A demonstration of a PDF catalogue and the up to date documentation is available here: http://en.alexander-block.net/Business/eZ-Systems/Personal-PDF-Catalogue
The PDF catalogue extension provides three new content classes used for dedicated PDF catalogues:
This means a dedicated PDF catalogue consists of one or more chapters. Each chapter is related to one or more PDF documents. A PDF document is related to exactly on PDF file (a content object of the class "file" storing a binary file with the mime type application/pdf). The PDF catalogue documents of all PDF catalogue chapters make up the pool from which a user can choose a subset to create his own, personalized PDF catalogue.
In contrast to the dedicated PDF catalogues, the common PDF catalogue is available on most of the webpages in the website frontend. It can be used to put any content node into it, from which a user can create his own PDF catalogue. Therefor the print view of each content node's full view is automatically converted into a PDF file. Finally the files will be merged together to get a catalogue.
Dedicated PDF catalogues as well as the common PDF catalogue can additionally have an introduction and an appendix that will automatically be prepended or appended whenever a user creates his own PDF catalogue. Furthermore, each PDF catalogue will get a table of contents that is created dynamically depending on the PDF documents a user has chosen. The table of contents can be configured to have a custom background (which is also a PDF document) and custom margins to support your cooperate identity.
