iPaper 3.x – MDX Option – Product Video available – Read content and use as variables

For iPaper version 3.x there is the “MDX – MetaDataXtraction” add-on module. Key features of the PDFmdx application have been integrated into iPaper. Documents can be recognized on the basis of content, the corresponding stationery can be selected, or field, template and layout definitions can be used to read out information from the document. Fields / variables are filled with values which can be used later on in the iPaper actions. Fixed information or information read from the document can also be “stamped” on the PDF as text or as 1D / 2D / QR barcode.

iPaper MDX applications:

  • Automatically select the stationery to be used on the basis of the document contents.
  • For serial letters or document stacks it can be recognized at which page a new document begins to select the stationery again or to start again with the first stationery page.
  • Read e-mail addresses from the document and use them to send the document immediately.
  • Documents can be recognized on the basis of criteria, fields can be read out of the document via layout masks, variables can be assigned and used for iPaper actions such as e.g. e-mail, save as, program call and so on.
  • QR code barcodes (e.g. For quick transfers), 1D / 2D barcodes or text stamps can be applied to vouchers. It is also possible to assign read field contents from the document.

iPaper – AutoPrint action – Printer with / without not printable margins

If it occurs that with the iPaper action “AutoPrint” the printout is moved a little to the right and down and therefor not the whole document is printed on the paper, this is a quite easy problem to solve.

There are printers which are able to print to the edge of the paper. With that the print-origin (0,0 – coordinate) is located exactly at the top-left corner of the paper. Many or nearly all office or laser printers however have an about 5mm big not printable area all around the paper. With this printers the print-origin isn’t located at the top-left corner but about 5 x 5 mm right under it.

To, depending on the type of the printer, print the site correctly and in scale there is an option to control the print-origin. If this parameter isn’t set correctly there will be an offset and the top-left border is incorrect.

The Option “Borderless” has to be activated on printers with not printable margins. If it isn’t activated the printout will be moved to the right and down and eventually cut off on the right side and the bottom. If a printer is able to print to the edge the option has to be deactivated.

Additionally there is an update (DLL) – it will be included in the next iPaper Version – with the possibility to declare an negative offset for the position of the printout on the paper. With this the printout can be moved to the left or up independent of the “Borderless” option.
