Servoy PDF Pro Plug-In

PDF Pro Plug-In

The PDF Pro plug-in adds many features that are not available in the pdf_output plug-in that ships with Servoy. In order for the PDF Pro plug-in to function, it is required that the pdf_output plugin also be installed (free option in the Servoy Installer). The PDF Pro plug-in depends on the iText and Multivalent Tools java libraries, which are open-source and distributed under separate licenses. Both of those java libraries should already be installed after installing both the PDF Output plug-in, and the PDF Pro plug-in.

12/15/2008: Updated for to support Servoy version 4.0.  Added option to watermark so you can specify an array of pages to be watermarked.  This is useful if you want to add scanned signatures to your document.
