It claims some support in the documentation, but after much experimentation, I verified it does not. That is why I switched to TCPDF. > What you're asking sounds like you want to *edit* an existing PDF via a > PHP class, No, I just want to write on top of it. And that was possible with FPDI/FPDF, but I had to abandon those as they did not support Japanese. I attempted to use the same functions as FPDI/FPDF, but they did not work in TCPDF. > have a look in the archive of this list. there is a topic "writing japanese > test in an excisting pdf" its of 31. of August, this should help > That was a thread I started. Things have changed slightly since I now know that only TCPDF supports Japanese. So I still need to know if/how to write text into a PDF, like I did with FPDF, but with TCPDF instead. If this turns out to not be possible, I am going to be suffering a great deal. -- Dave M G -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
