i h ave to show a report in PDF which has PDF contents embedded in it as container fields.
But the final report PDF doesnot show the embedded PDF.
Is there a way to show a PDF with already present PDF contents.
Do you mean a PDF Portfolio??
Does it open as expected in Adobe Reader?
Kind of PDF Portfolio...
I need to create a report which will be saved as PDF at the end.
That report layout contains PDF as container data .
I want to show the container data (the PDF) in the report(again , a PDF)
I have seen a similar problem with pdf's inside containers. If you have a Mac, you can put a pdf into a container, then pdf the layout that contains the container, no problem.
On windows, completely different story. Same goes with printing. Nothing appears within the container, but on Mac, it prints.
I reported this as a bug back in version 12. It seems to have been ignored.
Have not tested it using web direct
Is there a solution for this on windows ??
I have tried using a webviewer on the layout and got the usual navigation bars etc... despite my extensive research into the URL switches to turn off the tools and adjust zooming and other settings, I could never seem to get the result I wanted. I have yet to discover a solution.
Showing it through web direct seems to work ok, not an ideal solution, but it works.
I am still unclear as to exactly what you are trying to achieve...
Do you want to crete a PDF of a layout which shows the 'preview' content of a container filed which contains a PDF file??
Do you want to create a Portfolio PDF which contains all of the PDF files that appear on a layout as intenally stored files, or do you want a PDF file which also contains the pages of any PDF files from the layout as a single concatenated file.
Until this is more defined all we are providing is vague guesses..
Remember - the pooling of ignorance is not knowledge
You can use MBS Plugin with DynaPDF functions on Mac and Windows (Even server) to append PDF to other PDF, render pages as pictures to display or even place PDF pages on other PDF pages,e.g. 4 on 1.
There is a layout which needs to be saved as PDF.
The layout has container field which has PDF file.
When i am trying to save the layout as PDF , the layout content having PDF is not getting saved.
