I’ll postpone the witch-hunt until I have some better direction: Thanks I guess- so the text ends up being totally inseparable from the artwork?

I take it from your question that you don’t know all that much about PDF?

Flattening a form | iText Developers

I think I’ve been quite clear on this point too- nothing wrong with either but Adobe seems to have many customers with information that put it into PDF and end up only with pictures.

It does seem to have made a good point of comparison and contrast. Post as a guest Name. Sign up itsxt Facebook. Heck, plain ol’ Java might do to the trick in some cases. PojoFactory ; import com.

If you mean text around a blob of pixels of known size and constant Z, it would seem to be an easy problem to put one behind the other but certainly non-uniform Z would complicate things although you could pass back a Z-buffer back from the rendering etc etc. The CAD example from Adobe shows it is possible to put a lot of model information into the file but if you just need a few words or numbers I’d like to be able to get the word or numbers out. You miiight want to contract this one out At worst then this come down to the same “typesetting” or “reflow” issues that always come up.

PdfImportedPage ; import com. So if a line is drawn from A to B, the Location has changes. Director ; import com. If you’re new to iText, please jump to chapter rasterizze immediately. BaseFont ; import com. PdfContentByte ; import com.


Are you concerned that the PDF doesn’t have enough information to render itself without being opened in Reader? And you can’t tell which until you peel the PDF open rasterrize start rooting around in it.

These examples were written in the context of Chapter 6 of the book “iText in Action – Second Edition”. Inwe released iText 7, a brand new version of iText that was no longer compatible with previous versions, but that was created with pdfHTML in mind.

In reply to this post by Mike Marchywka-2 Regarding the suggestions on how to tackle my rasterze, thank you. FileOutputStream ; import java.

MovieComparator ; import com. Image ; import com. Have not gotten the selective rasterization to do what I want yet; it seems to rasterize the text too, but probably my mistake.

This approach will work even itdxt the “Graphics” you’re trying to remove are line art, pattern fills, rasterie what have you. I am a programmer so its not out of the question; it’s just a big investment in time I had hoped to avoid: The same is true of many compressed formats- there are always tradeoffs. And that’s even assuming no transparency or filter effects in place. HsqldbConnection ; import com. You can set a PRStream’s data directly, though you might have to deal with some compression filters that iText doesn’t know about yet.

Several design choices that made perfect sense when iText was first released in the yearwere still present in iText 5 sixteen years later. iitext

With html you could just swap out the images. Gosh No, my attacks or rwsterize boil itfxt to exactly the point you made earlier- one is more for information the other for presentation.

iText 7: Converting HTML to PDF with pdfHTML

A lot of work was spent on the new Renderer framework. PdfCopyFields ; import com. Set ; import java. If you wanted every cell to contain text in a font different from the default font, you needed to set that font for the content of every separate cell.

Render the pages to some image format at the resolution you want using any available PDF renderer GhostScript for example.

Because you can push and pop the graphic state, its quite possible to isolate various graphic elements such that they do not affect one another at all. Looking for advice on the best approach to do rasterkze others may have tried.

HTML puts meaning first.

I’ll even concede that “along with freedom comes responsibility” and if you offer a versatile format it can be difficult to sell the right defaults to every customers but in this case it seems the format lacks some versatility versatility has to be realizable, not just hypothetical and it itrxt like this comparatively simple task is not simple.

If the image was rotated, you’ll get to Have Fun With Trigonometry.
