Bridge from Version 5 onwards offers a direct, object-oriented PDF export capability. This makes Bridge a practical tool for everyone who wants to create PDF documents, but shies away from the cost of the very expensive Adobe Acrobat software package.
Bridge creates object oriented PDF, exactly the same way as in its PS and EPS output. So raster images stay in the PDF as single raster images, while all vector based Calamus objects such as lines, raster areas and vector graphics stay as single vector elements in the PDF.
Text from Calamus documents will be written either as PostScript text with embedded fonts or as vector graphic text on PDF output. PDF files with vectorized text cannot be searched with text search functions any longer.
