    I have a formatted txt file that is converted to pdf using the bldxffiles utility, but the pdf does not look as nice as the formatted txt file. Can someone give me pointers on how to make that happen?

    I use a MsgBuilder node to create the file and tab is used for spacing.....see attached files for comparison

    I'd suggest not using any special characters for pagination other than an actual space character in the text file.

    The bldxffiles utility *is* what is used when you view any batch job's output in PDF from the print manager. All batch jobs use spaces to paginate the page, so if you use spaces too, then it should look the same on the other side of the bldxffiles utility.
