Default Convert RTF to PDF

I am trying to convert the contents of OBX.5.5 that is a base 64 encoded RTF string to a PDF string to place back in OBX.5.5.

I found the forum article https://www.mirthcorp.com/community/...ad.php?t=14184 and that told me to do the following steps.

Convert RTF to plain text
Use Document Writer to create PDF from Text Store as attachment
Include attachment token in OBX.5

When I try converting to RTF using the function rtfToPlain text my variable is empty.

My code is below. I have seen many questions on converting RTF to PDF but no real solution. I am on Connect version Thanks for the help.

var RTFcontent = '';
var ToText = '';

RTFcontent = msg['OBX']['OBX.5']['OBX.5.5'].toString()

ToText = FileUtil.rtfToPlainText(RTFcontent, null);

I am new to Mirth.... just assessing feasibility to see if this product will do what I am expecting of it.

I have an HL7 message with an embedded RTF in OBX5 (as denoted by '{\rtf...' - can someone please provide me with a definitive set of steps or even better a Youtube video, etc., to show how I'd go about converting the embedded RTF into a PDF?

Many, Many thanks!
