In the area of the "your PDF file reading mode", you have the ability to read your PDF files :
- with Acrobat Reader ("show with Acrobat Reader" function checked) either. This mode assumes that the Acrobat Reader software is installed on your Player. In this mode you can zoom within the 'box PDF' to improve readability or display a portion of the pages in your PDF file.
- or to transform each page of the PDF into image (function "Transform in image" checked). With the possibility in this case choose the internal resolution of the images to get more or less by definition, and therefore readability.

In this example we have chosen to playout a design with a PDF box in portrait mode (the PDF file in question is also in portrait A4 format).
We have defined a PDF box with a ratio equivalent to A4 size.
NB : afin d’’avoir la certitude de diffuser la totalité des pages que vous avez choisi dans votre fichier PDF, il est préférable de mettre la boîte fond en “Auto End”.
