The eDocPrintPro version 3.29.0 now also supports the current e-billing standards – ZUGFeRD 2.0 / EN 16931 and Factur-X 1.0. These are based on PDF/A-3 where the billing records are embedded as an XML file in the PDF as a file attachment.

Features:

  • Selection of e-billing standards – ZUGFeRD 1.0 / 2.0 / EN 16931 / Factur-X 1.0
  • Selection of a profile supported by the standard (MINIMUM, BASIC WL, BASIC, EN 16931, EXTENDED)
  • Use predefined (path, name) XML / select XML via file dialog
  • Automatically delete XML after embedding in PDF (Yes/No)

Requirement: A XML file valid according to the selected standard and profile must already be ready before printing. The XML file is not extracted from the print data.

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.

PDF2PDFA .NET Converter Component – Version 1.1.0

Conversion to PDF/A-1a, 2a, 3a:

As of version 1.1.0, PDF files can now also be converted to PDF/A-1a, 2a and 3a. It should be noted, however, that not every PDF file can be converted and that an automatic conversion is only possible or only meaningful if the input file already contains the required structure information / tags. For example a PDF file can be created from MS-Word via the “Save as / PDF” function which already contains this required additional structure.

     

ZUGFeRD – Level configurable:

The ZUGFeRD standard supports 3 different levels – BASIC, COMFORT and EXTENDED. There is now a parameter that can be used to specify which level corresponds to the XML to be embedded. This information is then also transferred to the PDF metadata.

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.
