Hi there,

I'm trying to get my
PDF documents to display correctly. The documents consist of a combination of
images and text. I've been playing around with the plugins but I still can't
get the correct output.

These are the plugin
configuration steps I've taken:

i) PDFPlugin
-convert_to pagedimg_jpg

I get the messages 'The file journal.rpt.xxxxx.pdf
was recognised but could not be processed by any plugin' for almost all of my
files. The same thing happens when I use pagedimg_gif and pagedimg_png


ii) PDFPlugin
-convert_to html

No images appear and
the text is all mixed up.(I think this happens bse the original PDF document
has text in columnar format)


iii) PDFPlugin
-convert_to auto -complex
Only the images get
extracted nicely but the text doesn't appear

Is there something
that I must (or musn't) do?

Regards,
Sarah
