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.

EMail Archiver – FileConverterPro MS-Outlookplugin – archives and converts emails as PDF or PDF/A

The EMail Archiver is a plug-in for Microsoft Outlook 2010 / 2013 with which single or multiple marked e-mails or even whole e-mail folders and subfolder with all contained e-mail messages can be converted to PDF or PDF/A. The processing and conversion of the e-mail takes place via the FileConverterPro server which is called encrypted via https either in the local network or external over the internet. The resulting PDF(/A) is deposited in configurable start-folder in the file system. The path as well as the file names get configured and created via variables which are retrieved from the metadata of the e-mail message. Additionally the metadata can be written as a XLS table.

PDF and especially PDF/A-3 are particularly good for the archiving or ISO standardized long-term archiving of e-mails. With PDF/A-3 the original MSG / EML message and the contained attachements get embedded in the PDF container also.

Functions:

  • FCpro login configuration – URL, username, password, FCpro – choose processing profile, connection test with the FCpro server, priority of the jobs.

FileConverterPro (FCpro) – PDF(/A) conversion service with SOAP / REST – web-service

The FileConverterPro is installed as Windows service and offers functions for the conversion of the most important document formats to PDF, PDF/A incl OCR through a web-service interface (SOAP or REST).

For FCpro the same base components as for the FileConverterPDFMerge and AutoOCR are used. Adjustments and extensions are therefor available the same for all these applications.

The web-service interface of FCpro is compatible to the web-service interface of AutoOCR by which all applications are runnable without adjustment with both services. With that e.g. our Alfreso / ifresco Transformer integration can be operated with AutoOCR – for pure OCR processing – as well as with FCpro – to process all document formats incl. OCR.

As well as for AutoOCR also for the FCpro service is a ready-to-use .NET / C# sample application with EXE and source code available. With it the FCpro functions can be tested immediatly or the code can be used as a base for the integration in own applications.

PDF or PDF/A conversion – all important file formats – MS-Office, image, e-mail, HTML and so on get converted to PDF or PDF/A automatically. Normally no other components or MS-Office are required. The conversion takes place directly without additional applications or printer drivers. Optionally also MS-Office 2010/2013 can be used as converter component if available or a “high fidelity” conversion for office formats is required. Image and PDF documents can be made searchable via the integrated iOCR. Optional through a additional license also the Abbyy OCR engine can be used.

Supported source file formats:

  • DOC, DOCX, RTF, TXT,
  • XLS, XLSX,
  • PPT, PPTX, PPS, PPSX,
  • FDF, XFDF (Adobe forms),
  • XML
  • PNG, BMP, TIF, TIFF, JPG, JPEG, GIF
  • ZIP, RAR, 7Z,
  • MSG, EML,
  • PDF,
  • HTM, HTML, MHTML,
  • PMTX (PDFMerge)

Functions – general:

  • MS-Windows service application with SOAP / REST web-service interface for document conversion from Office, PDF, image, HTML, ZIP, MSG and e-mail to PDF or PDF/A. The communication takes place encrypted via HTTPS.
  • Processing profiles – all settings can be preconfigured and retrieved and used through profiles.
  • Direct conversion without usage of additional required original applications.
  • For the “high fidelity” conversion of MS-Office documents also MS-office 2010 / 2013 can be installed and used.
  • Dissolving and conversion of container files – ZIP, 7ZIP, RAR, MSG, EML, PMTX – to build overall files. Structures are displayed as bookmarks, for not convertible documents placeholder sites are inserted
  • images and scans (TIF, JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF, PDF) can be converted to searchable PDF’s with the integrated iOCR – Abbyy OCR engine as option.
  • Parallel processing with configurable amount of processes and priorities – allows the optimal usage of the hardware and guarantees a quick work off.

