Subject Re: Image Print size and quality
Date Mon, 23 Jan 2012 09:55:36 GMT
Hi Pascal,

I copied some of the FO.
In case you want to see more please let me know.
This FO text is relevant to the image that renders bad (not scaled)

<fo:block start-indent="10px" font-size="8px" font-family="arial"/>
<fo:table width="100%" table-layout="fixed">
<fo:table-column column-width="proportional-column-width(1)"/>
<fo:table-row keep-with-next="always">
<fo:external-graphic content-height="scale-to-fit" 
block-progression-dimension.maximum="90mm" content-width="scale-to-fit" 
inline-progression-dimension.maximum="90mm" border="solid 3px #8CE18D" 
<fo:block space-before="3mm"/>

So in case I haven't described well enough the problem I will try again:
There is a rectangle image  (300 * 300) that overflows out of the max area.
If I change the size of the same image to 310 * 300 or 300 * 310, then 
the image renders ok.

Please let me know if you need more info.
Thank you.
