PDFmdx Version 3.2.7 available

Innovations PDFmdx Version 3.2.7:

  • Multiline Edit Box for Barcode- and Text-stamp – Create QR code for payment instructionsUp to now, only a single-line string could be specified for the text and barcode stamping. CR / LF was not consideredNow there is a multi-line input field for capturing the texts. Line breaks (CR / LF) and blank lines are transferred correctly to the stamps and barcodesNow QR codes can also be generated for the creation of SEPA payment instructions – See QR-Code “Zahlen mit Code”The basis for this QR code is a standard of the European Payments Council. Many banks offer eBanking apps for smartphones with the functionality of which such QR code can be read. The information is automatically transferred to a transfer.


  • Identify the same receiversUp to now, every PDF file created could only be sent in a separate email message. Now it is also possible, when processing a job, to collect all documents with the same recipient address and send in only one message. The recipient receives an email, which contains all documents, instead of several mails with only one attachment.

  • Remove charactersSo far there have been only the function to remove at the beginning and end of a field read certain characters. Now there is also the possibility to remove one or more fixed characters from the whole extracted string – no matter where they are.

  • Replace several characters at onceThere was already the function to define several characters which should be replaced.However, the function was not executed “one at a time” but one after the other. Thus, for example, not possible to convert 1.234.56 to 1.234.56. This has been changed and the function is executed with all defined replacement characters at once, which makes such conversions possible now.

  • XLSX instead of XLS – as well as sheet name configurableThe MS-Excel XLS format has been replaced by the XLSX format. The sheet name can now be assigned freely. Previously, the sheet name in the XLS was fixed with “PDFmdx” fixed.

  • Run Job weekly – Time-controlled execution of a job – In addition to the “Daily” option, there is now also the option “Weekly”


  • Email Address Search – Document / Page – Troubleshooting – In addition to reading e-mail addresses via fields, there is also the possibility to search all e-mail addresses from the document or on certain pages and to use it for sending.

  • HTML Body – Embed images –  Troubleshooting HTML EMail Sharing – For some EMail Clients / Web-based EMail services (eg, if images were embedded in the body, the message was displayed as HTML code / text and thus not correctly displayed .

EMail Archiver for FCpro – Version 4.4.4

Innovations Version 4.4.4:

  • Save settings in the registrySo far, all configuration settings have been stored in XML files. Now there is also the possibility to specify during the installation whether these are stored as before or in the registry of the computer (standard).

The setup writes certain general presets to the key


When MS-Outlook is started for the first time, these general settings are copied into the local user’s key and administered there for the logged-on user.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\May Computer\EMailArchiver

  • The configuration can also be set to “Read-only”so the user himself can not make any configuration changes and only use the predefined profiles.


Name: “read-only” value:”yes”

  • ToRegistry.exe – To facilitate the transition, there is the tool “ToRegistry.exe”. This allows existing XML configuration files to be read out and transferred to the registry.

  1. Transmits all settings from the Config folder specified in the SettingsFolderInfo.xml file to the registry
  2. Transmits a single selected configuration or login file (XML) into the registry – The type is automatically detected and written to the correct node.
  3. If the application is run as an administrator, you can select whether the configuration is transferred to “HKEY_CURRENT_USER” or “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE”. If “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE” is used, the key “use-registry” is also set to “yes”.

PDF2Printer – New Version 2.0.2

What’s New PDF2Printer Version 2.0.2:

  • New PDF printing engine delivers improved quality when printing 1D and 2D barcodes – Barcodes can be generated and displayed in PDF via barcode fonts, lines or graphics. Certain label printers, however, had problems with the printing engine used so far and the prints were out of focus or had “stapling effects” on the black edges. Especially with 1D / 2D barcodes, this can lead to the barcode recognition no longer working reliably. This problem has now been fixed with the new PDF printing engine – sharp edges are now always generated and printed.
  • New function – print mode / scaling: Now you have the possibility to control the scaling of the prints as with the Adobe Reader
    • Fit to page – optimizes the printout – preserves the page ratio – adjusts the print horizontally or vertically to the maximum of the page.
    • Current size = 1: 1 – The printing is done with 100% – there is no adjustment to the page size
    • Decrease to page – If a print is smaller than the page, the printout will be 100%, If the print is larger than the page, the print will be reduced to fit the page.
    • Scaling (%) – Standard = 100% – Here you can adjust the size of the print up or down over a% set.
  • New function – Alignment: Alignment can be either automatic or fixed.
    • Automatic – For example, An A4 horizontal format for printing automatically to A4 high. The sheet is thus optimally utilized. Scaling is also not necessary in this case.
    • Portrait / Landscape – The print always takes place in the configured page orientation – The printout is adjusted to the page. An A4 aspect ratio is reduced so that it can be printed on an A4 portrait page.
