Two Pilots forum / Converters / how to set PDF resolution
Author Message
# Posted: 11 Jan 2010 10:24

using HTML2PDF 2.16.95 and making tests with SVG, EMF and other file formats I noticed that something really must be wrong...
I think it's caused by the converter by downsampling all images to a low resolution (maybe 96 dpi) even if the html file has high resolution images.

So is there a way to set the PDF resolution (dpi) in the preferences panel and the command line?

Thank you

There is no way. As HTML2PDF Pilot uses IE engine to get EMF the resolution of this EMF will olways be 96 dpi. Thats why all content gets rendered in 96 dpi.
If you want to get more functionality you may download PDF Creator Pilot and HTML2PDF Add-on and try them. There you'll be able to set any dpi you want.

Well... I'll give a little background of my tool that might help...

I've a small search utility that searches for all file types using Microsoft Windows Desktop Search (WDS). That is, I use WDS as the search engine for my utility.. So whenever user tries to search using my utility, I query WDS to retrieve the file paths of files in which the search phrase is found. The issue is WDS doesn't perform a case-sensitive search. So to achieve case-sensitive search, I'll have to read the contents of files returned by WDS and see if there is a case-sensitive match. So for this purpose, I want to be able to read the pdf file contents from code.

Well, actually PDF Creator Pilot may read PDF content. But there are few moments:
1) reading all text in a 1000 pages PDF file will take long time
2) the text in PDF document not always is a text. Sometimes it is a set of indexes of some special fonts, so while drawing the text will look good, but inside the PDF this text may be stored as a set of unreadable bytes.
