You can choose to display non-text files such as images and signatures on your document output, or save them to another service. This will be set up under Step 3 when creating a new Destination.

Note: This option is only available when creating a Destination and can not be changed or added when editing a previously created Destination.

Select a service from the dropdown menu to deliver images, signatures and sketches to.

Selecting Image Options

None (inline)

When None (inline) is selected, your image(s) will be present in the document created by the destination. This is the default option.
