Different PDF converter/convert through Word
We are having a lot differences between the Word output and that generated by Windward PDF. Spacing can be different and sometimes the PDF does things wrong that Word does correctly, such as text going through a footer or the PDF not breaking the page correctly when using Keep with Next. It seems to me a lot of defelopment time goes into trying to make the PDF output better.
In literally every instant, the PDF from Word's Export feature worked correctly. Also, the output is half the file size, which is also very important for us.
A lot of our issues would be solved if we could just have Windward generate through Word's Export to PDF feature. Or perhaps another commercial PDF converter.
Perhaps you can benefit from Windward’s “Use Office for PDF Output” functionality, this sounds like the functionality you described. Please see this Ohana article on how you can setup the Windward Engine to use Microsoft Office’s native PDF export functionality for PDF output: https://ohana.windwardstudios.com/m/76878/l/1178439-how-do-i-use-microsoft-office-to-generate-pdf-output-in-report-designer
Please let me know if this solution works for you, or expand on your request if I misunderstood it. Thank you.
We also would like to be able to use another external PDF printer, since WindWard PDF printer has some limitations that we can find in other PDF printers.
