Great, thank you!
And is it possible the other way round? I.e. I know the target rect and
I have to export a single line exactly into that rect? (The text has to
be scaled to fill the rect.)
Why I ask: I need to print my PDFs directly from a Lazarus application.
I have to render the page on a canvas (monitor for preview, printer for
printing) and create a PDF from the same source. All three targets
(monitor, printer, PDF) have to be exactly equal.
I achieved this in Delphi with Synopse PDF. Now I'd like to port my
reporting solution to Lazarus.
