Converting PCL to Raster PDF using PCLTool SDK

Converting PCL to Raster PDF

Question:  What options are available when converting PCL to Raster PDF?

Answer:  There are two options specific to converting PCL to raster PDF.  They are available in the upper left corner of the PDF Preferences Dialog box.

Converting PCL to Raster PDF

PDF Preferences Dialog

1.  Remove Margins

This option applies only when you convert to a raster PDF.  By default, when the PCL page image is converted into a PDF raster page, we remove the margins set in the PCL.  We do this because when the Reader prints the PDF page, it adds its own margin settings.  When the pages are viewed in the Reader, they will look like they may have had the left margin clipped.  However, when they print will look exactly like the original PCL.  In cases where this does not happen, turn off this option.  There are several other ways to adjust the viewable and printable areas:  Custom Paper Size, Calibration Scaling or Offsets and Adjusting the Resolution.

2.  Text Overlay

Select this option to add text found in PCL for a text-searchable layer beneath the raster images of each page.
