Scripter tool) is used to generate PDF Content from Axys. 

PPT2PDF Converter - The PPT2PDF Converter is designed to take existing Powerpoint documents from a directory structure and convert them to PDF.  You will only utilize this tool if your firm has the need to convert Powerpoint files for multiple clients, recipients, or portfolios on a large scale.   An example of this might be a powerpoint presentation that is customized per client.  You would not use this tool for converting a piece of static content that all clients will receive.

XLS2PDF Converter - The XLS2PDF Converter is designed to take existing Excel documents from a directory structure and convert them to PDF.  You will only utilize this tool if your firm has the need to convert Excel files for multiple clients, recipients, or portfolios on a large scale.   An example of this might be an Invoice or Statement that is customized per client.  You would not use this tool for converting a piece of static content that all clients will receive.

Unzipper - This tool is used for special zip files.  The purpose of this tool is to unzip the contents of a .zip file into a directory structure with a naming convention which will be used for Assembling.
