The DynamicPDF Designer is the DynamicPDF Cloud API's graphic tool for developing PDF reports. Refer to one of the following topics or tutorials for more information.
The DynamicPDF Designer is a layout tool used to create templates to create PDF documents using the
dlex-layout endpoints. Elements are dragged, dropped, resized, and positioned in Designer to create a template as a DLEX file. The DLEX file, combined with a JSON dataset, can then be used via the DynamicPDF CloudAPI's endpoints.
