Is it possible to create a report in pdf format from a word template using report generator in Matlab R2018b?
The code I am using is below and creates the word report, but I would like to save it in pdf format instead:
import mlreportgen.dom.*
D = Document('From Template','docx','Template.dotx');
open(D);
moveToNextHole(D)
append(D,'Hello World')
close(D);

Are there any new information on this topic? In particular, a platform independent solution?
The only solution I have found is:
docview('docFile.docx','convertdocxtopdf','closeapp');
However, this requires Word and according to the documentation it is only possible on Windows platforms.
