Early AlivePDF 0.1.5 alpha release !

We are nearly there ! For the people who are waiting for some new features and bugs to be fixed, you can find on the SVN an early alpha release of AlivePDF 0.1.5.

So what's new ?

  • OpenType/TrueType font embedding (not fully working for the moment, but you can start playing with it, so much work guys, thank you Jasper for your great help).
  • Unicode support thanks to the UnicodePDF class (used with the ArialUnicodeMS font class) developed by Quentin and Arnaud who already developed the PDFUtil class.
  • The new font engine required a new API (CoreFont (device font) and EmbeddedFont (embedded glyphes) classes added)
  • The addImage method has been improved so that it runs faster.
  • The addImage will automatically handle DisplayObject with a specific center of rotation so that it nevers get cropped like it happened in the past.
  • addImage() and addImageStream() now support GIF images (non animated) and TIFF in the folllowing days.
  • A new Resize class is introduced which is used with the addImage and addImageStream methods. It allows you to handle the resizing behavior of the image, like saying you want the image on left, center, right, in full page with no border, fit to page, or page resized, etc. A lot of new ways to show your images here :)
  • The addImageStream methods now requires you to specify a color space : ColorSpace.DEVICE_CMYK or ColorSpace.DEVICE_RGB. CMYK images are now supported (omegatiger and wayne_crede this one is for you!)
  • FullScreen mode was broken, now back and working.
  • A new setAdvanceTiming method was added to specify the number of seconds a page may last in fullscreen mode (b_shark this one is for you!)
  • JavaScript suppport through the addJavaScript method.

I hope you guys like those features ! I know that a lot of you guys were waiting for the font embedding feature which is not fully working for now, still a few hours of work and it should work smoothly.

This release is very fresh, please test it as much as possible to see it does not break anything, and give some feedbacks on the new features, log bugs if any so that we can come to a very stable 0.1.5 version.

I know, I know next release should integrate transparent PNG's, I am working on it ;)

I am also working on an updated documentation, the final release of AlivePDF 0.1.5 will come up with a brand new and updated documentation.

    Hi Thibault,
    i test the alpha-version especially the new Font-Embedding – is’t it restricted to mono-space fonts? It seems that the spacing between the chars is’nt correct? I checked a lot of fonts and all arent displayed correctly?

    But thumbs up for your work!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Boris,

    Cool to hear you are using testing 0.1.5 alpha release :)

    Yes, for the moment it should work smoothly with monospaced fonts but the space between each character for non monospace font may not render correctly. It’s still under developement.

    Did you try with monospace fonts and it worked nicely ?

    let me know,

    yes – i itried monospace fonts an the results are very nice!!

    I tried also the PdfUtilTemplate, but i think that the alpha-release isn’t yet compatible to the current version of PDFUtil – but that would be the best way – create a template, embed the fonts in flex in a standard way and use alivePDF to create the PDF – my heart is bumping when i think about that

    LG Boris

    Hi All,

    I need help.
    Any insights why there’s no “Page 1″ printed on my pdf document if it is more than one page.
    If I generate one pdf document “Page 1″ appears, though.

    I know that this is just an alpha/beta release at the moment, but still, commenting your methods wouldn’t hurt.

    I can’t get my head around EmbeddedFont since I have no idea what kind of a ByteArray is the constructor waiting for… what should that be? Maybe it’s obvious to some, but not to me… So, how can one actually embed a font?

    I am developing a program that allows a user to make a custom image “skin” that will be printed on a sticker sized for a specific odject.

    Here is the problem: my printers need a pdf with the custom graphic made in flash by the user to be on one layer, and they also need a layer on top of that which must have a vector line for the printing machine to read to make the cut that goes for the object the user is skinning.

    Can Alive pdf generate a pdf with multiple layers so it will be printer friendly like I have explained above?

    Thanks in advance

    realy great class, I love it.

    For a project of my own I need to create a PDF with 150 or 300 DPI. Today alivepdf only creates PDF’s with 72DPI, right?
    Is there any way to do it?

    After searching a while I only found the possibility of inserting a 300dpi image.

    Thanks for developing this great library.

    Regarding the Embedded Fonts, I am also confused about how to turn a font into a bytearray. I would agree with fx.barrett that it is not self evident given that there is no comments or examples.

    Great work. Thanks again.

    Hi. Can You tell us, how long will it take to provide transparent PNGs?

    I want to be able to add one image on every page in a document and then cover it by another transparent custom images. In this way, the file will be smaller.

    Now I have to generate every page separately, which isn’t good. My files are almost 10MB big… and cause lacks :(

    It’s almost Christmas time :) please please please marvellous Santa Claus!

    thanks for the whole alivepdf project :)

    Salut Thibault!
    Chapeau bas pour AlivePDF!
    J’ai cependant une question : débutant en AS3, je ne trouve pas de tutorial à travers la toile pour intégrer une police de caractère (ttf?) dans le coreFonts du pdf. Je voudrais juste pouvoir mettre mon ttf sur le serveur dans un répertoire, et y faire appel lors de la sauvegarde du pdf, pour afficher de jolis caractères.

    Is there any example of how to use UnicodePDF class?
    If I use it just as I would use PDF class and try to add a unicode text in the PDF document, the PDF reader give 114 error while trying to read the file.
    The error message is:
    “There was an error processing a page. There was a problem reading this document (114).”
    Here is how I used it:
    var pdf:UnicodePDF = new UnicodePDF(Orientation.PORTRAIT, Unit.MM, Size.A4);
    pdf.setDisplayMode(Display.FULL_PAGE, Layout.SINGLE_PAGE);
    var newPage: Page = new Page(Orientation.PORTRAIT, Unit.MM, Size.A4);
    var gujText:String = “માળવાનો કોનો મકબરો સંપૂર્ણ આરસથી સુશોભિત ભારતીય શૈલીનો છે ?”;
    pdf.addText(gujText, 10, 10);

    And then I save the generated bytes (var bytes:ByteArray = to the server as a PDF.

    Please help!
