Problems with PDF files created by Firefox 3.x (and possibly TBird 3.x)
recently I had to migrate from Firefox 2.x to 3.5/3.6. I have a workflow
here where lots of webpages are printed into PDF files (done via
PSCRIPT2 driver, GhostScript and ePDF up to now).
So in theory, the builtin PrintPDF solution in Firefox 3.x should not be
a real problem for me.
Therefore I moved to Firefox 3.6.3 on all machines.
However now, a few weeks (and several hundred PDFs) later I discovered 2

need them in A4. This is especially annoying as Lucide cannot print

we need to save the reports as pdf/a.
Is there a way to tell pb or let me save ghostscript to save the datawindow
as a pdf/a ?
ghostscript has some options like pdf/a but the datawindow printer seems to
ignore all settings from ghsotscript
...Looking for a PDF solution [Edit]
I am looking for a PDF component (with source) for D2010. I need to be able to create pdf documents (maybe from a template) and insert images and other pdf documents and send to a printer. There seem to be a few out there, I was looking for other peoples experience with these libraries and suggestions.
Thanks in advance for any help given.

But then used the PDF reporting in the SQLLite package they have,
opensource and it works like a charm

Does anyone know of a good library that creates PDF files that are searchable? This will most likely involve some type of OCR library having to be included. Even if I have to purchase multiple components to get the job done I can live with that. I have seen several PDF libraries, but I have yet to find one that can produce searchable PDF files.
I presume that your PDFs are actually bitmaps, not text output to a canvas. I've
used the application of ABBYY FineReader for adding OCR'd layers and it works well.
They have an SDK version at http://www.abbyy.com/ocr_sdk/

I am trying to fix an application in pb8 that uses pdf writer or pdf 995.
the program currently pops with the saveas dialog.
I would like to suppress that in PB8.
If I use PB9 can this be suppressed. I don't want to use ghost script
because that leads into new issues of licensing and so on.
Thanks In advance

And the resulting PDF is a mess, it cannot be opened, and it gives no
indication of damage until you try to open it. In other words, after
crashing and restarting firefox several times, one can be left with a
number of PDFs that are absolutely CRAP (one for each crash).
There is a crash reporter which analyses this, but I am not a techie;

I see the means to export a template of a website, but would like to export the entire website including content and if possible security settings including the User membership associated with that site.
Any tools available anyone knows of? I found a tool on snowcovered for migrating only Users although I'm not sure if it's specific to a website or the entire Membership database for the entire installation instance.

I know you didn't ask for a Delphi-component, but the closest I came to a
usable solution when I had the same need a coupe of years ago actually was

1. Native Support for printing to PDF -> no need for the ghost script
2. If ghost script, please get a licenced version that allows me to package
it up with the application so when the user installs the application
EVERYTHING is installed - the user does not have to follow a seperate set of
instructions to get the PDF functionality to work. FRUSTRATING!!!

hey guys, how do i display the database records and put it into a PDF file. i am using ABCpdf. but i have no idea how to do that reubenfoo
if you JUST need to display the database records then you can create Crystal Reports. you can give it a look like it shows as a simple html created file. and to put in a PDF file, you can have a server button; which would use the default buil-in functionality of Crystal Reports to export the data in PDF..Thanx, [KaushaL] || BloG || Profile || Microsoft MVP"I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code"Don't...
