Hi, I am trying to export PDF using iText. I am having difficulties in setting up the line width for the header and footer. I am creating objects of PDFTemplate, it draws up the line, but when i make the zoom to 100% I see that the Header line is thicker than the Footer line.
Not sure how iText manages the line thickness. Even i tried setting up the setLineWidth() method, but no use. Any help is much appreciated.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
