3. Select your template in the given list


Note: at this step of use of the pdf import, you are not able to add a template to the list. You can only use templates that already figure in the list.

4. (Optional) Advanced settings

In advanced settings you have the possibility to change the default parameters. We will focus here only on 5 of them. The parameters that are not mentioned don’t precise to be changed or field.

▪                Whole document: you choose to import all the pages of your PDF
