Sorry if this is a silly question or if I'm using the wrong terminology. I am not so familiar with the PDF specs.
The report I am exporting to PDF is mostly white space with a little text (as are most reports, I suppose). However, I don't really want it to be "white space". Instead, I want it to be "transparent" or "empty space".
I have another PDF that we refer to as "Electronic Letterhead". We take the "Electronic Letterhead" and imprint the report "on top of" it. Similar to putting pre-printed letterhead in your printer then printing the report on it. Imagine, however, if your printer actually printed white ink all over your pretty letterhead thereby effectively hiding it. Ouch! That's what's happening when we layer the telerik report (exported to PDF) on top of our "Electronic Letterhead". Is there any way to tell the PDF export to leave the white space "transparent" instead of "white"?
FWIW, we are using ABCpdf to "merge" the two documents.
