Append values to pdf attachment in ERP


Hi everyone here am trying to edit the pdf attachment after attached to doctype. Is there anyway to do that or suggest me to do that any other way…!!!


We have instead attached images and then got them printed in PDFs via print formats. This is the easiest solution to include any external file in a print.


@dhananjay Thanks for reply.ok how to see the attached pdf in print format?


@arokia you cannot attached PDF in print format. You can use tag with “Custom Html” in the print format builder.


i want to edit pdf in attachment is there any way?


@arokia it would be better if you explain your use case there may be another way of doing what you want. However, there is no way to edit a PDF in ERPNext.
What we have do is coverted PDFs to png and included them in the print format with custom html.


What i want is am uploading a pdf into erp and on click of print button…a number to be displayed in that pdf.


I don’t think it is possible.


ok is there any way out to do this?
