Creating PDFs – Graham Pitson and Richard King

Richard and Graham both output their Delphi reports in PDF. They gave us some hints and told us the relative merits of the tools they use. Graham started on PDFs first using “PDF Tool Kit” from http://www.ActivePDF.com while Richard started later and uses “Quick PDF”. Graham was aware of the merits of both products but persisted with the earlier “Active PDF” product as it supports serialization.

With Quick PDF it seems the supplier only collects the money and you need to rely on the very active Fan Club at http://www.QuickPdf.org for support.

The meeting then degenerated in to an interesting discussion on PDF features and Don’s FogBugz presentation was deferred to a later date.
