  1. Use one of the following two methods to begin the transformation process:
    • To apply the transformation scenario to a newly opened file, use the Apply Transformation Scenario(s) (Alt + Shift + T, T (Command + Alt + T, T on OS X)) action from the toolbar or the XML menu.
    • To customize the transformation or change the scenario that is associated with the document, use the Configure Transformation Scenario(s) (Alt + Shift + T, C (Command + Alt + T, C on OS X)) action from the toolbar or the XML menu.
  2. Select the DocBook PDF transformation scenario in the DocBook 4 or DocBook 5 section.
  3. Click the Apply associated button to run the transformation.
