Converting both Text and Images to PDF

Hello.

I have been trying to create an app, which takes a text input and a number of taken pictures, and convert them into a PDF.

I have worked it out both with the text and pictures apart from each other following theese tutorials:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhE0-HumNNo&feature=youtu.be  (Text)

 

However, I'm strugling with collecting both Text and Images into one PDF file.

(Searched through Google more than 2 hours...)

 

I would appreciate any help!

Hi @mbal ,

 

Thanks for your suggestions.

 

I will help confirm further to see if there is a possible way could be used to convert both text and images to PDF using Flow.

 

You could also consider submitting a request on Flow Ideas Forum so that it might considered into future releases as well:

Hi @v-yamao-msft 
I looked it through but it don't provide any solutuion to the problem.
I really hope microsoft will look into this, for creating a better solutuion there is more user-friendly..

-We live in 2019..come on microsoft...it's a picture and text together, that can be uploaded as a pdf to sharepoint...you can do it in wordpress, android-studio, xcode, and all other programs..just not in powerapps...??
