Hello,

Iam using "ezpdf" for creating pdf doc.
here is the url.

on the second page i use the base class function "addTextWrap" for writing rotated text.
but this does not maintain the text formatting such as line breaks,

there is a function  
function ezProcessText($text){
  // this function will intially be used to implement underlining support, but could be used for a range of other
  // purposes
  $search = array('<u>','<U>','</u>','</U>');
  $replace = array('<c:uline>','<c:uline>','</c:uline>','</c:uline>');
  return str_replace($search,$replace,$text);
}

which i think is used for underlining text in pdf format..

so is there any tag like <c:uline> for line breaks in PDF?

I would imagine pdf's recognise the \n as new line so try

function ezProcessText($text){
  // this function will intially be used to implement underlining support, but could be used for a range of other
  // purposes
  $search = array('<u>','<U>','</u>','</U>');
  $replace = array('<c:uline>','<c:uline>','</c:uline>','</c:uline>');
  $text = str_replace($search,$replace,$text);
  $text = str_replace("<br>","\n",$text);
  return $text;
}

not 100% sure on that one

Not that i am aware of if \n does not work.

I have just had a quick look through the class file, prehaps you can work around the problem by using effective paragraphing, that is to say making multiple calls to the function that adds text to the pdf, ezText. I haven't looked at this package before today so whether or not this is feasible i cannot say for sure, prehaps the folks in the Acrobat Reader TA would be able to shed some light on how PDF's handles line breaks.
