    Without seeing your code, we can only guess at answers. Which is a waste of time for both us and you. Can you please post a _short_ program which exhibits this behaviour.

    You do have "use PDF::API2" in your code don't you?

    Hi. Try this: use PDF::API2::Win32
      Thanks for the response. Here is the code.
      use PDF::API2::Win32; $pdf = PDF::API2::Win32->new; $fnt = $pdf->corefont('Helvetica-Bold'); $page = $pdf->page; $page->mediabox('A4'); $gfx = $page->gfx; $gfx->textlabel(200,700,$fnt,20,'Hello World !'); $pdf->saveas('/this/new/document.pdf'); $pdf->end;
      Thanks. leela

      Edited (davorg): added code tags

        Did you read the PDF::API2 documentation? If you did, then why are you doing this:
        use PDF::API2::Win32; $pdf = PDF::API2::Win32->new;
        when the docs say to do this:
        use PDF::API2; $pdf = PDF::API2->new; $fnt = $pdf->corefont('Helvetica-Bold'); $page = $pdf->page; $page->mediabox('A4'); $gfx = $page->gfx; $gfx->textlabel(200,700,$fnt,20,'Hello World !'); $pdf->saveas('/this/new/document.pdf'); $pdf->end;
