Using VB.Net, QuickPDF Library v16 DLL.  Objective is to convert a one page text file formatted mostly as separate lines without word wrap to a PDF.  Looking at forum and KB I could not code for this requirement.

After reading the text file with StreamReader (either ReadLine and appending vbCRLF or reading the text file into one string) the following code gives me a PDF with only one line across the top with no line breaks.
  qp.SetOrigin(1)                   ' origin at top left
  qp.DrawText(30, 50, sText)  ' write text after top left margin
  qp.SaveToFile(sPDFname)    ' save to pdf document 

Same result using: 
  Dim hFile = fs.SafeFileHandle.DangerousGetHandle()
  qp.DASaveAsFile(hFile, sPDFname)    where hFile is the file handle to the formatted text file.

In all cases the CR + LF do not work.

How can I effectively convert a plain formatted text file to PDF so it appears similar?

Hi,

i've done a quick search in the online reference...
