Debugging your PDFs as you make them - for free

Tags: iText 7pdfDebugdebugopen source

While you’re making PDF files and an error occurs, tracing where the problem is can be hard. That’s why we have developed the pdfDebug add-on for iText 7. It allows you to view your PDF file’s internal content structure, content streams and allows you to browse the document in a logical manner – as it is being created. This practical tool is the first of its kind for PDF.

What's even better: We're offering the add-on free of charge through the Eclipse Marketplace so you can see how useful it is for yourself. pdfDebug is currently compatible with Eclipse Neon (4.6), Mars (4.5), Luna (4.4), Kepler (4.3), Juno (4.2, 3.8).
