PDF Generation


I have a client who needs to convert MS Word docs to PDFs :o . The only requirement for manipulation is to add the username & date into the PDF header upon download/generation.

I know that PDF generation is the bane of most developers, but has anyone been down this road, using Yii, and found a decent solution?

I’m currently am using Zend_liveDocX and it works rather well. The only issue is that is sends the data across the wire using SOAP and this client needs a completely secure/private method.



I have used this extension with some success but only by pulling data from a database, not with a file.

I’d be interested to know your solution.


Not Sure, but using Zend_PDF was very easy to me to edit a PDF file, it was a form that I filled with user submitted data.
