Visual XSL:FO Design
StyleVision makes it easy to design attractive PDF documents using a unique, drag-and-drop layout process. Simply specifiy your source content - which may be XML, SQL database, XBRL, or a combination - and drag nodes to the design pane. StyleVision prompts you to specify formatting rules for each field, and you are also assisted by intelligent entry helpers.
As you work, advanced features such as conditional templates, charts, barcodes, and more are available to enhance your design. Since PDF documents are paginated, StyleVision includes special XSL:FO options including bookmarks, tables of contents, cover page design options, headers and footers, and so on. The intuitive visual design process means you don’t need prior XSL, XPath, or template coding experience to design PDF output.
At any time during the design process you can view and save the XSL:FO stylesheet autogenerated by StyleVision, the PDF, and the multi-channel output created simultaneously.
