Custom PDF Attributes

Custom PDF Attributes - 07/09/08 10:24 AM

Hi,

I have a requirement to generate PDFs in PlanetPress which will be picked up and processed by another application.

Is it possible to add custom attributes to a PDF which can be programmatically read by another application (in addition to the standard Title, Author, Subject, Keywords)? For example, is it possible to include specific data from the data file?

Thanks,
Colette.

Hi:

It is possible to add bookmarks in the pdf for a specific data field ( It's just a check box on the properties.)

You can also use PDFMark commands in a PlanetPress Talk passthrough to customise your pdf.

PDFMark sounds like what I'm looking for - do you have any documentation or code samples for the syntax?

Thanks,
Colette.

This post contains an example of a PlanetPress Talk calling a PDFMark function.

This web page points you to the PDFMark reference manual.

There could be some trial and error testing here to get everything right, but you should be able to get what you need from here.

Hope this helps.
