There is a complexity to the PDF export requestor that I still do not
fully understand. Perhaps it needs one or more help buttons that bring
up a small window explaining the purpose of various settings.
If this works, it might also be done for the various features related to
PDF forms, which I also find confusing. Sometimes all you need is a
quick reminder rather than diving into the online docs or going to the
Wiki. Tooltips are Ok, but are terse and sometimes cryptic.
