Use this:


<rx:pdf-comment content="" title="attachment" opacity="0"><rx:pdf-file-attachment src="footerfields.pdf" filename="footerfields.pdf"/></rx:pdf-comment>

Subject: How to use <rx:pdf-file-attachment> without an icon?




I am using the XEP extension rx:pdf-file-attachment in order to append my xml source file to the resulting pdf-file.

This technic works pretty fine but I don’t like the icon, which is produced due to the specification


<!ENTITY % comments

  " pdf-sticky-note

  | pdf-file-attachment">


<!ELEMENT pdf-comment (%comments;)> <!-- just one particular comment! -->

<!ATTLIST pdf-comment

  content CDATA #IMPLIED



  opacity CDATA #IMPLIED>


<!ELEMENT pdf-sticky-note EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST rx:pdf-sticky-note

  icon-type ( comment | key | note | help | newparagraph

                      | paragraph | insert ) #IMPLIED

  open ( false | true ) #IMPLIED>


<!ELEMENT pdf-file-attachment EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST pdf-file-attachment


  filename CDATA #REQUIRED

  icon-type ( graph | pushpin | paperclip | tag ) #IMPLIED>


where rx:pdf-file-attachment is a child of a <rx:pdf-comment> with an implied icon-type.


Can anybody tell me how to avoid this visible icon?

Wouldn’t I be good if the icon-type can be extended with the value “no-icon” ?


I fully understand, that this icon has no influence on the printed pdf, but I cannot explain this to all of my customers.



By the way:

I took a second approach to reach my goal:

I used “pdftk” with option “attach_files” and my xml is attached to the pdf without any visible icon.

So in my humble opinion it is possible to avoid an icon for pdf-file-attachments.


Nevertheless I prefer to stay with RenderX rather than to mix with a second tool like pdftk


Kind regards
