eDocPrintPro – STARFACE Fax Plugin available

STARFACE is an award winning IP telephone system that is in use in many companies. The fax printer driver installed with the STARFACE client is based on our free eDocPrintPro printer driver. Communication with the STARFACE telephone system takes place via a plug-in. When installing the STARFACE Client you can select wether the “Fax printer” should be installed or not. If this option is checked, then the eDocPrintPro PDF printer will be installed, an additional “STARFACE Fax” printer will be automatically created, configured and the STARFACE Fax plug-in will be installed. For this additional printer configuration changes are not possible, because the user interface is locked.

However, there is now a stand-alone STARFACE Fax plug-in setup that allows more flexibility:

  • Independent of the STARFACE Client setup, the latest eDocPrintPro version can always be used.
  • The STARFACE Fax plug-in can also be used together with other eDocPrintPro plug-ins; for example to add a stationery with the “AddOverlay Plugin” when sending faxes.
  • You can also use only a single PDF printer with selection of plug-in sets.
  • The fax printer can have any name.

eDocPrintPro free / PDF/A & ZUGFeRD Version 3.28.3 available

Innovations eDocPrintPro Version 3.28.3:

  • New plugin INI parameter – “Temporary=yes” – if this parameter is set in the INI file of a plugin, the PDF file will be created first in the %TEMP% folder. Then all plugins are processed and only then the PDF file is moved to the configured or selected target folder. This prevents the PDF file from immediately appearing in the destination folder, the processing with the plugins happening in the destination folder, and the user or another program already opening or locking the PDF file before the plugin processing has been completed.
  • Selected ESFX – profile will be loaded immediately – Previously the ESFX profile hat to be selected and then the “Load” button had to be pressed so that the settings were read in and adopted. Now it is sufficient to select another profile from the list to load and activate the settings. The “Load” button has been removed.

eDocPrintPro – Toolbox – Documentation of the tools installed with eDocPrintPro

Together with the eDocPrintPro printer driver, the applications eDocPrintPro Tool, Manage Settings and ApplyESF are installed as well.

The eDocPrintPro Tool is available both as a bootable application with user interface and as a command line application. This allows you to create additional printers with different names. In addition, ESFX profiles can be loaded and the user interface of the printer locked.

ApplyESF is a command line application with which the targeted ESFX profiles can be loaded and applied to the printer. This can be particularly useful to select a different settings profile, if the user interface is locked.

With Manage Settings, the default settings of the eDocPrintPro can be configured or settings can be set as unchangeable.

eDocPrintPro – Windows 10 – Update – Printer driver exists several times with the same name

When installing a new version of the eDocPrintPro printer driver under Windows 10 there is a special feature that should be considered:

If an eDocPrintPro printer driver has already been installed on a Windows 10 computer, you should first uninstall the existing version when installing a (new) version. Then the “greyed out” eDocPrintPro printer remaining after the deinstallation should be removed manually from the printer list and only then should the driver be installed again or as a new version.

If this printer remaining after uninstallation is not deleted, and the driver is reinstalled, another eDocPrintPro printer will be created each time, resulting in two or more printers with the same name.

We will try to fix this in the next version.

eDocPrintPro free – Version 3.28.0 available

eDocPrintPro version 3.28.0 now uses the latest GhostScript version 9.26. Likewise, some minor bug fixes have been made.

With the ZUGFeRD options there is a new selection to select the ZUGFeRD level which is entered in the PDF metadata as information. The 3 levels – BASIC, COMFORT and EXTENDED are available for selection.

eDocPrintPro – Use custom page size & page size of the program

For the eDocPrintPro settings there is the option “Use page format of the program”. If this option is active then the page format specified by the printer driver will not be used but the application eg. MS Word controls which page format & alignment is used. However, this only works as long as the page format specified in the application is also available as “Paper Format / Size”.

So if you use a “custom page format” in MS-Word that does not exist in the list of existing page formats, eg. 17 x 24 cm – this format can not be accepted by the printer driver – even if the option “Apply page format from application” is active. In such a case, the A4 format is used.

In order for the automatic selection to work even with a new, so far non-existent “user-defined page format”, an entry for this paper format must be created in the eDocPrintPro printer driver.