Special functions:

  • With ZIP/RAR/7Z conatainers all contained and supported documents get extracted automatically, converted and merged to a single PDF overall document. The folder structure contained in the container gets displayed in the PDF output document as the bookmark structure.
  • MSG / EML – e-mails can contain any also interlaced attachements. This documents get extracted also, for not convertible formats placeholder pages get inserted and the structure gets displayed via PDF bookmarks.
  • PDF/A conversion – the FCpro is also a PDF to PDF/A converter. The converted documents can be produced as PDF/A-1b or also with embedded source documents as ISO standardized PDF/A-3b format. Therefor the FCpro service is suited ideally for long-term archiving of documents and e-mails.
  • PMTX – is a XML data format from PDFMerge which contains structure and processing information as well as the documents themselves. From it PDFMerge creates a single overall PDF file which consists of the converted and merged single files. The PDFMerge structure gets displayed via the PDF bookmarks.
  • FDF, XFDF – PDF form data – can be fused with PDF forms and converted to a “normal” PDF.
  • Stamps, watermarks, stationery – can be configured and applied
  • Intelligent OCR of PDF – PDF documents get analyzed page per page if OCR is required or not – pages which already contain text don’t get OCR processed again, bookmarks and links stay preserved. This saves time and resources and increases the quality.

Functions – PDF-export settings – part of the processing profiles

  • Infilling of PDF profile fields with fixed values or variables (origin values, profile name, date, time, PC name, user, file name, application, pages, PDF-level, user variables)
  • Web-optimization (yes / no)
  • Preserve existing bookmarks (yes / no)
  • Settings for opening the PDF
  • Security settings – password-opening, system, restrictions
  • Pagination – position, start, offset, text (current page, pages), font, color, masking underlying area
  • Stationery / PDF watermarks – underlay / overlay, file selection, opacity (%), position
  • Text stamp – one or more stamps, text or variables (like profile fields incl. bookmarks), start, offset, font, style (incl. outline), size, color, opacity (%), angle

Available FCpro applications / clients:

The FCpro server provides its functionality through a SOAP /REST – web-service interface to other applications. The following applications and integrations are available for the FCpro or use its functions:

1.)    FileConverterPro – WCF service sample – this client application is additionally installed with the FCpro setup. With it all function availabel via the web-service can be tried and tested. Beside the EXE is this application also available as C# source code to be able to use FCpro functions from own applications quick and easily.

2.)    DropConvert – convert documents to PDF(/A) via drag & drop or folder monitoring. DropConvert is a Windows client application which communicates with the FCpro service to convert documents which are dragged into the always “on top” displayed “DropZone” or into a monitored folder to PDF or PDF/A. The result documents are transfered back to the client and deposited in a configurable output folder. The FCpro server is called https encrypted through the local net or also external through the internet.

3.)    EMail Archiver – The EMail Archiver is a MS Outlook 2010 / 2013 plug-in with which single or multiple marked e-mails or even whole e-mail folders and subfolders with all contained e-mail masseges can be converted to PDF or PDF/A directly out of MS Outlook. The processing and conversion of the e-mail runs via the FCpro server which is called encrypted via https on the local network or external through the internet. The resulting PDF(/A)’s get deposited in a configured start-folder and path into the file system with the variable information extracted from the e-mail.

PDF/A and especially PDF/A-3 are particularly good for the archiving or for ISO standardized long-term archiving of e-mails. With PDF/A-3 the original MSG / EML messages get embedded also in the PDF container.

4.)    Alfresco / ifresco – Transformer – the installation of the “ifresco Transformer” AMP’s for Alfresco allows the PDF(/A) conversion and the OCR processing through the FileConverterPro server. If only OCR is required the AutoOCR server can be used instead. The processing of the supported document formats to PDF, PDF/A and/or with OCR is then available via Java, JavaScript, REST, the “transform” action through folders and in Alfresco Share as “transform” document action.

FCpro – versions, licensing, scope

The FileConverterPro is available in a basic version as well as in an extended version incl. PDF/A and OCR. With the extended version optionally the Abby OCR engine can be licensed additionally to the iOCR. Abbyy licenses are available page (monthly or overall volume) or processor dependent. The FCpro standard license is per server but there are also “Enterprise” for any amount of servers per company and “OEM” licenses for the integration through developers in their own applications.

Also containing in the FCpro server is the – WCF service sample application incl. source code and the MS-Windows application “DropConvert” – this can be installed and used on any workplace without restrictions.

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.
  • Supported document formats: DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX, PPS, PPSX, RTF, TXT, HTML, MHT, XML, TIF, JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF, ZIP, 7Zip, RAR, MSG, EML, PDF, FDF, XFDF, PMT, PMTX
  • 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
