To Print a set of documents to PDF, first run a search, or select a filter, a folder of documents, a saved search or checked documents in the current Grid list to specify the documents to be printed. 

With the deployment of Reveal 11.10, updates will be implemented without interrupting running print jobs. This will facilitate continuous improvement of Reveal without impact on workflow.

    1. Act On - Choose Selected documents (if relevant) or All documents in results list.
