Make Appended PDF files

Post by dburnham » Sat Nov 11, 2017 3:43 pm

I have a FileMaker database that is being deployed for iOS users on iPads. FileMaker Go cannot make PDF files that result from appending one PDF output to an existing PDF file. Thus, I cannot create a report that includes results from more than one layout, found set, etc.

I would like to know if LiveCode can solve this problem. It would perform the same Save-as-PDF script step that now exists, but it would provide the ability to append to a PDF document that already exists.

If there is a price to pay for this feature, please tell me. I will pay it.

I suppose this depends on what sort of PDF document you are dealing with.

IF I were dealing with appending text to a text-only PDF I would import the initial PDF file as text,
append the extra text and then export as a PDF.
