Android Question Printer PDF interpreters more or less fragile

I am implementing PDF generation with the Printing library as described here:
https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/printing-and-pdf-creation.76712/#content

It works well with a HP MFP M227fdw printer, but a Brother HL-L3210CW has errors with exactly the same code.

It seems like the Brother interpreter cannot handle certain things. For instance, I have a routine to print dotted lines, which systematically creates errors on the Brother printer, and prints fine with the HP.

Would it exist another option to create PDF files ?

That is what I am doing. I have removed the dotted line routine and now use a light gray solid line.

I am going to pursue my experiments. It takes time and paper, as the only way to know if a PDF passes, is to print it.

Sometimes it takes quite a while as well...
