Legal values

  • True indicates the Exporter should omit any <picture>s that occur within document richtext and contain <gif>, <jpeg>, <notesbitmap>, or <cgm>. Use this option to save space and improve Exporter performance when exporting documents whose pictures are not needed.
  • False (default) indicates all pictures will be included in the DXL output.


Pictures that occur within <imagemap> are not omitted.

Pictures that occur within <attachmentref> are not omitted unless attachments are omitted, using the OmitRichtextAttachments property. Use the PictureOmittedText property to specify replacement text (if desired) for where the <picture> is omitted.
