Thank you for your reply. I think I may not have been clear as to the
problem that I'm having though.
The issue is that c.addOutlineEntry("Page 1","P1") is not working at
all. This call results in a "ValueError: format not resolved P1"
exception when called from PPSlide::drawOn. However, if
c.addOutlineEntry("Page 1","Page 1") or c.addOutlineEntry("P1","P1")
is called then I do not reach this exception. so if 'name' and 'key' are
the same we're fine. The problem with this, of coarse, is that my
outline will not have unique keys if any names should be repeated.
pythonpoint.PPSlide.drawOn does the same thing. It calls
canv.addOutlineEntry(tag, tag, self.outlineLevel). However, I don't see
that this is a pythonpoint issue. It seems to be a problem in the
rendering of the document int that pdfdoc.Destination.fmt is not being
set for some reason when pdfdoc.addOutlineEntry has been called with the
name and key being different. This problem is easily duplicated by
changing the key value in the canv.addOutlineEntry call in method
pythonpoint.PPSlide.drawOn to something like addOutlineEntry(tag,
I have spent a significant amount of time trying to track down this
problem so any further suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
