iPaper 3.x – MDX Option – Product Video available – Read content and use as variables

For iPaper version 3.x there is the “MDX – MetaDataXtraction” add-on module. Key features of the PDFmdx application have been integrated into iPaper. Documents can be recognized on the basis of content, the corresponding stationery can be selected, or field, template and layout definitions can be used to read out information from the document. Fields / variables are filled with values which can be used later on in the iPaper actions. Fixed information or information read from the document can also be “stamped” on the PDF as text or as 1D / 2D / QR barcode.

iPaper MDX applications:

  • Automatically select the stationery to be used on the basis of the document contents.
  • For serial letters or document stacks it can be recognized at which page a new document begins to select the stationery again or to start again with the first stationery page.
  • Read e-mail addresses from the document and use them to send the document immediately.
  • Documents can be recognized on the basis of criteria, fields can be read out of the document via layout masks, variables can be assigned and used for iPaper actions such as e.g. e-mail, save as, program call and so on.
  • QR code barcodes (e.g. For quick transfers), 1D / 2D barcodes or text stamps can be applied to vouchers. It is also possible to assign read field contents from the document.

FileConverterPro (FCpro) – Version 1.0.54 available

Innovations FCpro Version 1.0.54:

HiQ – HTML to PDF conversion – Browser size configurable:

  • For the HiQ-HTML to PDF conversion, a “virtual browser” is used internally for the rendering of the HTML pages. Depending on the window size of the browser, HTML pages are displayed differently with regard to format / wrap / margins, etc.. This is why the window size of the browser affects the PDF generated during the conversionFor this reason, there is now a parameter for both the optimal window size to be determined automatically or to specify a fixed browser window width in pixels. The internal default value is 800 pixels.

iOCR – PDF rendering resolution configurable:

  • Since only image / image documents can be processed by OCR, PDF documents are always subjected to an image (rendering) prior to OCR processing. The PDF rendering is done with a predefined resolution – so far 300dpi for BW and 150dpi for color. However, the default value of 150dpi is not sufficient to always achieve a good OCR detection rate. Therefore, it is now possible to configure the rendering resolution for BW and color, with the default value for color now being 300dpi.

iOCR - Option - PDF Rendering resolution for b&w and color

Support for additional MS-Office formats:

  • E.g. DOTX: The new version now also includes all MS-Office templates. E.g. DOTX over their file extensions or via the MIME types.

EMail Archiver for FileConverterPro – Version 4.4.1

Innovations Version 4.4.1:

  • Integration – MSG ExportWith the function for archiving together with the Commandline integration for further processing, only the PDF file generated from the message was previously made available in the “Download folder”Now the MSG with the same name is also exported in the same folder. Thus, downstream programs that are called by commandline also have access to the MSG file.

  • Integration – Commandline % VariablesError correction – these are now used correctly.
  • Background processing – suppress confirmation messageIf jobs are inserted into the background processing queue, the user will receive a message that he must confirm. This display can now be deactivated via a checkbox whereby the complete processing and archiving is done silently.

File Converter Pro – temporary files & Jobs – Paths Change / Delete automatically

File Converter Pro uses a series of temporary folders in the processing of documents. Likewise, the jobs are managed in an SQL database and the Input / Output files are stored in email folders. If a large number of documents are processed in a short period, then can accumulate large amounts of data in the temporary and in the job-folders. Especially when the FCPro server has a high throughput (eg by many CPU cores (16)), then large amounts of data can accumulate in a few days (in the gigabyte range). The disk capacity and configuring in days, how long the data is kept, should be adjusted accordingly.

That is why it is important to know

  • Where the temporary files / jobs are stored?
  • How can you change the default paths and place elsewhere?
  • How can you adjust how long to keep these data?
  • When will the temporary files and jobs deleted?

When FCPro processing following temporary folders are used:

  • Jobs: C: \ Program Data \ File Converter Pro \ WCF jobs. The path can be configured via the User Interface. In Jobs folder, a subfolder is created with the job number and stored inside the input file per job. The PDF generated target file is stored in the job folder “Out”. The Jobs folders are automatically deleted after a set number of days. The status is set in the job database to “Expired”.
  • Working folder: C: \ Program Data \ File Converter Pro \ Work. The path can be configured via the User Interface. The files in it are automatically deleted after a set number of days.
  • NET Common Folder: Temporary folder -% TEMP% / nc. The path can be configured via the User Interface, and PDFnet folder -% TEMP% / pdfnet. These two folders are only not deleted when the application is not properly (eg exits via the task manager or crashes). The folders are temporarily used to copy files, move, rename, and for PDF / A conversion. The files are first created in these folders and processed and moved to the destination folder only at the end. Normally, if the service is started and stopped in the normal way, this folder should contain no files. If still files left over, they will be automatically deleted after a set number of days.
  • Abbyy Temp folder: Temporary folder for OCR processing. % TEMP% \ ABBYY FineReader Engine 10 – The path can be adjusted using the Abbyy OCR configuration. The files are automatically deleted after a set number of days.
