1) Documaker can import and convert PDF files to sections.
2) Depends on what format that signature really is in.
-What version of Documaker are you running?
-What tool or how are you getting the data out of the pdf?
We are running 11.5 patch 2 (working on upgrading to patch 4 in near future).
In asking, it was explained to me that they "think" the signature is saved as a bitmap, and then converted to Binary format, and that binary value is what is sent in the XML.
To my knowledge, there is no rule (or DAL) that can take data meant for a bitmap from XML or any extract directly. You can add bitmaps from disk dynamically, but not directly from data being fed in.
Now, you could take the original PDF (if you have it) and simply turn the whole thing into bitmap pages to add to your transaction document. This is accomplished via the AddMultiPageBitmap rule.
Does anybody know, is there a format of data that CAN be passed in via XML to dynamically generate an image (in this case, signature)? Or is Documaker only able to reference existing images and pull them in?
Perhaps if you will submit a couple examples of the XML you are receiving along with the original PDF (so we can see what the graphic looks like), perhaps someone can offer a suggestion. Depending upon how the bitmap data is stored (compress, compact, RLE, encrypted, etc.) it might be possible to offer some suggestion.
