Visually position an image and text on an existing pdf page

Post by Vories » Mon Mar 21, 2005 11:17 pm

I need to place some text and a graphic on an existing pdf page without covering any of the existing page information. What is the best way to accomplish this?

Not easy I am afraid, as there is no WYSIWYG means to achieve this at this time.

You will need to work out the exact location co-ordinates of the available space you wish to fill and then use the 'watermark' functions to add the required text to the page.
If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.

Best regards
