Any Hope for .Net Standard?

We've been using an older version of GdPicture on .Net Framework for years. However, most of our new development is all .Net Core/Standard. Most of our image processing is being moved to Azure Functions and Microsoft is making it very hard to create functions that are not .Net Standard. Is there any...

Delete Text from PDF

I don't see anything that would help in the reference guide, but I wanted to ask. Is there any way to search for and delete a few words of text from each page of a PDF? When I open a sample PDF in Acrobat, I can see that the text I want to delete is isolated in it's own bounding box, so I don't know...

Re: Converting Letter PDF to 11x17 PDF Booklet

In US sizing, a single 11x17" sheet in landscape is the same size as two letter size (8.5x11) portrait sheets placed side-by-side. I want to take two letter sized PDF pages and place them on a single 11x17 PDF page -- effectively merging two pages into one without scaling or resizing. Does that make...

Converting Letter PDF to 11x17 PDF Booklet

Is there any built-in way (or established sample code) to take a PDF of letter-sized pages and convert it to a PDF of 11x17 sized pages such that the 11x17 PDF will print as a booklet with staples down a center spine? So it's reordering the letter-sized pages and then combining them into 11x17" page...

Re: GdPicture Imaging SDK-to Cnvert MS-word/excel to PDF ?

Loic,

Is this feature (Word to PDF) still on the roadmap for your next release? It's something we are very interested in and would upgrade from v10 to get it.

Thanks,
Bryan

SaveToFile Produces A4 PDF from Letter Source

I have some particular PDF files which are producing unexpected results when saving. These PDFs were produced using another .Net library (Syncfusion DocIO) which takes an MS Word document and converts it to PDF. The resulting PDF looks fine and the document properties in Acrobat Reader show 8.5x11 (...

Re: Layer two PDf files

Thanks Loic. I did review the Reference Guides (honest!) looking for something like this but I must have missed it. Thanks again.

Layer two PDf files

Back into 2011 a similar question was asked here but I wanted to confirm that it was still not possible I want to take two PDF files, one base template that acts as a background layer and a second overlay and combine the two layers to produce a single pdf page. Is this still not possible? If not, is...

Re: GetPageTextArea seems not working

I have a similar need. I take dynamic text input from a user (via web form textarea) and then need to draw that text onto the PDF page. However, I then need to draw additional elements below the text, so I need to know how much height the DrawTextBox method used on the page. Additional ideas would b...

Re: isBlank yielding weird results

I understand this, but I guess my question is why this image is considered blank, no matter what confidence number I provide? Clearly the image is not blank, and if the Confidence value is supposed to adjust the sensitivity threshold, then why will no number provide a blank = true?

Thanks,
Bryan

isBlank yielding weird results

I was getting some unanticpiated results from the isBlank function from a larger console app that I had written, so I decided to do some testing using a very simple script (included below). The isBlank function was returning "true" for an image that was not blank and that I wanted to return not blan...

Resize image to bounding box and maintain aspect

Perhaps I am just not reading the docs enough, but I am having trouble finding a solution to my resize problem. I have to resize a set of images to fit within a specific set of dimensions (a bounding box). I don't which axis might need to be adjusted ahead of time (height or width). So, for example,...

Re: AutoDeskew actually making things worse

Ok, thanks for checking. I am almost on the latest version (just one minor rev back). I will update and play around with it a bit. I have quite a few other operations going on in the same code. Perhaps they are causing some issue as well. If I can continue to replicate this issue, I will post again....
