The Content-based File Naming is one of the many new and exciting features that was introduced in the latest BiBatchConverter and Document Converter Server. By using the Content-based File Naming feature, users can place a specific text (For example ##~~Filename=Invoice 0066050137~~) into their documents, and the software will automatically save the printed document with the specified filename. This feature allows users to more efficiently specify the document name individually for all their documents!
