missing line space in Text field while merging multiple PDF's using PDFCopy of IText

Hi,

I am using IText to fill the values in Designer created PDF using IText AcroFields along with this I am using PDFCopy of Itext to merge the same pdf file for 3 times with different data. The issue is I am having text field in the pdf where it will accept multiple lines and I had given 8 inches as the line spacing between the lines. When i create a single pdf( i.e. filling values in the form and creating a new file) the line spacing is the same as what I had given but when I try to merge the three files the line spacing in the Text Field is getting increased and my data is over flowing. I am merging the files using PDFCopy.

My code will looks like the following




Could any one please tell me what is the reason for increasing line space between the lines in Text fields


Thanks
Shiv

Hi Shiva and welcome to Javaranch!

Is the PDFCopy a separate tool?

Hi Martijn,

PDFCopy is not a tool. It is a class in IText API. I debugged the issue and found the reason for line space. It is because of turning on PDFStamper and not the PDFCopy. FormFlattening to true. When i turn of the formFlattening the line spacing is appeairing. But not able to find the solution

Thanks,
Shiva

Hi Shiva,

Hmmm, sounds like a tricky internal API issue, have you tried on the iText/JasperReports forums?
