1.8.2. Output configurations
In the previous chapter you've created a new publication configuration which is now listed as an entry in the "Publications" list. Below is the "Output Configurations" list, which initially contains 5 entries, one for each output format that is supported by Docmenta: HTML, Web Help, PDF, EPUB and DocBook:

In the next chapter, we'll create a static HTML export as an example. To see the current settings for the HTML output configuration, select the entry with ID "html" and click the "Edit" button next to the list. Alternatively you can double-click the entry. This will open the output-configuration dialog. The dialog has three tabs: "General", "Numbering" and "HTML". The "General" and "Numbering" tabs contain settings which are available for all output-formats:
Figure 1.8.4. Output configuration: general settings
Figure 1.8.5. Output configuration: numbering settings
The "HTML" tab provides settings which are specific for the HTML format. Besides static HTML this also includes Web Help and EPUB (though not all of the settings make sense for Web Help and EPUB and are therefore disabled for these formats).

For this tutorial just leave the default settings and click the "Cancel" button to close the dialog.
Click the "pdf" entry in the list to see the default settings for PDF output. The first two tabs, "General" and "Numbering" are the same as for HTML output, whereas the third tab, "PDF", contains PDF specific settings:

Click the "Cancel" button to close the dialog without saving any changes.
For details on the settings in the output-configuration dialog, see 'Output configuration' in the Reference Manual.
The following chapters in this tutorial describe how to use the output-configurations for creating publication exports.
