Scius PDF library - what is in the next version.

Would you like to know what is in the next release of the Scius PDF library ?

1. Changing the page orientation on the fly,
2. Inline images that you can scale,
3. Bullet lists.

The code has been written and I'm using it, but the release is not done. That is, I haven't met my personal 'definition of done', which include examples and documentation.

I've been a bit busy of late and getting it ready has fallen down the backlog.

  3. @Victor,

    Thanks.

    @Patrick,

    The customer is a little sensitive about competitors knowing too much about the website and its role. I haven't had time to create a 'generic' example as yet - hence the small size.

    Hi Tony, it is exciting. Is this PDF library supposed to support Lotus Notes rich text?

    Thanks,

  5. Hi Johnny,

    Nope, there is no rich text to PDF support in this library. In fact I only support three types of fonts. There is nothing stopping you from adding that yourself.

    However, there are other tool kits and libraries available that might do a better job of RTF to PDF - but for a price. I saw one advertised on PlanetLotus - you could start there.
