Thanks everyone for your suggestions. 


Jason; I think PDF::Boxer is the closest to what I am looking for, so I will
give your module a try. 

The documents I am creating are payment receipts that include a listing of
the history of any previous part payments for the same purchase. 

Very similar in layout to invoices of multiple items, so it should be

Hi Andrew,


just in case it's at all useful there's also my PDF::Boxer module. I mainly
created it to simplify creating PDF invoices and similar documents. I
haven't been able to give it any love for a long time due to work (non-perl)
and family but it worked for what I needed at the time.

Is there a template module, or file that can be used with PDF::API2?

Or when PDF::API2 is used do people normally define the layout/style of the
PDF file in their Perl code? 

I've looked in the documentation, and googled, but I can't find anything.
Maybe I missed it. L


In addition to PDF::API2, I looked at PDF::Template but it doesn't look like
it is maintained much anymore.
