Now that I've calmed down a *little*, I'm doing a little more thorough research here. I already tried googling last night, but it wasn't sinking in much at that point. Fresh eyes help.

Running perl -V produces the exact same output on both servers. Server #1:

I'm doing more detailed troubleshooting and figured out that if my input text contains font tags (as specified in the PDF::TextBlock documentation) AND spaces, then I get the stated error when I $tb->apply;...even if the $t1 is hard-coded instead of a variable.

$t1=($two->{OwnerName}); #works $t1='<b>'.($two->{OwnerName}).'</b>'; #doesn't work $t1="longer font that uses spaces but should still wrap in the small b +ox";#works $t1="<b>longer font that uses spaces but should still wrap in the smal +l box<b>";#doesn't work $t1='test test'; #works $t1='<b>test test</b>'; #doesn't work $t1="<b>test test</b>"; #doesn't work $t1='test'; #works $t1='<b>test<b>'; #works $tb->text($t1); ($endw1, $ypos1, $overflow1)=$tb->apply;

I suspect this may be related to this PDF::TextBlock reported bug??? I already figured out that \n within font tags break the tag so the font isn't used.
