Overview

HOOPS Publish can be used to export the data into a PDF document. This section describes the different types of entities that can figure on a PDF document.

A PDF document contains pages. A page layout comprises different kind of entities, some are static entities (meaning they are created at document creation and cannot be modified), and some are dynamic (meaning they can be modified at running time, sometimes interactively by the end user action). Static layout entities are text line, image, table, link, and 2D drawings. Dynamic layout entities (widgets) are fields (text, buttons, lists, ...) or high level widgets such as view carousel or scroll table. The 3D annotation is also a dynamic entity.
