      Description

      We want to use TextToPDF in batch command line mode to convert legacy reports which assume a mono-spaced font, but most of our old legacy reports are 128 characters wide and without a Landscape option, they come out wrapped into illegibility. Using a Courier 6 font just barely keeps them from wrapping, but it messes up the pagination. Please note that this ticket relates to PDFBOX-3409, where leading spaces are lost, which is even more of a deal-breaker for us than this. A Courier 10 example is attached. See ticket PDFBOX-3409 for a Courier 6 example.
