This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; both Harlequin Core and Harlequin MultiRIP

These are the four object types:

Picture

This includes most PostScript language images, or equivalent in other PDLs, but see note below.

Text

Glyphs defined by a font description. However, it does not include text outlines that may be used to paint another object; such text outlines are treated as though they are just a mask for the actual object type.

Vignette

This includes PostScript shaded fills and equivalents in PDF.

Other

All PostScript language linework; fills, strokes, imagemasks and equivalent in other PDLs.

A Default object type may be used to assign the object types not otherwise specified.

The object type of some images can be controlled using setmiscobjectmappings, (see The setmiscobjectmappings operator ). They include 1-bit images and 1-pixel high images, which are commonly treated in the graphic arts as though they are Other and Vignette objects respectively.
