I've been playing around with Snappy to generate PDFs from a Laravel View. The PDF is an invoice and ideally I'd like to store it and then automatically email a copy to a client.
It seems like an image of my view is being generated and I can't copy/paste text from the PDF. The files can become large if my invoices are several pages - not ideal for storage or email.
Neither of these problems occur when I print the page to a PDF using the browser (I can't remember if I have some sort of plug-in installed), so I know it's possible to generate a different type of PDF.
Any suggestions? Is there some Snappy configuration that I'm missing? Do you guys have other package suggestions?
