Non PDF source in DDX


Level 2


I"m trying to assemble a portfolio where the source files are not pdf.  Which ddx tag could I use to achieve this?

I found the following ddx script, not sure if it will or will not work, but I need to provide this script with the actual file (document variable) and not a path to the file path.

<File filename="saint_bernard.jpg" mimetype="image/jpeg"/>

I may be mistaken, but I believe that Assembler will attempt to call the appropriate conversion utility to turn your file into a PDF before it does the assembly (toImage2 in this case).

You can use the document variable type to hold a non-pdf file.  That document variable would be passed to invokePDF using the properties screen as you would a "normal" PDF.
