FileConverterPro 1.0.97 – New Version

Innovations FCpro Version 1.0.97:

  • DWG to PDF – option to repair the data structure. Some DWG files can only be converted to PDF after the data structure has been repaired. If DWG files cannot be converted, this option should be set. However, this increases the processing time.

  • Convert individual pages / page area from MS Office documents: When converting MS Office files, there is now the option of converting only individual pages or a page area. The new UploadJobEx9 REST function is available for this. this supports both “direct” and “MS Office” conversion.

/UploadJobEx9?ext={ext}&settingsName={settingsName}&gfiName={gfiName}&maxPage={maxPage}&outExts={outExts}&label={label}&priority={priority}&pageFrom={pageFrom}&pageTo={pageTo}

pageFrom must be <= pageTo and pageFrom >= 1. example: pageFrom=1 and pageTo=2, – pages 1 and 2 are converted. If all pages are to be processed then PageFrom = 0 and PageTo = 0 must be set. The gfiname can remain empty.

  • Download source file: Previously, only the files generated from the uploaded source file (PDF, TXT, JPEG, PNG) could be downloaded as a result of the processing. Now there is a web service function to download the original file again. The files uploaded for processing are retained for a set period of time and can therefore also serve as a backup if, for example the original file has already been deleted on the client.

GetResultEx(jobGuid, -1, false) returns the source file. The second parameter is the parameter for the result index that starts with 0. If the function is called with -1, the original file is returned. The third parameter is “removeFile”. However, this has no meaning when index = -1. The original file cannot be deleted using this web service function. The jobs and the associated files are automatically deleted by the server after a configured number of days.
GetResultExt(jobGuid, -1) provides the file extension of the original file, e.g .: docx, msg, etc.

  • Display / call of the JobID: The files get a unique GUI-ID when uploading, which can be used to query the status and download the result files. The jobs are stored on the server in folders that are numbered using the job ID. To assign a folder on the FCpro server to a job, the server job (folder) ID is now also returned and displayed when the job is queried.

  • Reprocessing of canceled jobs: As long as processing has not started for a job (status = uploaded), processing can be canceled. Jobs whose processing has already started (status = processing) can no longer be canceled. The web service function is now available to trigger the reprocessing of canceled jobs ReprocessCancelledJobs().

  

  • Troubleshooting – Jobs / Temporary folder cleanup: If other than the default folders (work, job, temp folder) were configured, they have not been cleaned automatically after the preset time. This has been fixed.

PDFmdx Version 3.9.0

Innovations of PDFmdx Version 3.9.0:

  • Manual backup of templates: Function to trigger the backup of all or individual templates manually. The backup files (* .pmdx) are stored in a configurable folder and differentiated by their name consisting of template / date / time.

 

  • Via conditions, move files to another folder: This means that files that are not to be processed can be sorted out via conditions before the actual PDFmdx processing or “redirected” to another processing folder. A normal template with conditions is used for this. If a condition is met, the file is moved from the incoming folder directly to the configured target folder without further PDFmdx processing.

  • The PDF2PrinterPrint integration has been revised and expanded: The selection of the variables for the control takes place directly via the fields of a template. In addition to the printer, the paper chute can now also be selected via the document content.

  • Variables for the file name of the metadata file (CSV, XLS …): Instead of a fixed name, all available variables can now be used.

  • Vertical dynamic fields can now be used not only for group but also for subgroup fields.

  • Field position is retained and can be restored: If a different PDF template file was selected for a layout, it could happen that the positioning / size of the fields on the template “got lost”. Eg: if the new PDF had fewer pages or fields were removed and The field position and size were not retained. The fields had to be repositioned and the readout area had to be redefined. Now this information is saved in the data structure, even if the field is no longer positioned on a page the field position and size can be restored via “Add area”.

 

  • Store file / folder link in XLS: A new option allows you to store a link in the XLS output file under the columns for “% OUTPATH%”, “% OUTFILENAME%” and “% OUTFOLDER%”. This means that the PDF file or folder can be opened directly by clicking on the cell in the XLS.

  • Update of the PDFCompressor, PDFSign, PDF2PDFA basic components to the current status.
  • The final processing for PDF/A conversion, PDF compression and PDF signature is now no longer in the output folder, but in a temporary folder. The PDF file is only moved to the final destination folder after all processing steps have been completed.
  • Bug fixes: PDFmdx editor: embed email settings for all images, send email, email filter options were not saved, no text could be read from PDF files created via iPaper, metadata file was not generated if no fields were positioned on the layout.

FileConverterPro 1.0.93 – New version

Innovations in FCpro version 1.0.93:

  • Image processing integrated: Until now, individual image processing functions were part of the OCR engines. Now all image processing functions are generally available for all image to PDF conversions (with or without OCR) via independent ImageProcessing component, regardless of the OCR processing and the selected OCR engine. See overview of functions >>>.

 

  • Digital signature – PDFSign component integrated: By integrating the PDFSign component, the generated PDF and PDF/A files can also be signed, confirmed, encrypted, provided with a password and restrictions. A time stamp can also be applied. The PDF signature can be visible or invisible. All signature settings are managed via profiles. In order to be able to use the PDF signature quickly and easily, you can create your own certificates directly from the component. As the FileConverterPro runs as a service, it must be ensured that the certificates for the (user) account used are also available and accessible. Like PDF/A, PDFCompressor and OCR, the PDFSign functionality is an option that must also be licensed. If there is no valid license, the PDF will be signed, but a demo stamp will be added. See overview of functions >>>

  • Update of the basic components (PDF2PDFA, OCR, PDFCompressor) to the current status.
  • Images embedded in the body of email messages are not processed as attachments. No additional pages are attached to the PDF for this.
  • When rendering encrypted PDF files, AES 256 encrypted PDF files can now also be processed.
  • In addition to the resolution, the image compression of the generated images can now be configured for PDF/A rendering.

  • New REST/SOAP web service function to query jobs with multiple status values at once:
    • For REST GetAllJobs2?status=5,6,7…,
    • For SOAP GetAllJobs2?status is an int array (int[]) that is rendered in C#.
