Current ER implements conversion to PDF at a destination level. That does not cover scenarios where Format “Excel” or “Word” node is mingled together with other “File” and/or “Folder” nodes that inside of a root Folder. The request is to have a “Convert to PDF” flag that can be turned ON at the model format level.

ER format element "convert to PDF" would allow using Excel and Word templates with "PDF Merger" creating composite PDF output from multiple files.
Common scenarios:
* PO confirmation merged with company-specific static "Purchase terms and conditions" PDF document.
* Sales invoice merged with company-specific static "Shipping and return terms" PDF page
Custom scenarios:
* PO confirmation merged with MTO product specification attached as PDF to the purchase order

To extend the idea description –
When “Excel” or “Word” format node are placed inside a folder, files generated remain Excel/Word format inside of the folder. The idea was about converting them to PDF prior to emailing out the root folder as zip-archive.
