Further Information


The getDocumentName function of the titrules.js JavaScript uses the document name at the time of printing to define this macro. This JavaScript is included to give PDF-XChange Standard priority over other applications when documents are saved. This is a necessary process because of the complicated manner in which Microsoft defines document names. Please note that modifying the titjules.js JavaScript is a complicated process that only experienced JavaScript programmers should perform.
