Hi Team.
Thanks for the reply to my previous mail.
I have a requirement in which I need to insert a new page to the 
document/Split doc/Add book marks etc., this needs to be done as per some 
rules - say I have a pdf document with 10 pages;
I need to do all the operations based on like - insert at 5th page from 
the beginning or add this to the last but one page or something similar. 
Is this possible, if so could you please send me a sample or some 
guidelines on how to achieve this?
I am using the .Net version. Thanks.

Fw: Functionality in PDFBOX

Hi Team,
Could someone please update me on my query below; We need to take some 
business decision on this. I am not able to find any relevant details to 
my questions anywhere and I do not want to upload in Jira on this issue, 
as I was advised that it was not the right platform for queries.
Any reply will be much appreciated.

Fw: Functionality in PDFBOX

I want a clarification. I have a requirement to merge the pdf documents, I 
managed to do that via PDFBox, but the question is can we merge the pdf 
files based on the bookmark or at the beginning of the file?
Also I know we can split the documents, but can this be done again based 
on bookmarks or taking into consideration some field value?
Also add bookmarks at relative position?
I have seen various issues in Jira and have searched the website, samples 
etc., but could not find anything specific for this tasks, your 
suggestions on this will be of great help.
We have some requirements based on this and need to decide on this at the 
earliest. Thanks.

[jira] [Resolved] (PDFBOX-1158) Functionality in PDFBOX



Jeremias Maerki resolved PDFBOX-1158.

    Resolution: Invalid

Please don't use JIRA to ask questions. Questions should be sent to 

1a. Apache PDFBox cannot directly create PostScript from PDF. But it 
supports painting PDF pages to Graphics2D objects. That means you can use 
the print function to print a PDF to a PostScript printer driver (set to 
output to a file if needed). Or you can use PSDocumentGraphics2D from 
Apache XML Graphics Commons to create PostScript files but the former is 
easier. http://pdfbox.apache.org/commandlineutilities/PrintPDF.html can 
serve as a starting point.

1b. Apache PDFBox cannot create PDF from PostScript because it lacks a 
complete PostScript interpreter to start with. You may need to look at 
GhostScript for that functionality (available under the GPL or a 
commercial license). GhostScript can do PDF->PS, too.

2. See http://pdfbox.apache.org/commandlineutilities/PDFMerger.html

Any follow-up questions to users@pdfbox.apache.org, please.
