Oxygen XML Editor provides experimental support for PDF images using the Apache PDFBox library.

To allow the rendering of PDF images in Author mode, follow this procedure:

  1. Go to http://pdfbox.apache.org/downloads.html and download the pre-built PDFBox standalone binary JAR files: pdfbox-2.0.3.jar, fontbox-2.0.3.jar, and xmpbox-2.0.3.jar. Alternatively, you can use the 1.8.12 version of these files, as they have been tested and work properly.
    Note: It is not recommended to use pdfbox-app-2.0.3.jar file instead of the three specified files because it contains additional classes that may cause conflicts elsewhere in Oxygen XML Editor.
  2. Create a subfolder called pdfImageJars in the [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]\lib directory.
  3. Copy the downloaded JAR libraries to that newly created subfolder.
  4. Restart the application.
