Santa Claus and AlivePDF

Christmas-gift-red-bowRecently, I saw a message from wayne on the AlivePDF forum, asking for some gifts related to AlivePDF. It made me smile cause actually I was able to spend a whole day on the embedding font problem and finally made it to work :) It seems like Santa Claus is bringing font embedding to AlivePDF, finally!

Here is a PDF generated just now with the upcoming AlivePDF update ;)

I will post that new release to the SVN in a few days, I am heading to New York for a few days for New Year's eve, Happy new year to everyone, 2010 will rock with AlivePDF!

    Hi Thibault,

    I was getting worried there – couldn’t get to your site (via bytearray nor alivepdf) for love nor money!

    Just seen this post – I guess I must have been a good boy in 2009 as this font issue is the perfect gift!

    I’ll look forward to testing the updates in the SVN when they’re there…

    All the very best to you sir – I trust 2010 brings you all it possibly can!

    Hi Thibault,

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you.

    I’ve been watching/playing with AlivePDF for quite a long time and I think it’s great, however it lacks one feature that’s getting mentioned every once in a while in comments and I’m sure it’ll make an ENORMOUS difference for many people if implemented – the ability to grab _vector_ graphics from a Flash movie and putting them into PDF _without rasterizing them_.

    Could you please let myself and others waiting for this feature know whether it’s doable and whether it’s in your plans?

    Thank you for your work!

    Hi wayne,

    Yes, the server crashed. Fortunately the hard disk could be restored and data recovered. Now everything is back and safe ! :)

    Happy to hear you like what is coming in AlivePDF ;)


    Yes, querying graphics at runtime in the SWF would rock, there is a request that I opened for that. Please vote :

    For now, after talking to the FP engineers, it seems like it would be challenging, but I keep hope. Let’s cross our fingers.

    Thibault — First off, thanks for making available this great library! I’m really anxious to get the update with the fixes for font embedding. Could you provide more information as to when you plan to make the new code available?

    Hey guys,

    Just want to keep you updated. The latest release is available in the SVN as 0.1.5 RC. The reason why it took a little more time is that I fixed some remaining bugs posted on google issues.

    I will make a proper post very soon to explain new API’s and new features and behaviors and bugs fixed.

    Can you make early tests with it and let me know,

    Hi Thibault,

    I’m almost there with it! I’m feeding the emdeddedFont method with a byteArray of an AFM file and, sure enough the font and the spacing is looking spot-on! Only couple of problems I’m having is that, when opening up the created PDF I’m getting error messages about the font containing a bad Bounding Box – and then if I try to Preflight the PDF I get another error prompt – “Unknown error (unknown exception). Neither of these errors appeared on the example PDF you’d posted.

    May well be something I’ve not quite got my head around (in fact – this is very likely the case!).

    Many thanks for the update!

    Hi, tried the new font embedding with only one font yet though(direktor.ttf).. looking good!!! great work!!! was waiting for it for a long time…

    i have a totally out of topic question. I am currently building a card designer in flash allowing the user to insert text and imges and place them on the card where wanted. The final result is a generated card in pdf format for printing. I am having some issue, what is the conversion of px into point or inch. e.g. if a user places a text at coordinates (80,100), what should i use in my pdf? (80,100) with Unit.POINT??

    Hi wayne,

    Excellent, spacing is ok that’s the most important thing :)

    There must be a little problem left to fix, can you send me the font and afm file you are using to thibault {at} ?

    I have a project on the go that AlivePDF is perfect for, but I can’t seem to find any examples of how the 1.5 beta actually works!

    Where do I find some code to look at?

    Hi Thibault,
    I need urgent, very urgent, a response about the vector issue? Is it possible to add to pdf a displayobject and to remain vectorized and not to transform in raster?

    Please give me a sure response, because i am stuck in that thing.

    Hi Cirprian,

    Not, it is not possible to add a DisplayObject as vector content in the PDF. There is no way right now in Flash Player, to retrieve in AS3 the vector data from an authored DisplayObject.

    It would be possible to do it however for a dynamic DisplayObject that you are drawing dynamically with the drawing API.

    Let me know what you are trying to achieve exactly.

    Thanks for the feedback.
    I need in someway, from an existing vectorized shape in flash to export a vector format. Something like eps or pdf … anything, but i need to do that, but from already existing vectorized shape.
    is AlivePDF is able to embed swf in pdf?
    or do you have any ideas how to export vector format from flash?

    Salut Thibault,

    On travaille en ce moment sur un projet ou on va utiliser alivePDF. Mais il nous fallait la plus dernière version de 0.15 que l’on peut charger par SVN à google code.

    La documentation manquait, mais je l’ai compilé avec ASDOC moi-meme. Il y avait quelques erreurs dans le format des descriptions, mais je les ai corrigées.

    Si tu veux, je peux te l’envoyer dans un mail. Il y en a peut-etre d’autres aussi qui on a besoin.

    Apart ca, AlivePDF est une application absolument fantastique!

    Je suis suédois, alors excuses mes erreurs eventuelles d’ortographes.

    Hi Thibault, i have been working on a project for web to print solutions and we have been watching the development of this great project closely. We have a closed beta at the moment but we would love to have you check out our work so far.

    Contact me if you are interested and i’ll set you up with an account.

    We are using fpdf at the moment but we really want to convert to AlivePDF once we get the embedded fonts to work.

    First off I’d like to say I’m really impressed with this library so far, very powerfull and easy to use.

    I’ve really anxious to see the embedded font support, I tried using the latest code from google, but it different enough from the earlier release to not really be all that intuitive to configure. Any word on when we’ll get to see at least a source code sample of using the new font embedding code?
