Merge2Print – Merge individual PDF files into a total PDF file for printing

Merge2Print is an interactive as well as a command line application to merge several single PDF files from one input folder to one or more total PDF files in an output folder. The individual files are merged in alphabetical order by name. The name of the ouput file can be configured via variables – counter, date, time. There is an additional parameter to set the maximum number of pages an output file should contain. This makes it possible to create PDF “print files” with a given maximum page number. A total PDF file can be used to ensure that the documents/pages are output to a printer in the order they are intended.

Merge2Print features:

  • Merge single PDF files to total PDF file(s)
  • Interactive / Command line application
  • Processing via input/output folder
  • Delete source files – Yes/No
  • Max. pages for total PDF file – 0 = no max. pages
  • Counter, date, time as variables for the output file

PDFMerge – creates complex PDF – overall documents from various source documents

The creation of complex overall documents on a basis of PDF requires without corresponding tools a multitude of manual single steps and software components.

PDFMerge combines any required steps and components in a single integrated application and creates – based on an automated PDF conversion of the source documents at the push of a button – a document equipped with many additional functions.

  • Drafts / templates – are used for the structuring of documents and quick actualization. They can be produced interactive, used again and can be produced as XML from an own application also. 2 formats are available – the PMT as pure XML format as well as the PMTX which also embeds the source documents and therefor doesn’t need any external references on the documents.
  • Automatic PDF or PDF/A conversion – any important file format – MS-Office, Image, E-Mail, HTML and so on get automatically converted to PDF or PDF/A. On default no additional components or MS-Office are required. The conversion is done directly without any additional applications or printer drivers. Optional also, if available, MS-Office 2010 / 2013 can be used for the conversion. Image and PDF documents can be made searchable via the integrated iOCR engine. Optional also the Abbyy OCR engine is available.
  • Document preview and miniature views: the single documents can be converted to PDF immediatly after the insertion and are therefor viewable via the integrated PDF / Imageviewer.
  • Processing of container formats: container formats like ZIP, 7ZIP, RAR as well as the e-mail formats MSG and EML can not only contain one document but also a multitude of subdocuments and with ZIP, 7ZIP, and RAR they can also have an own folder structure. E-Mails can contain one or more attachements which can be container files themselves. Container formats can therefor be interlaced in any depth. PDFMerge is able to dissolve these structures automatically, convert the contained files and display this structure correctly again via PDF Bookmarks. With that the original order and structure is displayed and preserved.
  • Read in of existing folder structures from the file system: existing folder structures can be read in from the file system or be implemented via drag & drop. The names and structures get taken over and can be edited afterwards.
  • PDF-export parameter – allow to use a multitude of funtions on the created PDF overall document automatically – fill PDF meta data information, parameters for opening the document, PDF-password, PDF-function restriction, pagination, PDF stationery overlay or underlay, apply text stamps. Intended functions for the future: index and front page. The settings can be saved combined and used again.
  • Command line call / silent processing: the PMT /PMTX template files can be loaded via commandline parameter. With that the processing can also be run “silent” without user interface.
  • PMTX – SOAP / REST – webservice processing: The PMTX files created with PDFMerge can also be processed with the FileConverterPro. The FileConverterPro is a central converter service installable as Windows-service, which is called via a SOAP / REST interface.
  • Filter at the insertion from the file system: filter can be defined (with * and ?) to automatically exclude and don’t read in specific names and extensions at the insertion from the file system.
  • Search in the available structure: document names, paths and extensions can be searched in the tree structure and afterwards deleted from it targeted via the search result list.
  • Processing protected PDF’s: password protected PDF documents are not processable without the “open password” – These files can therefor be searched and found directly. The once captured password gets saved encrypted and doesn’t have to be inserted again afterwards. With that also protected PDF files can be processed.
  • Insert placeholder pages: if a file can’t be converted – e.g. because of a defective file or a container file e.g. an e-mail contains an attachement with a not supported file format – a preedited or an automatically generated placeholder page can be inserted.

PDFMerge – which functions are implemented?

  • PDF converter – to convert various document formats to PDF
  • PDF/A converter – to create PDF/A-1b or PDF/A-3b
  • OCR Engine – to create searchable PDF’s
  • Merge – to create overall documents from single files
  • Viewer – for the preview of the converted documents
  • PDF stationery overlay / underlay
  • Pagination and stamps

PDFMerge highlights:

  • creates complex and extensive overall PDF documents from various original documents
  • quick conversion and merging also with extensive documents with thousands of pages
  • automated PDF and PDF/A document conversion of many formats and without external applications
  • integrated OCR engine creates searchable PDF-documents from images and scans
  • template files enable a fast actualization when changes occur
  • PDF bookmarks get automatically created from the document structures
  • processes container files (e.g. ZIP, MSG with attachements and so on – also interlaced) and contains their structure
  • insertion of placeholder pages when errors occur and for not convertible formats

