So I convert a piece of text to PDF like so:
INPUT="this text goes to a pdf file" paps $INPUT 2>/dev/null | ps2pdf -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -dOptimize=true -dEmbedAllFonts=true - out.pdf
Which works great, were it not for the very annoying fact that the produced PDF is an image -- meaning the text can't be selected or searched. I searched for alternatives, but I could not find one that allows the font to be changed (which
paps does). In particular, the alternatives given here are not suitable, for one reason or another (lack of UTF-8 support, etc.).
Is there a tool that fulfils the aforementioned requirements?
