Description mikhail.voytenko 2009-03-30 08:11:23 UTC
Currently it looks to be impossible to generate a thumbnail of the first
document page per API. It would be quite easy to implement and looks to be
useful for some users.

mod->mav: would it be easy and possible as well to generate a thumbnail of the
whole document instead of just the first page? This would be very helpful e.g. for 

- document layout tests
- layout comparison of different office suites

Yes it is possible. Would probably need a little bit more efforts. Changing the

Just for completeness: I assume that it will be possible to chose any format
that a Graphic object can be exported to. That would be png, bmp, EPS etc.

The purpose mentioned by Max is important. It could make our "Convwatch" tooling
much easier. In this case the output probably should be page oriented

If the output format isn't multi-page capable we can return more than one image,
but I still wonder whether it would be better to use an API like XRenderable
where the API user decides which pages should be rendered. So we would have a
loop over all renderable items (=pages or slides) that creates an object that
can retrieve an object that can be exported to any graphical format.
