I've been playing around with cfdocument and it's driving me absolutely nuts!  I have a simple page that looks something like this

<!DOCTYPE html>
<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css">
</head>
<body>

<cfinclude teamplate="title.cfm">

Tjos os a test


</body>
</html>

When i wrap  a cfdocument around this, it creates the PDF just fine, however the problem I'm having is that the included template does not pickup my stiles.   I don't know what to do to get this fixed.  I want Aial.  Any thoughts.  Thanks in advance

You can't use  link to the style sheet. You need to use @import

It's also picky about doctype

I will try that and let you know. Probably won't be able to get to it until Monday.

I did everything and it works for the most part.  I still have one weird issue.  In my PDF I use <cfimage>.  This block isn't hit all the time because some reports have a chart and some don't.  When it hits the <cfimage> tag the font size seems to resize.  Any ideas?  These reports need to look uniform and right now they change size when I add an image.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

not specifically but there are a couple of things to try

1) make sure you are fully patched. There have been many, many cfdocument issues fixed since the tag was introduced.
2) unless there's a compelling reason, don't use cfimage within the tag. Do whatever image manipulation you need to, write it to disk and then load with a simple <img> tag.

I am fully patched.  I tried just using a regular img and my pdf still looks like it's scaling down.

From what I've seen images with resolution higher than 96 dpi may cuase this scaling issue - you could see if making sure that is the case helps.

you also may want to try forcing the page size of cfdocument by adding the pagetype="letter" attribute (I'd try this one first if you haven't already)

That was it!  Between the pagetype and the css doc I got it to work.  Thanks!
