PDFPrint-FM Version 1.4.2 – Setup – Installation as a service / executable application

With the PDFPrint-FM – PDF print application with folder monitoring version 1.4.2, there is now the option of installing the application as an “Executable Application” (= standard setting) or as a “Windows Service” during installation. When installing as a Windows service, certain things must be observed when accessing network resources (shares, network printers), so that it is often easier to install PDFPrint-FM as a normal startable Windows application for a first test. How the application should be installed is decided via a checkbox in the setup. If you want to change this, PDFPrint-FM can be uninstalled and then reinstalled at any time. The license and the settings are retained.

Another new feature is the option to print color documents in grayscale.

Version 1.4.2 is also required for the Windows 10 20H2 update, because after an update to 20H2 the “extended” print component generates an error and the PDFs to be printed are moved to the error folder.

PDFCompressor-CL command line version 1.2.0 – variables for the target file name

With the PDFCompressor-CL command line version 1.2.0 several variables are available for the output file name.

  • @DATE@ – date
  • @TIME@ – time
  • @ORIGNAME@ – output file name
  • @ORIGEXT@ – output file extension

This makes it possible to process all files in an entire folder structure and to store the files in the same folder structure and e.g. add an addition to the original file name.

“C:\Program Files\PDFCompressor-CL\PDFCompressor-CL.exe” /src=”c:\temp” /dst=”c:\temp\@ORIGNAME@_compressed.@ORIGEXT@” /config=neu /subfolders=true /log=”c:\temp\log.txt”

iPaper Client – Version 3.0.68 – Overlay / fill in PDF forms, link action profiles with the stationery

Innovations – iPaper 3.0.68:

  • Link stationery to an action profile: Action profiles offer the option of saving several actions with all settings in the desired processing sequence under a name and selecting them for further processing during runtime. Now it is also possible to link an action profile to a letterhead. If the stationery is selected manually or automatically using the mdx option, the associated action profile is automatically loaded and used for further processing. If <none> is selected for the link, the user can interactively select and load the action profile during runtime using the “Query options” function.

With this possibility, the further processing of the documents can be automated with the help of the iPaper mdx option. Documents can be recognized based on their content and further processing can be controlled and automated via it. The user no longer has to decide each time and select which further work steps have to be carried out for which document.

 

  • New action to overlay PDF forms:
    • With the new action “Form overlay”, a PDF form can be selected which is overlaid on the iPaper result PDF in order to generate a new PDF form.
    • The template form can also be replicated on the following pages. So that the field names in the newly created form are unique, the fields added per page are numbered.
    • The form fields can be filled with data from the document – with text or variables read from the document using the iPaper mdx option.
    • A separate variable is available for each field for the field contents that already exist in the form. Existing field contents can be transferred to the newly created form.

   

  • Updated iPaper PDF printer driver:  The iPaper PDF printer driver has been updated to eDocPrintPro Version 5.0.0. This version now supports and installs the current GhostScript GPL version 9.53.3.
  • Updated iPaper mdx option: The mdx functions integrated in iPaper have been brought up to date with PDFmdx.

Web service applications – own SSL certificate can be selected

Web service applications require an SSL certificate for the encrypted REST / SOAP (https) communication between the service and the clients. The SSL certificate is stored on the computer and can either be a self-created certificate or a certificate from an official certification authority. So far, our applications, which have a web service interface, have automatically installed and used self-created certificates with the setup. It is now also possible to select and use other certificates installed on the computer.

ImageProcessing-FM – PDF, TIFF, JPEG – Image processing via folder monitoring

Features ImageProcessing-FM:

Image processing is used to improve and optimize the quality of scanned documents (PDF, TIFF, JPEG) or to improve the image quality for machine readability in preparation for a subsequent OCR recognition. This allows blank pages and black borders , Holes, lines and impurities are removed. The FM version is installed as a Windows service and can monitor one or more input folders.

PDF2PDFA .NET Converter – Version 1.7.0 – ZUGFeRD 2.1.1 with XRechnungs profile

ZUGFeRD is a hybrid format and contains the structured invoice data in a PDF/A-3 file. This is used for visual presentation, printing and archiving. The structured XML invoice data embedded in it can be read out and processed by the recipient.

The PDF2PDFA converter enables the conversion of existing PDF into ZUGFeRD compliant documents. However, the XML file to be embedded must already be available in accordance with the required standard and is not generated by the PDF2PDFA converter itself.

In the new version of ZUGFeRD 2.1.1, another profile is made available with the XRechnungs profile. This new XRechnungs profile corresponds to the special requirements of the public administration in Germany. Not only does it meet the requirements of the European standard EN16931, it also includes the national business rules and administrative provisions of the German XRechnung standard. The new, dedicated XRechnungs profile clearly distinguishes between requirements in Germany and at European level (e.g. for mandatory fields and information within the invoice).

AutoOCR-CL – Version 1.1.8 – OCR command line application

Innovations AutoOCR-CL Version 1.1.8:

With version 1.1.8 the functions of the command line version have been brought to the same range of functions as those of the AutoOCR server. AutoOCR-CL has been expanded to include image processing, PDF compression and the generation of PDF/A-compliant output files.

  • ImageProcessing: DThis function is included in the standard scope and is used to preprocess scanned documents, especially for the iOCR engine. The image processing already included should preferably be used for the Omnipage Engine. Under no circumstances should both image processing systems be activated as this will reduce the OCR recognition rate.

  • PDFCompressorOptional to license. Is used to generate output files that are as compact and small as possible. In order to achieve good OCR quality, a scan resolution of 200 / 300dpi for color or 300dpi for black and white is required. For the display or the printout, however, e.g. 150dpi. The PDFCompressor enables the compression, the quality settings and the resolution of the images to be adjusted and reduced. A reduction by the PDFCompressor has no influence on the OCR recognition quality.

AutoOCR Version 2.0.30 – JPEG2000 compression creates compact PDF files

Color scans usually produce quite large files. At 300dpi, color, JPEG compression requires approx. 300kB of storage space per page. In order to create the smallest, compact PDF output files possible, the JPEG2000 compression for AutoOCR / iOCR has been improved and an additional parameter has been added. This JPEG2000 compression allows the size of the color images contained in the PDF to be reduced considerably, making the searchable PDF files considerably smaller. The JPEG2000 compression has no influence on the OCR recognition rate.

With JPEG2000, both “lossless” and “lossy” compression are available. Normally one should use the “lossy” (lossy) JPEG2000 compression to create small files – there is an additional parameter (ratio: 1 to 999) with which the compression rate and thus the size and visual quality can be controlled.

In the following table a test was made with different settings for the JPEG / JPEG2000 compression to see what effects these parameters have on the PDF file size. A scan, 300 dpi, 24 bit color, JPEG compression, 7 pages with 2082 kB was used as the initial file.

This shows that with JPEG2000, depending on the parameters, you can achieve a file size reduction of between 30 and 80%.

  • JPEG2000 / lossy / 75-100 = high quality / larger files – 32-49% reduction
  • JPEG2000 / lossy / 125-150 = medium quality / medium file size – 59-65% reduction
  • JPEG2000 / lossy / 200 – 250 = low quality / small files- 74-79% reduction
