We can install doPDF, Foxit Reader and similar to installing a virtual pdf printer instead of printing on paper going into pdf files with which they should be doing later

It's not the right solution to this problem but can help

PDFcreator can also do the same thing. But this requires some installation and selection of virtual printer in the system while printing.

If we can incorporate GhostScript inside HMG may be we can go for native PDF making. HaruPDF is not rendering great when it comes to Unicode.
East or West HMG is the Best.
South or North HMG is worth.
...the possibilities are endless.

That would be great. Right now, even CutePDF also uses the same technique and the PDF so generated are good.

Warm regards,

To create PDF files in my older Clipper code i used GhostPCL to convert PCL printer output to PDF.

Maybe a start ?

Hi Friends:

I don't experiment with HaruPdf and Unicode.-
Although, HaruPdf implemented on HMGHPDF, is the best tool to get high quality pdf documents.-
The same effort anybody makes to define print data on Hmg Printsystem you can apply do define any type of complex PDF output with HmgHpdf.-
In my case, all print output are defined to generate a PDF file under HMGHPDF.-
About this, thanks ever to Rathi who developes this powerfull tool.- By the way works fine on all Hmg Versions.-
Now i'll test what happens with Unicode definitions.-
With regards.
Eduardo

Yes, the Unicode definitions are still erroneous !
Would be perfect if this work as it should!

Did you find the time to find a alternative solution for the export module in the report module? I would we great if we could fix this nasty bug.
If not, no problem but is it possible to remove the PDF functionality completely in the next HMG release ? Otherwise end users will continue to try saving the output to a PDF with the nasty error 'image cannot be loaded' as an result.
