PDF export question

ccoreggioli
Hi all,

when exporting info macros or warning macros to PDF, these components aren't rendered as they are in browser, in facts the box edge, the background color and the related icons aren't printed in resulting pdf document. In this way, the will of highlighting some text isn't ported to the pdf (and rtf) export.

is this a bug or simply this feature haven't been developed yet?

i'm testing XE 2.5M2 on Centos 5 64bit, tomcat 6.0.26 and jdk 1.6.0_20. IE7 on client side.

thanks,
claudio

Please, have you checked this?

I'm not able yet of telling you if this is a bug or it is simple not
supported with the current export architecture. Print preview does its
job without a glitch, the rendered page is ok. So, I only find one option:

The pdf*.vm templates out strip these macro layouts and we do need
another customized template/templates to get them rendered with the
current architecture.

But I don't know yet what changes are required. Any idea will be welcome!

The new architecture will solve this issue!
