PDF Contact Sheet

Once selected in your bottom collection bar or via "Manage My Collections" you can create a contact sheet for any collection by clicking the "Contact Sheet" option in the Actions list. This will bring you to a configuration page where you can choose page size, number of columns, orientation and number of thumbnails per page for your sheet. When you click "Preview", a small thumbnail will be made showing you the layout that your selected configuration will produce. When you click "Create" it will allow you to download the PDF contact sheet.

Setting certain fields to show based on display mode selected

For list sheet style:

$config_sheetlist_fields      = array();
$config_sheetlist_include_ref = true;

For thumbs sheet style:

$config_sheetthumb_fields      = array();
$config_sheetthumb_include_ref = true;

For single sheet style:

$config_sheetsingle_fields      = array();

Note: the arrays should contain only the ID of the fields you would like to use.
