Possible, yes. Easy, no. There is no native method in Tier 1, you'd have to make your own pdf writer.

The pdf format documentation is an absolute beast to try to read through...

ITextSharp is a PDF library for .net
You could use it to develop a Plugin or maybe petition some of the Guru's here to help you do that

Maybe I'm wrong, but if you are doing a desktop application could check this thread https://forum.thegamecreators.com/thread/217417

And try this https://www.appgamekit.com/documentation/Reference/Image/PrintImage.htm



I hope helps you

@blueFire, if its something you really need I could write you a windows plugin to write PDF files on a low level scale, I have a PDF lib I can convert to plugin format but its a hell ass lot of work with 100's of functions to wrap it certainly would not be free.

your free to PM me to discuss.

Oh I'm well aware, I attempted to make a reader in Java once. Decided to quit before I even started after looking at the format.
