eDocPrintPro version 3.20. available

Innovations – eDocPrintPro version 3.20. :

UniCode support: The version 3.20 is an essential update, because all components got compiled with the latest versions of the C++ libraries and everything got adjusted for UniCode support. Now UniCode coded characters and strings can be used anywhere: in file names, paths, at the PDF info fields, attachements and descriptions texts. So anywhere where a input is possible.

DEVMODE update: Now any setting which can be set via UI or SDK is available via the Windows API – DEVMODE. So far it was necessary to open the user interface once and save or print with it for the parameters to be actualized and set. This correction is especially for user of the SDK interesting and necessary.

Further adjustments to GhostScript 9.10: Export of PS and EPS as well as PDF optimization for the web (linearization) got adjusted and are functioning with the version 3.20 now. With eDocPrintPro 3.20 only GhostScript 9.10 is supported. Older version can’t be used anymore. Therefor it won’t be possible in the future to choose another GhostScript version in the user interface.

Variables: %page%, %pages% and %time% and %date% – These variables didn’t get replaced and filled correctly everywhere – this error got corrected.

PDFSplit – eDocPrintPro plugin – new version 2.3.0

Innovations PDFSplit – eDocPrintPro plugin – version 2.3.0:

Split by barcode: In addition to the existing functions for splitting of the created PDF file via search strings for folder and file name, as well as page amount and number, with the version 2.3.0 there comes the possibility to split the document automatically via 1D-barcode. 18 different barcode types are supported. They can be placed on the pages in any position and orientation. The first barcode of a configured type recognized on the page splits the document on this page. The page with the barcode gets the first page of the new doument and the recognized value of the barcode is assigned as file name.

Combined 32bit / 64bit setup: There is now only a single combined 32 / 64bit setup. At the installation it gets automatically recognized which OS version is used and the matching setup gets executed.

PDFmdx – version 1.6.0 – OCR, Regular Expression, XLS lookup for e-mail adresses, start of the processing via date & time

Innovations PDFmdx version 1.6.0:

1.) Area OCR: marked areas / field contents now can be read from the document via OCR. For every field a mode can be set to decide how the text should be read from thePDF – Native – With that the underlying text is read directly from the PDF like so far. OCR / SmartOCR – Not always every word which is in the marked area can be read from any PDF. Sometimes there is only an image or only a whole sentence/paragraph but not a single term on a specific position can be read – In this case the OCR / SmartOCR mode can be used. With that an image gets created which is then processed with OCR. The marked area can be read, independent of how the PDF is constructed or how it was created. In the OCR settings the OCR-language as well as the resolution for the conversion of the PDF to the image are configured. The standard value for the resolution is at 300dpi and can be raised up to 600dpi for difficult fonts and documents. SmartOCR automatically switches between native and OCR.

2.) Regular Expression: RegEx rules can be defined for every field and allow a preperation and filtering of the extracted field contents – e.g.:

  • [ab]+“ corresponds to „a“, „b“, „aa“, „bbaab“ etc.
  • [0-9]{2,5}“ corresponds to two, three, four or five digits in a row, e.g. “42” or “54072”, but not the strings “0”, “1.1” or “a1a1”

3.) XLS lookup for e-mail adresses: With this feature a XLS(X) file with 2 columns can be used to find an e-mail address, which is not contained in the document, via a key value like a customer id to use it as variable in the “to”-field for the e-mail transmission.

4.) Start of the processing at a specific date & time: So far the processing could be started manually or recurring with a defined interval but it wasn’t possible to start it at a specified date and time. This could be useful to send a bigger amount of e-mails delayed at night to not disturb the normal work flow. The files can be prepared and the processing will be started at the defined time.

eDocPrintPro – Plugin – PrintDOC – creates MS-Word Dokumente via printing process and PDF

The PrintDOC eDocPrintPro Plugin makes it possible to create a MS-Word text file – DOC, DOCX, RTF, TXT or HTML via printing process from any application. With that it’s e.g. possible to edit or add text to an offer or invoice belatadly. Or the printout of an internet page through the browser can be saved as word document and then added to another document. Thereby the original layout remains the same as far as possible. Therefor the edited file can be outputted as PDF again afterwards.

Caution: An existing PDF file shouldn’t be printed again via the Acrobat Reader but converted to the MS-Word format directly by drag & dopping it into the eDocPrintPro DropZone. By printing a PDF file again with the PDF printer driver the text content could get unusable. Therefor the direct way over the DropZone is preferable for already existing PDF’s.
