Program PDF with a crystal-clear view

While you’re making PDF files and an error occurs, tracing where the problem is located can be hard. That’s why iText has developed the pdfDebug add-on, which allows you to view your PDF file’s internal content structure, content streams and allows you to browse the document in a logical manner. It is a highly practical tool and currently the only one of its kind.

iText 7 pdfDebug: Key advantages

  • Only PDF programming debugging tool in the world

  • Integrated into your own development environment

  • Saves time by letting you catch and correct bugs quickly

  • Reflects the internal logic and structure of your documents

Integrated into your development tools

One of pdfDebug’s most conspicuous features is that you can make it a seamless part of your integrated development environment. With a clear debugging overview, you can quickly locate and fix bugs in your content streams or data structure right at the source without requiring frustrating and time-consuming searches.

The strength of structure

pdfDebug illuminates the advantages of creating PDFs with iText 7 – where most generic PDF tools only allow the creation of “flat” PDF files, iText 7 can embed rich content and metadata that makes using a debugging tool all the more rewarding. With a clear debugging overview, you can quickly locate and fix bugs in your content streams or data structure right at the source without requiring frus-trating and time-consuming searches.
