PDF creation (Amyuni gone?)

Post by Ckral » Mon Feb 16, 2009 11:00 am

Is the Amyuni PDF creator no longer available from the epoline website? If so, are there any recommendations regarding alternative software - open source software would be nice - to create the files for EOLFV4? I want to avoid buying full versions of acrobat for the clerks for cost reasons also said package is somewhat out of scale just for creating PDFs.
Any experience with ghostscript driven software like Bullzip?

Please contact the procedural and technical support who would
help you acquire the Amyuni PDF converter software. For licensing
reasons, we are unable to make directly available from our website.

You could also try the following.

However, as Dirk mentions keep in mind that there may be a rights issue when using free software.

In my experience there are several reasons to use either Amyuni or Acrobat compared to the many free PDF tools available out there, most of them are compatibility related. E.g. we recently had an application with a lot of mathematical formulas and not a single tool (e.g. Bullzip, DoPdf, FreePdf, Foxit, etc.) managed to create a 100% version from the original Winword document (created with Mathtype, btw.), only Amyuni and Acrobat 10 delivered a valid result.
Despite not being the most complex tool, I really recommend using Amyuni if you do not want to shell out the money for the Adobe program.

Also I found a nice link on the Adobe forum - originally filing with the USPTO - which is also helpful when filing with the EPO:

There is still a fair bit of scope for improvement with regard to the WIPO standard in this regard, e.g. it could be made mandatory to only use a fully opensource font typeface, of which there are now actually more than a few, or in a similar manner, use CML/MathML for chemical and maths representations to avoid the need to rely on proprietary, closed source or mono-OS solutions. Unfortunately, the EPO does not appear to push this aspect enough with either its partner offices in the standards development process or its software solution providers.

Embedding fonts with Adobe only works if the font is licensed for embedding and subsetting, otherwise the glyphs are substituted or even refused, which can naturally be problematic when trying to create the PDF.