PDFMerge range of use:

  • Combine multiple documents to an consistent PDF overall document, as well as actualizing it quick and easy
  • Project components and records as PDF overall documents – also protected and encrypted – for impartion, sending, archiving or for taking it out of the office
  • Combine documents from different sources, which are created and edited from various authors / teams or departments.
  • Long-term archiving of documents, projects and records – PDF and PDF/A enable the independence from source applications and formats. Full text search, display and printing are therefor also possible without the original application. The original documents themselves can be embedded in the PDF document as PDF attachements. With PDF/A-3 there is even an ISO standardized format available.
  • Product papers and project offers in the technical area, price lists and manualstechnical documentation /factory manuals, replacement part documentation
  • Reports, company reports and presentations for printing or distribution to merge them to an overall document from various sources

ifresco Profiler – scan, edit, OCR, barcode, capture metadata, Alfresco integration

The ifresco Profiler provides important, easy-to-use page oriented document processing functions for PDF and image document, on any workplace. It enables the possibility of quickly and easily storing documents with metadata with individual and specific profiling masks in Alfresco as searchable PDF’s. Area OCR with an integrated OCR Engine, creating of searchable PDF’s on export with the integrated OCR or extern AutoOCR Server, barcode recognition for file names and document split, export to folder, as e-mail attachment or via installed plugin’s to Alfresco together with metadata, are some essential features of the Software.

The application consists of 2 components – the profiler basic software, which contains all general functions, and one or more installable plugins. These plugins represent the interface to Alfresco and allow to use individually to the requirements and field of application adjusted profiling masks. The complete logic for the metadata, filing structure and naming is displayed in a plugin.

ifresco Profiler base:

  • Processes PDF and image files – black & white, grayscale, color – without having to keep an eye on file format and color – all functions are implemented across.
  • Integrated scan function to scan documents via local connected scanners. The scan settings can be chosen directly by preconfigured scan-profiles.
  • Capturing of documents out of folders – display as document list e.g. for multifunction devices, network scanners wiht scan to folder function or via printer driver created, also as to process via e-mail received documents.
  • Quick changing of the document names – with automatic selection of the next file in the list, after finish of the change.
  • Area OCR by local integrated OCR engine, to assign file names.
  • Deleting / cutting out areas
  • Page preview – zoom, paging, turning – as well as thumbnail miniatures of the whole document
  • Page oriented document processing – turn pages left/right, delete pages, page moving in the thumbnail view via drag&drop.
  • split total document – at marked pages, after x pages, after barcode.
  • Merge single documents to a total one – specifying the order, automatic deleting of the single documents.
  • Export – into a folder, send as e-mail attachment or store into Alfresco with metadata via profiling – in the native format as PDF image or PDF-OCR
  • Within the export – generating of searchable PDF-OCR documents by the local integrated iOCR engine or by the via web-service integrated AutoOCR Server with Abbyy OCR
  • Intelligent OCR processing – only image pages get OCR processed – normal PDF pages get taken over without changes .

ifresco Profiler plugins:

The profile form and the logic of the profiling for the deposit of the documents in Alfresco gets realized from the ifresco Profiler via plugins. Because every company has it’s own data model and deposit logic, the plugins get developed and implemented individually after specifications. Here it’s possible to fall back to already realized plugins. For testing and illustration of the possibilities there is a demo plugin as well as already realized plugins available.

  • installable plugins – for profiling and capturing of metadata for filing of documents in Alfresco.
  • One or more plugins can be installed, chosen and with that, also switched to other Alfresco servers – each plugin contains its own individual logic for the profiling as stand-alone installed .NET / C# application which inserts itself into the ifresco Profiler base framework and uses its functions.
  • parallel displaying of the profile mask and the document preview with the capturing of the metadata.
  • free programmable logic and functions of the profiling mask with e.g. extern XML template rules with dynamic fields to always build the name / title the same, access to external data sources – MS-XLS, SQL, web-service (e.g. SugarCRM), linked tables and pre-assignment of fields with values of the table, type ahead part-string search over single or combined fields, usage of Alfresco categories as lookup’s, assignment of existing Alfresco tags, automatic new applyment of tags, automatic creation of the Alfresco folder structure as well as the file names out of profile field values, searching for folders in Alfresco, counter via web-service, stamping of the document with informations from the metadata before the upload, searching for in Alfresco available documents and takeover of profile values and so on.
  • interactive processing – with OCR and upload or alternative
  • background / batch processing – for PDF-OCR conversion and Alfresco upload – the user is already able to continue working while the OCR processing and the Alfresco upload takes place in the background.
  • preserve existing profile values / delete mask
  • automatic loading of the next document in the list – processed document gets deleted ore moved into the archiving area after upload.
