server based PDF form filler software API FDFMerge
server based PDF form filling software API FDFMerge Lite 
PDF stamping software API StampPDF Batch 

These products are programmer's libraries/toolkits (APIs) that make it easy to create a system that stamps and merges information into PDF files automatically. Applying headers, footers, page numbers, Bates numbers, and watermarks are just some of the more common uses of these products. You can use these products to create an automated "book-building" system that creates customized books on the fly!

Note that these products support a variety of platforms, including AIX, AS/400, HP-UX, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, and Windows.

FDFMerge         
888-260-7316    info@CitationSoftware.com         

server based PDF form filler software FDFMerge is a command-line application that makes it easy for a programmer to write routines that populate form fields on a PDF form with text, bar codes, JPEG images, TIFF images, and individual pages from PDF files and save the completed form on a server.

Powered by the Adobe PDF Library, FDFMerge also does cropping; controls text color and justification; controls word spacing, character spacing and line spacing; uses bar-code fonts; linearizes and encrypts the completed files, and much more.

Command-line interface: simple yet powerful

The command-line interface is simple yet powerful. A command-line statement can be invoked in many different environments, with many different programming languages, including object-oriented languages such as Java, .NET, and Visual Basic. Sample code is available — contact us to request sample code for your programming language.

Adobe Acrobat not required

FDFMerge is a stand-alone application. You don't need to have Adobe Acrobat installed to use FDFMerge.

Support for multiple platforms

FDFMerge is available for AIX, HP-UX, Linux, Solaris, and Windows. AS/400 is supported under IBM UNIX System Services for AIX.


When using FDFMerge, you'll need to convert your data to FDF format or XFDF format if it isn't in one of those formats already. Does this sound mysterious? It's not! It's easy — and we provide FREE sample code. To get your sample code, call us at 888-260-7316 or email us at info@CitationSoftware.com.
To use FDFMerge, you start with a collection of PDF forms.

What is a PDF form?

A PDF form is a PDF file that contains form fields. To create a PDF form, you need a commercial version of the Adobe Acrobat software. (The free Adobe Reader software will NOT work.)

Instructions that come with the Adobe Acrobat software tell you how to create the form fields. Basically the procedure entails opening a PDF file in Adobe Acrobat (typically this PDF file would contain text and graphics); then drawing boxes with your mouse and assigning properties to the boxes. For example, if you need form fields that will contain a phone number and email address, you'd use Adobe Acrobat to draw two boxes, and (again using Adobe Acrobat) you could assign the name "Phone" to one of the boxes and assign the name "Email" to the other box.

Once you've created all your PDF forms, put them on your server.

Now write your script

You'll write a script that tells FDFMerge to grab a particular PDF form from your server and create multiple new versions of it by inserting textual data and/or graphics into the form fields in that PDF form. The result will be a collection of new PDF files containing filled-in form fields.

Your script can include instructions for using specific fonts, font sizes and colors for text; setting other typographic properties for text (alignment, word spacing, line spacing, etc.); setting properties for backgrounds and borders of form fields; flattening some or all of the form fields; encrypting the new PDF files; and more.
  • Populate PDF form fields with text, bar codes, JPEG images, TIFF images, or pages from PDF files.
  • Merge pages from PDF files onto active form buttons.
  • Add JavaScript to form fields.
  • Linearize (optimize) for fast Web viewing.
  • Encrypt output PDFs with passwords to control who can view, modify, and print them and who can copy text & graphics from within them.
  • Form flattening: remove active form fields, embedding field content directly into the document. This can be done with all the fields or just the fields you specify.
  • Unicode support.
  • Typographic control: specify font name, size, color, character spacing, word spacing, line spacing.
  • Formatting control for field borders: specify width and color.
  • Formatting control for field backgrounds: specify color or transparent.
  • Set the output-file version for ISO 32000 compliance (Adobe PDF Version 1.7).
  • Stand-alone operation (does not rely on Adobe Acrobat).

FDFMerge Lite         
888-260-7316    info@CitationSoftware.com         

server based PDF form filling software API FDFMerge Lite is a command-line application that makes it easy for a programmer to write routines that populate form fields on a PDF form and save the completed form on a server. Unlike the more-expensive FDFMerge product, FDFMerge Lite does not support partial form flattening, does not have the more-sophisticated formatting features of FDFMerge, and does not allow you to populate form fields with graphics (though it does allow you to merge pages from PDF files onto active buttons).

Powered by the Adobe PDF Library, FDFMerge Lite is a robust PDF-form-filling solution for simple forms workflows.

Command-line interface: simple yet powerful

The command-line interface is simple yet powerful. A command-line statement can be invoked in many different environments, with many different programming languages, including object-oriented languages such as Java, .NET, and Visual Basic. Sample code is available — contact us to request sample code for the programming language you're using.

Adobe Acrobat not required

StampPDF Batch is a stand-alone application. You don't need to have Adobe Acrobat installed to use StampPDF Batch.

Support for multiple platforms

StampPDF Batch is available for AIX, HP-UX, Linux, Solaris, and Windows. AS/400 is supported under IBM UNIX System Services for AIX.
To use StampPDF Batch, you start with a collection of PDF files. Typically the PDF files will contain text and graphics.

You'll write a script that tells StampPDF Batch to grab a particular PDF file from your server and create multiple new versions of it by adding text, graphics, and bar codes in specified locations on some or all of the pages. The result will be a collection of new PDF files containing the text, graphics, and bar codes added by StampPDF Batch.

Your script can include typographic specifications (fonts, font sizes, colors); it can also specify line breaks, transparency levels, and rotation angles for text; it can also include instructions for encrypting each new PDF file; various other options are available as well.
  • Stamp copyright notices, disclaimers, or other text in your choice of font, point size, and color.
  • Use any Type 1 font for text stamping.
  • Stamp bar codes
  • Automatic placement of start, stop, and check characters in Code 128 bar codes (Code 128 character set B is included).
  • Support for a built-in set of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) fonts.
  • Specify lines, line-breaks, and precise location.
  • Rotate text stamps to any angle.
  • Use JPEG, TIFF, or PDF files as stamps; resize and position them precisely.
  • Specify transparency level for stamped text or images.
  • Use over 30 built-in stamping variables including file and path name, document information, page numbers & Bates numbers, and date and time in a variety of formats.
  • Apply consecutive page numbering or Bates numbering across multiple files.
  • Automatic placement based on page size.
  • Automatic placement based on page diagonals; for example, top-left to bottom-right.
  • Scaling of stamped JPEG, TIFF, and PDF content.
  • Supports three PDF color spaces directly: RGB, CMYK, and Grayscale.
  • Remove stamps that are no longer needed as documents move through the workflow.
  • Stamp invisible text on documents (invisible text can be indexed by search engines).
  • Advanced typographic control, including character spacing, word spacing, and line leading.
  • Apply multi-line stamps.
  • Apply 40-bit or 128-bit file encryption with user password to control who can view, print, or modify the PDF documents generated by StampPDF Batch.
