I'm currently generating a PDF with PyFPDF. I also need to add a vertical/rotated text. Unfortunately, it's not directly supported in PyPDF as far as I see. There are solutions for FPDF for PHP.
<strong>Is there a way to insert vertical or rotated text in a PDF from Python, either with PyFPDF or with another library?</strong>Answer1:
I believe you can do so with <a href="http://pymupdf.readthedocs.io/en/latest/page/#Page.insertText" rel="nofollow">PyMuPDF</a>. I've inserted text with the module before but not rotated text. There is a rotate parameter in the
insertText method so hopefully it will work for you.
It can be done as follows:
import fitz doc = fitz.open(filename) page = doc point = fitz.Point(x, y) # in PDF units (1 / 72 of an inch) page.insertText( point, text="Hello World", fontsize=8, fontname="Helvetica", # Use a PDF Base 14 Fonts, else check documentation color=(0, 0, 0), rotate=90 ) doc.save(filename, incremental=True) doc.close()
