OK, my mistake. I see that you have posted this to General XMetaL Discussion, so I assume you are not working with DITA (the other posting I referenced is specific to DITA).
Please refer to the XMetaL Developer Programmers Guide for setting up PDF output for all other document types besides DITA. The relevant section is called “The Formatting Object interface” and may require you to create a least one macro. That macro will call the API previewPDF(), also described in the XMetaL Developer Programmers Guide. You you may also wish to create other macros that call saveAsPDF(), XMLToPDFSetup and perhaps even the HTML-related APIs.
I think this section of the documentation is quite good. We have had many clients successfully implement solutions based on those instructions.
