Version 1.18 of the ReportLab Toolkit has been released. This release will be the last to attempt to keep compatibility with Python 1.52 - 2.1. We will allow 2.2 specific features into the code in future. There will be a branch called ReportLab_1_18_PRE22. So that enthusiasts can maintain it if required. Main changes since ReportLab 1.18: - Bug & leak fixes. - improvements to pyRXP which can now be used in 16bit mode.

I did this once and can't remember how <blush> so I read the reportlab user guid. It says to unzip the reportlab archive - this is on w2k, BTW, with Python23 - to a directory and make a file called reportlab.pth in the pythod dir. The only line in this file is supposed to be the path to the reportlib dir. Then I'm instructed to open the ... ok I'll close and reopen ... the python cmd line interpreter and type import reportlab

Hi, I've been using pdflatex to dump ranges of pages from a PDF file via Python. However, I was looking at the Reportlab toolkit and was wondering if this operation would be possible using this toolkit as well. Admittedly, I have'nt read the documentation in detail, but I was wondering if anybody could provide any pointers to extracting pages from a PDF via Python without using pdflatex Thanks, Rajarshi

hi, i'm working with reportlab since a couple of weeks and i managed to create quite nice pdfs... there is a little problem though. since i have to create english and russian content, i use the utf8 support of registered ttf's. the only thing is that it does not support the justify-alignment in paragraph flowables! is there a way to fix that?

I have been trying all day to get this to work. My complete code is below. I can get my text into the PDF, I can get my image in the PDF. What I can't get to work is frames so that the image (logo) appears to the right of the text. The image always appears first and then the text below on the next line. Please help. Chuck

I need to create multi lingual invoices from reportlab. I think it is possible to use UTF 8 strings but there is a problem with the font. I could not find any free TTF font that can do latin1, latin2, arabic, chinese and other languages at the same time. Is there a single font that is able to handle these languages? (Most of our invoices will be for EN, FR, DE, HU, SK, CZ, RO but some of them needs to be in Chinese.) Thanks, Laszlo

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
