I am unable to find the answer from the product description. When converting a HTML page with text & graphics on it, does the essential pdf keep the text & graphics as separate objects or is it all converted into a graphic/bitmap image.

For example if I converted http://microsoft.com from HTML to a PDF would the text still be searchable inside the PDF?

Thanks in advance,
Jason.

Hi Jason,

Thank you for your interest in Essential PDF.

The conversion of HTML page to an PDF document is done as follows:

1. The HTML page is first converted to an bitmap image or a Metafile.

2. Then the image is drawn into the PDF document.

As the HTML page is converted to an image, the text may not be searchable inside the PDF.

Here is a sample for your reference:

Thanks,
Bhagya.
