Hi,

We receive documents in TIFF format and distribute them in TIFF or PDF format to our customers. We have a request to create editable PDF documents. I have following questions.

  1. Is there an open-source API and library that I can use for creating editable PDFs?
  2. In particular, can I use tiff2pdf that comes with latest libtiff release for creating an editable PDF?
  3. I need additional information on requirements for creating editable PDFs from a tiff image. Any details/pointers to creating editable PDFs will be useful.

Thanks,

Raghu
