When drawing a 600 DPI picture in a area, I see people getting a 72DPI garbage result. I couldn’t find in the manual how to set the resolution to the usual standards 150, 300 and 600 DPI. Am I missing something or is it an incomplete feature? Still a WIP, or the manual is not clear, or am I being myopic here?
This recent thread has a response from
@Javier_Menendez that may prove useful:
My program generates an invoice as a pdf. The problem I’m having is I want to have a header image at the top but the resolution of the image in the pdf is low. Is there a way to sharpen the image? I have tried setting pic.horizontalresolution and pic.verticalresolution to 300 but it still comes out low res on the pdf.
No, really not useful. It ended without a solution, the version at that time presented the same defects, missing feature and people had no solution.
But there was a Feedback Case included in the discussion that you can sign on to and follow:
Eight months old, not implemented yet.
You can use our MBS DynaPDF plugin instead of the built-in class.
We can do higher dpi, jpeg pass through, preserve or convert color spaces and later optimize images.
Well… but it won’t be a solution for “How to set Xojo’s PDF resolution”
But right now I know it’s a very
basic missing feature that we do not have it working yet but we have an old report for it we can track. [ https://xojo.com/issue/63039]( https://xojo.com/issue/63039)
Thanks for the info, Anthony.
