This action can be used to run a task or change a setting prior to the PDF being generated and saved for notifications. If you change the PDF settings on the fly, you should use the gfpdf_post_generate_and_save_pdf_notification action to clean up your filter.


This action was introduced in Gravity PDF 4.5.
