Templates for any rendering engine
The XF Designer is a standalone application for template design that can be used with any rendering engine. The easy-to-use visual design capabilities of XF Designer can be used to export XSL and XSL-FO, so templates can be formatted for any engine.
Because many rendering engines are not advanced enough to handle all of the advanced functionality that XF Designer provides, we offer the External Engine Module (EEM). It is specifically designed to help users properly configure the XF Designer and its features to any rendering engine.
The External Engine Module lets users configure a different rendering engine for XF Designer and removes unsupported XSL-FO elements from the generated output. Users can set the output to be compliant with either XSL-FO 1.0 and XSL-FO 1.1.
To see an output comparison we can send you two sample XSLT files to process with your engine. One will be with the EEM utility and the other without. You can easily compare the files to see the transformation. Please let us know if you need to request samples.
Important: The External Engine Module is disabled in trial mode. This limitation will disappear when you install a license for the External Engine Module add-on.
