I am not always happy with the quality if I create a PDF directly from the contents of the Clipboard. Is there something I need to consider to get better richtext2pdf results?
I assume that you use the portable PDF Reader. That reader contains a stripped down version of the rtf2pdf engine. The quality is not always perfect then. But we need to do that to keep the footprint small.
You get better results if you install the Aloaha PDF Suite (even the freeware Version). It contains a better rtf2pdf engine and the portable PDF Viewer will use that when the PDF Suite is installed.
Although we really tried hard, there are always questions left open. But perhaps somebody else had already put the same question? Please check!
Is it possible to use Aloaha as PDF mailer?
Of course. If you click on "File" -> "Outlook Mail" Aloaha will automatically a new Outlook mail with the current PDF document attached.
Can I use the Aloaha PDF Reader to add a file attachment to an existing PDF document?
Of course. You can either add an attachment globally to the document with "Document" -> "Insert File Attachment".
If you want to add an attachment on a specific page just right click on the page and then choose "Insert File Attachment"
How can I convert an image file (bmp, jpg, tiff, png, wmf, emf, etc) to PDF?
There are several ways. With the Aloaha PDF Viewer you can open bmp, jpg, png, wmf, emf, tif and fax documents directly. The Reader will convert the files to PDF and open them.
Another way is to open an existing PDF and choose "Edit" -> "Insert Document". You can insert any of the above formats since Aloaha will automatically convert them to PDF while inserting into the PDF.
How do I remove a page from my PDF Document without having to install any software?
The Aloaha PDF Reader does not need to be installed since it is a portable application. To remove a page from an existing document just open the document in the Aloaha PDF Reader. Then right click on the page in the preview pane and choose edit -> delete.
Another way is just to press the "delete" key on the keyboard and the active page will be deleted from the PDF document.
Is it possible to save a PDF as exe file so I can distribute it incl. the required PDF Reader?
Yes, it is possible. You can just load a PDF document into the Aloaha PDF Reader and then choose File -> Save as Application. The Aloaha PDF Viewer will then embedd the PDF document into the exe and save it under a new name.
I am interested in the rtf2pdf and txt2pdf functionality. Which product or SDK do I have to purchase to use those APIs?
