Now, I get it! Thanks. It seems as I suspected: The problems probably come from the tables. If you are on Unix, try Acrobat Reader 4.05 on the command-line (-toPostScript and friends) to generate PostScript from PDF and print it via LPR. If you are on Windows, try the command-line options of

I'm not sure I understood everything. The FO is normally built using XSLT. And if it's done right, there's really no need to save the FO to a temporary file. Instead FOP can use SAX output events from the XSL transformation as direct input. Where have you seen this? So if you want to have an FO

Tony You've probably added an embed-file attribute in the user config file. This embeds the font in the PDF. Just remove it and your PDF should shrink again. Not embedding a font means that the viewer of the PDF will have to have the particular font installed on his system. But why do you go

After looking closer at your mail, when Jörg replied, I realized what's wrong. Bhawana, you're using the CVS version (main branch) of FOP which is currently in a redesign phase. That version is not intended to be used, yet. FOP 0.20.x does not have any LayoutManagers. I suggest you download a

Everything on fonts is on the following page: http://xml.apache.org/fop/fonts.html Sometimes the metric files need some tweaking, especially for Type 1 fonts, but that requires reading into the font specs. I'm still quite sure you're making yourself a hard time with little profit. Good luck.

You have to specify your user-config file. Look at the javadocs of org.apache.cocoon.serialization.FOPSerializer. From the javadocs... * The use of a config file for FOP is enabled by adding a configuration * element to the serializer in the sitemap. * user-config

Removing the embed-font attribute results in an error. Removing the entire font tag is making the Serializer ignore the font altogether, thus embedding default font. Not embed-font, embed-file! And what error? What does your userconfig.xml look like? Don't remove the metrics-file attribute.

Have a look at the javadocs of org.xml.sax.InputSource. It will tell you that a String parameter in the constructor is a SystemID which corresponds more or less to a URL. So if you specify a relative path it's resolved by applying the base URL. And that's why it worked. I'd use: new
