How PDFs Render Text
It is important for creative professionals to understand how a PDF renders text for graphic arts workflows . A PDF contains commands to move to a location and draw a character. Although a PDF contains the character width so that it can know where to draw the next character, a space character may be missing from the text stream. After a word has been drawn, the next command, in this case, will be to move a bit to the right to draw the first character of the next word. Determining what to do with this “gap” in the text drawings can result in a problem. PDF2DTP performs several calculations to best handle the “gap” by inserting a Space character, applying tracking (a form of letter-spacing), inserting a Tab in a large spatial distance, or etc.

Underlined Text in PDFs
Creative professionals can have graphic design problems with text that was underlined in the original document. The PDF will draw a word and then draw a line underneath. PDF2DTP will apply the Underline attribute to the text when it detects this situation. Otherwise, a line object will be created. Underlines are set using the default line offset and width, so a Character Style for the Underline will be conveniently created for easy adjustment of settings.
