should I choose PDFReport instead of GHOSTSCRIPT and a printer driver
- aren't they free?
should I choose PDFReport instead of a GPL solution - aren't they free?
A lot of people like me verifies if a program uses a GPL techonology but closes its sources - when this happens, we ask by our lawyers to have the sources of your programs and disclose them on the net... (as granted by the GPL license you would have accepted using the software). Of course, I think you wouldn't like this.
AS I REALLY LOVE GPL, I HATE THOSE WHO VIOLATE THAT LICENSE AND PRINCIPLE, egoistically using GPLd open sources without disclose their own.
On the other side - if you are an individual, a student, or if you want to open source your program, those libraries can be even better than my PDFReport, with less cost, and my suggestion is USE THEM!
Can I open or edit existing PDF files with PDFReport?
No. PDFReport XP doesn't allow to open other pdf files. It is designed to CREATE pdf files, not to edit them.
Can I use PDFReport to print PDF files?
No. PDFReport XP is not a PDF Viewer. Use Acrobat OCX instead.
Can I use my Truetype fonts with PDFReport?
Yes. Truetype fonts must be installed to be used by the component; you should also copy the *.ttf file to the program folder or another folder to be sure:
a) that the program
using PDFReport has enaugh permissions to read the file (ASP pages cannot
read all folders!)
Is PDFReport a printer driver?
No. PDFReport XP doesn't allow to print existing documents to PDF: it is designed to be used by your code directly through its API.
- a printer driver
doesn't scale well with multiple users/requests
Our DLL has all these advantages.
If you need to print to PDF, you have to buy a PDF printer driver. As a Printer driver isn't Royalty Free, you also need to buy a copy for every program you sell, and you cannot deploy a Trial version (you should buy a license of the driver even for the Trial versions!).
By the way: GHOSTSCRIPT IS NOT FREE FOR COMMERCIAL USE. If you use it and you are not a private individual, you have to pay for it, just like any other software. So, don't even think that exists a pdf printer driver free of charge.
I password protect my PDF files made with PDFReport?
I use your PDFReport to create a Scan2PDF software? or a "Something2PDF"
Why the files are bigger than with PDFReport XP?
Because we haven't completed the compression routines for the .Net version at the moment. The feature will be added in the future and given for free to registered users. Generated files are normally 20%/40% bigger. If size is a problem, go with PDFReport XP or PDFReport ZeroAdmin.
