Is it possible to add a table to a footer of a PDF?
We are evaluating Aspose Total for processing of PDFs for our organization and one of our groups likes to “Stamp” the bottom of documents on every page with a table that is 2 columns wide and has three rows with various content related to the document and dates.
I am able to create a footer and add a stamp to the document which works like a charm, but when I try and add a table in a similar manner it never appears.
The code I am doing seems to produce the table fine when I create a new document, add a paragraph and then add the table to the paragraph, but we would need to do this on existing documents.
So there are a variety of related questions.
- Can a table be added to a footer?
- Can a table be added as a Stamp at the bottom of the page?
- Is it possible to Insert a paragraph at the bottom of every page of an existing document?
From my testing, I do not think #3 is possible which kind of makes sense, but would like to confirm, I believe this is while even though I may be able to specify the position, it is hard for the application to know how to deal with any of the content that would been to be shifted, Adding this content to the bottom of every pages would likely cause a document to increase in size, for example, a 20 page document may be 28 pages with this bottom section added to every page.
To work around this, I am trying to get our group to flatten this content into a single line which I think I should be able to apply as a stamp, but would like to be able to do so with some formatting like borders on cells so it appears like a table, so either doing as a table in the footer, or having a stamp that had multiple cells will work.
