How to enable single category export using high level renderer [Embedded views]

Swing PDF Converter will render empty view in pdf document if high level rendering engine is used on document with embedded view that shows single category and if "Show single category" view value is Lotus formula. 
NOTE: This issue does not appear when using low level document rendering engine.
           If you want to know how to enable low leveling renderer please take a look at this article.

Single category formulas don't work "out of the box" using high level renderer because view formula code is compiled and there is no way of decompiling or evaluating it using available LotusScript functions or formulas.

Please follow this steps in order to enable embedded view single category export using high level renderer:
  • Alternative form using documents original form should be created.
    Take a look at this article to learn more about alternative forms.

  • On alternative form, new hidden, computed text field called "SwEmbeddedViewFormula" should be created.
    Fields default formula must be view's "Show single category" formula written as string.
