itext confusion

Hi all

I'm trying to implement the itext JAR in order to combine PDFs.

I have the advanced edition of ScriptMaster.

From what I've seen, the registergroovy function is one of the things that is required. However I can't find it in my custom generated SM plugin.

It only ever appears when I load the ScriptMaster plugin generator.

Does this mean that the 'ScriptMaster.fmp12' file will always have to be open?

I thought I would be able to load the itext JAR in to the plugin generator, add my own PDF module that refers to it and then generate my plugin. But that doesn't seem to be how anyone has done it.

What am I misunderstanding here?


Thanks

When you make your own plugin the function that you create then becomes available as an external function, so no need for the RegisterGroovy step.

You will need to get  licence to do what you are doing to remain legal though, using the latest versions. And of you are using an old version with a previous licence, read here about why you probably shouldn't
