PDFmdx – Reading position data via a sliding group – Product video

PDFmdx can read information from PDF documents via defined areas and assign them to a field. However, there is also information in a document that occurs several times. For example, position data of invoices – quantity, article number, price etc. These are usually executed as tables in fixed columns and a variable number of rows.

PDFmdx is also able to read position data from PDF documents with the help of “sliding groups”. Fields are assigned to a “sliding group” and positioned on the template document. Criteria define conditions to identify a row as a “sliding group” record. Two delimiters determine in which vertical area of the pages such data records are searched for.

The following video also shows the use of “anchor fields” to find and read information which is “moving” on a page and has no fixed position, e.g. the final amount of an invoice.

Separating sheets containing barcodes can also be deleted.

eDocPrintPro free / PDF/A & ZUGFeRD version 4.0.0 available

Until now, a monitor application (xxxMonitor.exe) was started automatically for each eDocPrintPro printer driver when the computer was started. The start of the monitor application was entered under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (64bit OS).

As of version 4.0.0, the eDocPrintProMonitor.exe is no longer started automatically and is no longer listed unter “Run”. The printer driver only calls the monitor application when it is needed and is therefore no longer permanently stored in memory.
