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.

eDocPrintPro – Windows 10 – Update – Printer driver exists several times with the same name

When installing a new version of the eDocPrintPro printer driver under Windows 10 there is a special feature that should be considered:

If an eDocPrintPro printer driver has already been installed on a Windows 10 computer, you should first uninstall the existing version when installing a (new) version. Then the “greyed out” eDocPrintPro printer remaining after the deinstallation should be removed manually from the printer list and only then should the driver be installed again or as a new version.

If this printer remaining after uninstallation is not deleted, and the driver is reinstalled, another eDocPrintPro printer will be created each time, resulting in two or more printers with the same name.

We will try to fix this in the next version.

eDocPrintPro free – Version 3.28.0 available

eDocPrintPro version 3.28.0 now uses the latest GhostScript version 9.26. Likewise, some minor bug fixes have been made.

With the ZUGFeRD options there is a new selection to select the ZUGFeRD level which is entered in the PDF metadata as information. The 3 levels – BASIC, COMFORT and EXTENDED are available for selection.
