DVI to PDF translator


Dvipdfm is a DVI to PDF translator. Its features include:

  • TeX special's that approximate the functionality of the PostScript pdfmarks used by Adobe Acrobat Distiller. Links, outlines, articles, and named destinations are supported, for example.
  • Support for standard DVI specials such as the HyperTeX specials and the TPIC specials.
  • Support for thumbnails (with help from GhostScript).
  • Ability to include PDF, PNG, and JPEG files as embedded images. For PDF files, only the first page is included. Resources will be embedded from the original file as necessary. File inclusion does not work for PDF files that store the page contents in several segments in an array.
  • Virtual font support
  • Support for both Type1 and PK fonts.
  • Support for arbitrary linear graphics transformations. Any material on the page can be scaled and rotated.
  • A color stack accessible via special's.
  • Partial font embedding and stream compression for reduced output file size
  • Balanced page and destination trees for improved reader access on very large document files.
