Subject [jira] Created: (PDFBOX-678) Support missing Text Rendering Modes when rendering a PDF

Support missing Text Rendering Modes when rendering a PDF
---------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: PDFBOX-678
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-678
             Project: PDFBox
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: PDFReader
            Reporter: Maruan Sahyoun


Of the 7 different Text Rendering Modes only mode 0 (Fill Text) is correctly implemented.
Mode 1 (Stroke Text) falls back to Mode 0 and the others are not implemented. I'm looking
to implement the missing modes (at least some of them).

Before doing so I'm proposing a structural change to when rendering really occurs. Currently
it's done within the PDxxxFont classes. I'd rather implement the (AWT) text output in PageDrawer
(or helper classes within the same package) and use the font classes to return an AWT font
by adding a getAwtFont method. Doing so we get a better separation between the PDF related
stuff (PDxxx) and applications like PageDrawer. The current rendering specific code within
the PDxxxFont classes can be retained for compatibility and marked deprecated at a later stage.

WDYT?
