Is there currently a way to view XFA PDF's or do you have a work around? I tested in out in your demo and I get message in the attached screen shot. If I open the document in adobe reader it opens just fine. The attached Sales invoice is an example of the XFA format.

With introducing the first version of PDF 2.0 as ISO-32000-2 published in May 2017, XFA has been officially excluded from this specification, the same as it has not been standardized in any public specification. Therefore this format is not supported by GdPicturePDF, and we will never support it in the future as well. Please note that you may encounter potential rendering problems when viewing a PDF document with XFA forms using GdPicturePDF. Probably you will see this fallback message introduced by Adobe: "If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper content of the document, your PDF viewer may not be able to display this type of document."
