OK, at the moment it’s a very simple proof of concept, but it works. I’m just about to add some font handling stuff to it, but beyond that what would you need? Does your document contain multiple fonts/sizes? (That’s easy enough to handle.) What about images? Tables? Any fancy formatting? These will all be described in the document structure, but I don’t want to use the original if we need to get in to any NDA stuff. I can dummy up a document with the features you need unless you can provide something similar to the original.
A big caveat of course is that the more complex the document the harder the task, and while I am a competent programmer I don’t know all the ins and outs of either docx or lbrn2 files. I’m sure there’s a better way of doing this, but I am up for the challenge though. Maybe you can find someone who can open the document in a newer version of Word and print to PDF in a vector format? Or maybe an upgrade to your PDF driver? I’m not an Apple guy so I don’t know if there are any alternatives to Word that you could install to get you what you need.
One more thing before we get started, if we’re going to do this - have you done a test with your laser and proposed material on some similar text within LightBurn to make sure you get results you’re happy with? It would be a shame to do all this and then not be able to actually produce the finished article to your satisfaction!
