PDF export direct from TextMaker or FlexiPDF

Post by JezShed » Wed May 08, 2019 8:12 pm

Hi all,
Does anyone have any personal preference between the built-in PDF export feature of TextMaker compared to FlexiPDF 2019?
I've recently purchased FlexiPDF and it has created an icon in my TextMaker but I'm not yet sure of the relative merits of creating a PDF using that or the built-in PDF export feature.
I know that FlexiPDF allows for editing the PDF file itself, but my question relates to the creation of the PDF in the first place.
What are people's thoughts?
Are there any quality/efficiency differences?

The internal PDF export is always better than a printer driver. A printer driver cannot preserve hyperlinks, create automatic TOCs etc. whereas the internal PDF export can, because it knows everything about a document.

Thank you Martin, that makes perfect sense.
