PDF Layers (Optional Content Group)

Post by wageoghe » Tue Jul 29 2008

Does the Amyuni PDF Converter support the creation of PDF layers (Optional Content Group)? I don't see anything in the programmer's guide that indicates such support. If not supported directly via an explicit API (we are using the ActiveX API from VB6), is it possible to inject layer information directly via the Win32 ExtEscape function? Are PDF layers even created/stored that way?

We are currently using version 2.5 in our delivered product, but have access to more current versions so we could upgrade if necessary.

Thanks for any help.

Hello,

The current version of the PDF Converter doesn't support the creation of layered PDFs.

The creation of layered PDFs is planned for our next version of the PDF Creator.

For the PDF Converter we are currently checking if we will add layers support to it or not. I will definitely let you know.

For future readers of this thread, Amyuni PDF Converter does support PDF Layers since version 4.0.
