Not only are we actively maintaining all our plugins, but we have been trickling out improvements… realized while we work on the successor to our PDF stamping plugins. For example, with version 1.2 of WooStamper (and v1.3 of EDDiStamper) there is better handling of PDF pages of varying size, in order to keep stamps inside… continue reading?
Things have been slow-going because there are numerous projects on the project heap and none too pressing. I worked two jobs all summer because of Covid-19-related issues. I’m finally starting to have more time – yes! Yet, I now suffer arthritis in my hands, especially my thumbs. That makes long stretches of coding pretty… painful.… continue reading?
At the moment there are quite a few softwares (mostly paid) that allow you to manipulate PDF files as they are sold online.

Sort of a long time coming, but folks have been asking politely over the years if we could build in a font uploader for WaterWoo, such that fonts could be added without knowledge of PHP. As it was, it wasn’t too complicated to hook into the existing TCPDF addTTFfont() function, but we get it: not… continue reading?
