This is my first post in Mesh, so hopefully I'm doing this right.
I need to create a nice looking PDF from a work object, and not necessarily while viewing the work object in a browser, but also from an agent activity. I've read the various PDN articles regarding this with summary and list views, and have successfully created a PDF in 6.1 and P7 PE. Our immediate need will be in an 5.4 instance. I believe the 6.1 methods will also work in 5.4.
To get the PDF created, I had to create a new 'master' section to stream the work object through the HtmlToPDF method and use a Code-Pega-eForm and Connect File to write the PDF. While you can read the PDF content, it is quite ugly. Also, I don't really want to create a new section rule just to write the PDF. I'd like to use a Review harness and get a nice PDF from that.
Does anyone have some suggestions?

If your concern is about the "look and feel" of the generated PDF, i think you can use a HTML stream rule where you can put in your own code to get the desired look. In the HTMLToPDF activity, the markup param can be populated in an earlier step to any html stream rule. But then again, you will need to create a stream rule just for this purpose.
