Hi everybody!
First of all I have never said that Reportlab generates corrupted files.
REportlab works fine, I have been using reportlab during a year for all my
projects and I have never had a problem with this fantastic library.

The only problem that I have is that I generated a file with images with
reportlab and i can see in document viewer well. This file is OK it has all
the images and strings that I want. The only problem is that this file when
I try to open with Adobe Acrobat reader, says me that is corrupted. Not

I will send you the code and the PDF file to let you see this trouble.

Thank you a lot for your help and your answers.
