Re: Any known issues PDF ver 1.3 with blank PDF Producer?

Hi Stefan Thanks for the quick response. Two questions - 1. Do you think setting the Author would solve the problem? Is it not the Producer that would need to be set? 2. I notice you refer to PXCp_SetDocumentInfoA whereas in the past we've used PXCp_SetDocumentInfoW What's the difference? Thanks, Da...

Thanks Stefan

Can you give an approximate release date?

If it's not likely to be in the near future will you consider adding this fix into a release of the current version?

Re: Any known issues PDF ver 1.3 with blank PDF Producer?

UPDATE: I have stepped through our source code and can advise that the problem occurs in the call to
PXCp_InsertPagesTo

It causes an Access Violation at address 100226D5 in module xcpro40.dll - read of address 00000000

Hope this helps.

Re: PDFX4DRV_API.pdf Documentation Woes

Hi Stefan

Another confusing point (pardon the pun) is the FontSize in Section HeaderFooters.
This has a similar description "Specifies font size for the text. Font size is specified in tenth of point" but also states "Default value: 100"

Is the default really 100 point or is that another mistake?

Re: PDFX4DRV_API.pdf Documentation Woes

OK, Thanks. The way the font size is worded "Font size is specified in tenths of a point" made me think that 120 would be 12 point. Perhaps it could be reworded as "Font size is specified in points, with up to 1 decimal place eg 12 or 12.5"
