Looks very powerful! Thank you very much :D

Hint: You should change the first line in your example codes to the following, as they are placed in a sub-folder "Examples", while the include file is in the parent drawer:
XIncludeFile "../pbPDFModule.pbi"
Bye,

Which PDF viewer did you use? Some don't seem to support all file types.

I find the errror in your programm PB_pdf_Pageformat.pb

Ligne 30, 34 and 38 GetPageHeight is uncorrectly written
PDF::Cell(#PDF, StrF(PDF::GetPageWidth(#PDF), 0) + "x" + StrF(PDF::GetPageHeigth(#PDF), 0) + " mm", 40, 10, #True)

instead of
PDF::Cell(#PDF, StrF(PDF::GetPageWidth(#PDF), 0) + "x" + StrF(PDF::GetPageHeight(#PDF), 0) + " mm", 40, 10, #True)

For the launching of file i can't solve it

It works for me.
Probably the file type (*.txt) is not linked to any program.

Unfortunately this is not possible, you can only create your own PDF documents.
You need a tool like "pdftk".
