An additional note on the ptfs - the doc of recommended fixes, some
recommended such as
SI53679 are product 5770SS1 (not all are 5770TS1 ptfs) - look in the
description column for "i5/OS PDF Transform Services"

Dean,

This page - Recommended Fixes for Print for 7.1
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas1fc479ff051ff98378625779000
6380e3
lists several 5770TS1 fixes since the function released.

Also, I have seen many instances where IBM transform functions do odd things
when the page size is odd - 13.19 ... try 14.0 x 11 on your printer file
(and verify ptfs) and see if same results.

Interesting. I would not have expected the difference.

Hi,

This is my first attempt at creating a PDF directly from an IBM i spool
file. I first ran my process to create the spool file like normal and then
I used the CPYSPLF command to create the PDF on the IFS. When I did this,
the PDF was created using the CourierStd font and it filled the page. The
page size was 13.19 x 11.0 in. It looked good. So, I used the OVRPRTF
command to direct the report directly to a PDF. When I did this, it used
ArialMT and TimesNewRomanPSMT. The page size was 14 x 11 and the text only
filled 3.6 inches of the page width. It looks tiny on the page.

So, how do you control the font and font size that it uses to create the
PDF? Do the properties of the printer file control anything?
