haven't tried for now, but since my distro (Archlinux) is switching to python3 as default env., my situation is that seems reportlab isn't ready for python3, so now i'm watching around to find an alternative solution ;-)
Today i've found POD, but i haven't found info on its python3 support so asked here ;-)

For sure. With POD, you create your document template with OpenOffice Writer (or another ODF-compliant word processor like KOffice). So everything you can do with OpenOffice, you can do it with POD. After this, you have to insert "dynamic" content by writing, in your document, special instructions written in Python, as "notes" or "track-changed" text. This is rather simple to use. You can consult the documentation at

Stefano, your last comment was that you *hope* that it works. Can you confirm whether it actually does work for you?
