Hello Experts,

I need to convert existing text file into PDF programatically. I'm using basic iText APIs to do this task. However; the converted PDF looses all the formatting applied in a text file (such as indenting, page breaks etc).

Is there any example or solution so that I get exact same file converted into PDF along with the formatting? Thanks for your help.

Well, the iText example pages have a lot of examples on how to format it according to your needs.
See @ http://itextdocs.lowagie.com/tutorial/
You'll have to set those tabs and page breaks yourself.
