I am trying to insert a logo (gif file) dynamically at the top of each page outputting to a  pdf report, using CFDocument & CFDocumentitem.
In Coldfusion 7 the image is huge and in Coldfusion 8 is it tiny.

If I put it outside of the CFDocumentitem tag  it displays perfectly.

What can I do to fix this.???
Its driving me mad.###%%%





<cfdocument format="PDF" orientation="portrait"  pagetype="a4" marginleft="0.1058" marginright="0.1058"  unit="cm" fontembed="yes">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="../../css/print.css" type="text/css" media="print" />
<cfdocumentitem type="header">
	<img src="../../Images/PT_Banner.gif" />
  </cfdocumentitem>
   <cfdocumentitem type="footer">
      <font size="-3">Page #cfdocument.currentpagenumber#</font>
   </cfdocumentitem>      
  
</cfdocument>

It has to do with the size of the image.
Start with a real small image (16px x 16px) and you'll see that it displays fine.
Just experiment using a larger image each time until you find the ceiling.

good luck ...

This does not work.
I've managed to work around the problem by inserting the image into <cfdocumentsection>.
<cfdocumentsection> displays the image using the correct size but the downside is you have to calculate
manually each where each pagebreak occurs.

I will be closing this question now.

well yes - but your question implied that you wanted it in a section that "automatically" put it at the top of each page ...

so anyway ...
