Using Skia’s PDF Backend

Here is an example of using Skia’s PDF backend (SkPDF) via the SkDocument and SkCanvas APIs.

SkPDF Limitations

There are several corners of Skia’s public API that SkPDF currently does not handle because either no known client uses the feature or there is no simple PDF-ish way to handle it.

Effect text images everything else
SkMaskFilter drop ignore ignore
SkPathEffect ignore n/a expand
SkColorFilter ignore expand ignore
SkImageFilter expand expand expand
unsupported SkXferModes ignore ignore ignore
non-gradient SkShader expand n/a expand
