Portfolio PDF Files

Post by glima » Wed Jul 15, 2009 1:51 am

Is there any way to manipulate Portfolio PDF files? A client sent us one that has multiple PDF files. We need to be able to stamp each page with a Watermark and write it to a new file. Our current software will stamp the first file in the portfolio but not the rest.

I'm affraid xcpro40 cannot manipulate with PDF collection files as with single file, and there is no hi-level functions even to extract/embed files in a PDF collection.

There is only one solution for now - to use low-level API to extract the other PDF files from the collection, update them (as separate files), and then put them back in the collection using the same low-level API. Not a trivial task, but it will work, also requirs that you are licensed for the full PDF-XChange PRO SDK - not just the PDF-Tools SDK, to utilise low level API functions.

I am afraid not - the low level API is not supported and requires an extensive and thorough knoweledge of the PDF format.
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
