It's that time of year again. Trees are lit, presents are being wrapped, and relatives are coming to visit. That's right, it's time again for the 12 days of Christmas-- 2022 ITB Video Release Edition! 

Today, Day 11's Videos from Into the Box 2022 Conference, 3 Sessions about PDFs

For the next 12 business days up until Christmas, we'll be releasing a series of related videos each day on the CFCasts site for our Paid and Unpaid CFCasts Subscribers, and a announcement with titles, descriptions, and links to the videos, right here on the Ortus blog. Consider it our early Christmas gift to you.

We were planning on releasing the videos on Dec 24th, but we couldn't wait any longer.

Scott Steinbeck - Advanced PDF Generation + Building a gitbook Markdown conversion process - Free

Take a dive deep into the undocumented features of Flying Saucer (the engine behind cfDocument) in pursuit of creating a pdf with page numbering, context-aware chapter headings, table page breaks, and more.

Then we will spend some time digging into markdown conversion using a java library Flexmark to handle many aspects of markdown conversions including tables, auto-linking, embedded YouTube, etc.

Mark Takata - Advanced Manipulation of PDF Documents using Adobe ColdFusion DDX

Adobe ColdFusion provides the ability to leverage a limited set of the DDX declarative document manipulation language to modify, add to and otherwise alter PDF documents without the need to install the separate LifeCycle Assembler service. Mark Takata, Technical Evangelist for Adobe ColdFusion, will explore the power of this often overlooked capability for expanding how your applications work with PDF documents.

Raymond Camden - Extending PDF Capabilities With Adobe Document Services

ColdFusion ships with some pretty impressive document features, but you can extend them even further using Adobe Document Services. In this talk, I'll discuss how the free PDF Embed API can be used in your ColdFusion site to provide better control over the PDF experience in the browser. I'll then talk about our API offerings: Adobe PDF Services API, Adobe Document Generation API, and Adobe PDF Extract API.
