Chapter 4. The Menubar

The File Menu

FileOpen... (Ctrl+O)

Open a supported file or Okular document archive. If there is already an opened file it will be closed. For more information, see the section about Opening Files.

FileOpen Recent

Open a file which was used previously from a submenu. If a file is currently being displayed it will be closed. For more information, see the section about Opening Files.

FileImport PostScript as PDF...

Open a PostScript® file and convert it to PDF.

FileUndo close tab (Ctrl+Shift+T)

Reopen the last closed document. This action is active only if you have closed some document in tab during the current session.

FileOpen Containing Folder

Open folder that contains the current document in your favorite file manager. This action is especially useful for the case when you have downloaded a PDF file from the internet that opens itself in Okular. The location of this file may not be clear or easy to find without this feature.

FileSave (Ctrl+S)

Saves the document including all the changes (annotations, form contents, etc.), provided the document backend supports saving those changes. If the backend does not support saving the changes, the user will be given the option to either discard or to save them together with the document in an Okular document archive.

FileSave As... (Ctrl+Shift+S)

Saves the document under a new name including all the changes (annotations, form contents, etc.), provided the document backend supports saving changes. If the backend does not support saving the changes, the user will be given the option to either discard or to save them together with the document in an Okular document archive.

Note

Note that, due to the way this is implemented, even if there are no changes to the file, the new file need not to be an exact bit-for-bit copy of the original file (e.g. can have a different SHA-1 hash, etc.).

FileReload (F5)

Reload the currently open file.

FilePrint... (Ctrl+P)

Print the currently displayed document. Please take into account that Okular has some specific options for printing PDF which are available via pressing the Options >> button then choosing the PDF Options. Use these options to print your annotations or configure rasterization mode if you have problems with printing some symbols or need to change the scale mode.

Note

The scale mode options are only available when you check the Force rasterization option.

FilePrint Preview...

Show a preview of how the currently displayed document would be printed with the default options.

FileProperties

Display some basic information about the document, such as title, author, creation date, and details about the fonts used. The available information depends on the type of document.

Note

Please pay attention on the information about substituting font in the Fonts tab of the Properties dialog. Many problems with font rendering can be solved by installing of the substituted fonts.

FileEmbedded Files...

Show the files embedded in the document, if the document has any. For more information, see the section about the Embedded Files.

FileExport As

This item contains the export formats the current document can be exported to. The first entry for all kind of documents is always Plain Text...

The second entry is Document Archive, which allows you to save the document with your annotations into an Okular-specific archive format. Thus it is easily possible to share the original document and your annotations with other Okular users or work with them collaboratively.

FileShare

This item contains the services which can be used to share the current document with other people or send it to your devices. The entries in this sub-menu are controlled by the system. They depend on the current document format and the installed KPurpose plugins.

FileQuit (Ctrl+Q)

Close Okular.
