Are these PDFs created by you with LiveCode, or coming from other unknown
or varying programs?  Is is all text, or a mixture of content?

A PDF built to the older PDF-1.4 spec, is fairly simple to construct from
scratch using just text.  Example: Paste the following into notepad, and
save it.  Change the extension to .pdf.  MediaBox is the page size in
points (Points are roughly 1/72 of an inch).  All measurements are in
points.
