[REBOL] PDF maker questions

From: kpeters:otaksoft at: 7-Aug-2007 19:12

PDF maker's docs state that an offset can be added - I have added it as I understand it. Not only does it not work this way - the entire PDF built is now empty. It seems to me that PDF maker generates empty PDFs at best as soon as it runs into problems. Questions I have: 1) Is that a valid assessment? 2) How then do I specify an offset properly? 3) Is there a way to make PDF maker verbose with regards to parsing problems? 4) The code below produces a PDF with one line only (the first one). What am I doing wrong here? TIA, Kai build-page: func[ record [block!]][ [ ; page must be a block page size 216 279 offset 10 10 textbox [ LEFT ALIGN "Staff member: #" (record/r_staffid) (record/r_staffname) newline "Client: #" (record/r_clid) (record/r_clname) newline ] ] ] print-screenshot: [ ss-record: compose [ r_clid (sf-clientid/text) r_clname (sf-clientname/text) r_staffid (staffnumber/text) r_staffname (staffname/text) ] document: make block! 1 page: compose/deep build-page ss-record append/only document page probe document write/binary %TimesheetScreenshot.pdf layout-pdf document ]
