Page with file

Content page

You want to include pages with embedded files in the application menu. When the page is opened, the file opens directly in a separate window.

Include files in pages of type Content (instead of type File) so that you can add a heading and descriptive text to the file, for example.

Change or delete file

1. Change file:

To replace an existing PDF file, simply select a new file from your local hard drive and save the change. It is not necessary to delete the old PDF file beforehand.

2. Delete file:
If you would like to delete the file, tick the Delete checkbox and save the change.

All pages appear by default as a separate menu item in the menu bar of the app.
However, the pages can also be assigned as a subpage of any menu item page.
