Innovations Version 3.24.1:

With version 3.24.1. some extensions and improvements have been made that are not directly on the user interface visible and affect all versions of the printer driver.

ESFX new file format for the profiles: All printer driver settings can be saved as a profile and retrieved when needed. So far, the ending ESF was used. The profile data generated via the user interface, as well as those that could be created through the SDK were not compatible due to historical reasons. That is why we have implemented a new unified XML data format with the extension ESFX. This is now compatible between User Interface and SDK function.

Similarly, the profile function was to User Interface and SDK been enhanced that now all settings eDocPrintPro add-ons PDF / A-1,2,3 ZUGFeRD, FLASH / SVG, and configuration of the plugin chains stored in the profiles and reloaded.

SDK Extensions: Saving and loading the add-on settings as XML. Function to save all settings of the driver as XML (ESFX) and load again. Speed optimization in the communication of SDK with the Printer Driver. Possibility for PDF / A-3 enable / disable the option to query the attachments via SDK. Function to determine the version number of the installed printer driver eDocPrintPro.

AutoOCR – Folder processing / monitoring – what to consider?

Features – AutoOCR processing / monitoring folders:

1.) Processing input folders / structures: Here an input folder or an entire folder structure is processed. The generated PDF files are stored in the same folder structure with the same name as the original fileHowever, a special case, PDF files, as there are PDF files which do not require OCR processing and others which require one. It may also happen that only certain pages of a PDF file need to OCR processing.

In order not to process the PDF’s again that have already been processed by AutoOCR files are indicated in the data structure by a label”.

At the start of the service AutoOCR the folder structure completely scanned to identify backlogged files. Each PDF file needs to be checked for this “label”. It should be noted that with large data sets, this process takes a long time since any PDF file must be opened and checked.

2.) retain date / time of the original file: With this option, the date and time of creation, modification, and last access can be transmitted from the source file to the generated by OCR PDF file. The PDF document is thus replaced without changing the attributes.

3.) Smart OCR processing of PDF files: PDFs can be pure image files without text, normal” PDF files that already contain text or be mixed documents. Here individual pages are scanned image files with no text and the remaining pages are normal PDF content with text. Without special functionality always the whole PDF document will be OCR processed and so all pages regardless of the content. This takes time, resources and increases the PDF files unnecessarily. That is why you should activate the intelligent OCR processing. Only those documents and pages OCR be processed, where it is necessary. Normal” PDF files are not processed, but only marked with a label” see 1.).

4.) Folder Monitor File System Events / block processing: If it is required that during the current processing newly added files are immediately detected and processed, so the “File System Eventsmust be selectedIf selected block processing“, so newly added files are not automatically detected. The block processingis specifically designed for the initial processing of large volumes of documents. After the initial processing should then be switched to file system eventsso that newly added files are immediately processed. If the AutoOCR service stopped and restarted, the complete folder structure is searched for unprocessed files first always.

5.) Process files / folders from network shares: After installing the AutoOCR service runs by default as “Local System Account”. Must to files and folders are handled by the network shares, allowed so you have to create a user account” to be used for the AutoOCR service which also has the appropriate rights to access the network shares used access.

If this option is active, the original date and time information remains.
