Hi There,

1) Is there a way to set the PDF document Print Dialog Presets property

     i.e "Paper Source by Page Size" property.


2) Also i have try the demo and created a PDF file with the "Metafile" options but its still come out as one big picture inside the PDF, is this the expected behaviour ?

is it possible to save a HTML page to PDF and still able to highligh the text in the file like any normal PDF document ?


Thanks in advance.

Hi Phil,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

1.    Currently it is not possible to customize properties of Print Dialog Presets. We have logged a feature request on this regard and we will get back to you once it is implemented.

2.    Could you please check if you have Internet Explorer version 9 installed in your machine? HtmlConverter makes use of MSHTML (IE rendering engine) to convert the webpage to image. With IE 9 there is a known issue that it generates only raster image. You can get more information on this from the following link:


As explained, to solve this, the key FEATURE_IVIEWOBJECTDRAW_DMLT9_WITH_GDI should be updated in the registry. Please run the utility placed in the following location to perform the above changes automatically.

Legacy Drawing.zip

Please try this and let me know if you have any questions.
