  • Is PDF Export deprecated ?

    I really don't understand how this is possible.
    In my opinion, eZpublish developers should have come up with a replacement instead of simply "deprecating" all of these functions. Even if we all know these functions shouldn't be used, we are forced to use them still.

    Or is the whole concept of exporting to PDF deprecated ?

    I sincerely hope for an explanation from eZpublish.
    • Re: Is PDF Export deprecated ?

      Deprecated means it will be replaced by something else over time ... so for now, you can still use them (with the limitations it has)

      Best regards
