    Pdf generation

    Hi all im using ckeditor to write docs which are then stored in the DB. I then have a page where the document can be used (database outputted to php page) and I have a link on this page to download a PDF.

    Im currently using TCPDF but am having problems with tables. There is no padding on the tables and they dont seem to be the correct width. Is this a common prob when creating pdf files? is there a workaround? thanks

    There's a couple of solutions for you. One that you might want to try is Anything2PDF API which is available through The Easy API

    You could also try: HTML2PDF

    There's a paid version which I really like and it's named: ABCPdf it's really pricey ($325 per server) but the output is phenomenal.

    Either way you choose you will probably need to do some modifications to your page to make it work just right.

    Take care,
