We have worked hard to develop the production of PDF documents from XML—and are proud to now offer PDF documents with moderate complexity in design. Our specialty is designing and producing one-off scientific and technical reports that combine graphics and tables with text.
With a wide range of fonts, colours and borders achievable for text, tables and graphics, we can produce documents that match your branding—so you get stylish-looking, readable documents. We are continually refining the production of complex document structures, which can include any combination of:
- title page
- imprint page
- automatically generated table of contents, and lists of figures, tables and boxes
- acknowledgements, preface and other preliminary matter
- chapters (optional chapter table of contents)—multi-column* with running headers and footers, and section-level headings
- glossary and acronyms
- reference list
- index (two-column).
* Note: Multi-column text, when used with more complex imposition of single-column and multi-column graphics and tables, can create unwanted whitespace. Improvements to this page layout are still a little way off—but we're striving to achieve complex design as soon as possible!
A wide range of page layouts is possible—like True Type and Open Type fonts, bulleted (symbolised) and numbered lists, table layouts (borders and background colours), chapter and section heading styles (borders and background colours), and sidebars (e.g. pull quotes).
