eDocPrintPro free and PDF/A-1b, 2b, 3b & ZUGFeRD Version 3.25.3 available

Create several printersWith the “eDocPrintPro Tool”, additional additional printers with any names can be created.

With version 3.25.2, there were 2 errors that were fixed with version 3.25.3:

  1. When the first additional printer was created, a new printer monitor application was created and started automatically. This additional printer monitor, however, has 100% loaded the computer until the restart.
  2. Only a second additional printer could be created and no more. The other printers were created, but the required monitor application was not automatically started and not entered in the registry. Thus these printers were present in the printer list, but could not be used because no output file was created or the save under dialog was not high.

Create several eDocPrintPro printers – please note:

  1. The default printer created by the setup – “EDocPrintPro” must not be renamed or removed
  2. Additional printers can be created with any names and settings – The program “eDocPrintPro Tool” must be used to create this printer.
  3. For each additionally created printer a <print name> Monitor.exe is created, started and entered in the registry under “RUN”.
  4. If no PDF file is created for one of the created printers or if there is no “Save as” dialog, check whether the xxxMonitor.exe is present and started, or if the start has been entered correctly under the RUN key in the registry.

eDocPrintPro free / PDF/A-1b, 2b, 3b & ZUGFeRD Version 3.25.2 available

Innovations eDocPrintPro Version 3.25.2:

  • The current GhostScript AGPL version 9.21 is supported
  • The routines for the generation of PDF / A-1b, 2b, 3b and ZUGFeRD formats have been completely re-implemented.
  • In addition to ZUGFeRD XML, other files can also be embedded in the ZUGFeRD PDF. Only with ZUGFeRD option.
  • New version of the eDocPrintPro SDK 3.25 available to use the extensions from your own applications.

ZUGFeRD - neben dem XML lassen sich zusätzliche Anhänge einfügen

  • All plugins available for the eDocPrintPro can now also be used with the PDF/A & ZUGFeRD variant.

Depending on the plugin, it may be necessary to perform the action before the PDF/A or ZUGFERD processing. In order to apply a stamp or to deposit a stationery and only then to carry out the PDF/A and TRUE conversion as otherwise the conformity would be destroyed. On the other hand there are plugin actions, which can only be done after the PDF/A or ZUGFeRD conversion. Create a signature or send the created PDF file by e-mail. In order to control this, the INI file of the plugin provides the possibility to determine when (PRE, POST, LAST) the plugin action is to be executed.

Process=PREThe plugin is run before PostScript to PDF conversion. The plugin can be used to prepare folders or to insert commands into the Postscript code.

Process=POSTThe plugin is called after the conversion from PS to PDF and before an eDocPrintPro add-on postprocessing (SWF, PDF / A or ZUGFeRD) is executed. Required, eg. for the AddOverlay or PDFExport plugin

Process=LASTThe plugin is called after the eDocPrintPro add-on postprocessing (SWF, PDF/A or ZUGFeRD). Required, eg. for the EMail as well as signature plugin

If no add-on postprocessing (SWF, PDF / A or ACCESSORY) is executed, POST and LAST have the same meaning. If the “Process” parameter is not specified, the default value is Process = POST.

The INI files of the installed plugins can be found in C: \ Program Files \ Common Files \ MAYComputer \ eDocPrintPro \ Plugins.

GhostScript 9.21 Setup

Autostart – Run the application automatically when it starts – iPaper / eDocPrintPro

Some of our applications, e.g. iPaper.exe or other eDocPrintProMonitor.exe must be started automatically when the computer is started. If this is not done, however, you can check it yourself and correct it.

Normally, applications that are automatically started should be registered here:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

If a 32bit application is to be started automatically under a 64bit drive system, this is registered here:

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Example iPaper:

eDocPrintPro Tools – Version 3.24.8 available

Innovations eDocPrintPro Tools Version 3.24.8:

The tools eDocPrintProUtil.exe and ApplyEsf.exe have been modified. The file extensions for eDocPrintPro profile files have changed in an eDocPrintPro predecessor version from ESF to ESFX, which means that an adaptation was required. With the new tools, ESFX profiles can now be loaded interactively or loaded and activated via command line parameters.

The parameters / LOAD and / APPLY have been added to ApplyEsf.exe. With / LOAD the profile is only selected, but not loaded, while / APPLY selects the profile and loads it at the same time.

  • eDocPrintProUtil.exe Command line example to create 2 additional printers, load and activate an ESFX profile, and lock the user interface of the printer.

  • Custom formats for AutoCAD LT 2017: AutoCAD LT can only use custom sheet sizes if they are created as standard formats. This is not in accordance with Microsoft’s specification. In order to be able to use such individual page formats with AutoCAD LT 2017, we now simply save the custom formats under the standard formats. This solves the problem.

  • New routines for text extraction: There is an option to save the text from the printed document as a file in addition to the PDF / Image. For this function a new toolkit is used for PDF documents. GhostScript is used to extract the text for image documents.
  • File overwrite – message that the action is not possible: Output can be configured to overwrite an existing file. If this file was opened or blocked by another application, the application has not received a confirmation that the action could not be executed. With the current version the user gets now anyway feedback to be confirmed.

Note: Momentan erfolgt nach der DropZone Plugin Verarbeitung der PDF Datei keine nach gelagerte Aktion aus den eDocPrintPro “Aktion” Einstellungen d.h. es wird falls in den Druckereinstellungen konfiguriert keine verknüpfte Anwendung gestartet, die Ergebnisdatei nicht automatisch in einem Ausgabe-Ordner abgelegt bzw. auch keine Kommandozeilen Anwendung gestartet. Diese Aktionen müssen über entsprechend installierte Plugin´s durchgeführt werden – z.b. können die kostenlosen Plugins – “Copy to folder” oder “Aktion ausführen” dafür verwendet werden. Mit der nächsten Version werden wir die konfigurierten Aktions-Einstellungen des eDocPrintPro Treibers auch über die DropZone verwalten und ausführen.

eDocPrintPro – Version 3.24.4

InnovationsVersion 3.24.4:

Using eDocPrintPro from a Windows Service – Previously it was only possible to use the printer driver interactiveAs of version 3.24.4 the driver incl. the configured PlugIns can also be addressed from a Windows Service. However, some peculiarities must be observed:

  • The service must run under a user account and the driver and the associated plugins must be configured under this user.
  • There may come up no dialogues – Everything must be configured “Silent”If a dialog comes up so will the processing get stuckbecause the dialogue can not be confirmed.

To test this function a we created a sample program, which can be made single copies on a service to the selected printer driver.
