You can download it from

This plugin creates PDF files from Neobook pages.
Next releases it will do a lot or more stuff.

If it interest you, give it a try

Alberto a question,

This might be a silly question but what do you mean when you say that it creates pdfs. It seems that it is creating is a bmp file.

Hi. No it create a PDF file. The bmp created is just a tem file to put in the PDF. Cheers.

Just tried out this plug-in ; observations ...

a) nice to see that it can capture image of entire NeoBook page (even the parts not visible/fit on screen)

b) the resulting bmp file was about 1MB ; is it because you are using high-resolution (24-bit) format ?

c) I placed a Browser object in your sample pub ; in the bmp file, it came out as a blank rectangle ; didn't try other plug-ins' rectangle objects, but can you tell if the stuff displayed by plug-ins is displayable or something you have no access to ?

the file size of the bmp is because the size of the memory. I don´t compress it because I don´t want to loose speed and quality. This bmp can be discarded. It´s only a temp file. If the people think it´s a nice feature, i can compress to jpeg or other format.

the screen capture routine is a neobook function in sdk (an interface routine). I have no control about what is capture: just a handle to the page bitmap, rendered by neobook. But... it´s not so much difficult read the objects handles and clip the region, i think. Just a thought.
