Hi.
I have been creating some manuals with OO2 and am dissapointed the PDF writer has not been fixed from 1.?.
The pdf's are still created using eps preview images and not the eps code. A poor preview resultys in a poor PDF, the advantages of inserting diagrams as vector eps's is lost.
I seem still to need to print to pdf and use ps2pdf.
An alternate would be to print to kprinter and use the pdf option, but I don't seem to be able to add kprinter as a printer.

Try pdfCREATOR (from the OpenCD)-- I have used it for programs lacking that facility and am very pleased with the results.

Here is the link:

Not sure on the method PDFCreator uses to create files, I haven't really delved into the mechanics of PDF creation.

I do find the results from it good though Smile

Here's a link direct to the project:
