Rotation option for paper and overlay available
- We’ve added a rotation option to the Paper and Overlays option block that lets you customize the paper or overlay page orientation according to the actual document.
Option to use the save file name chooser dialog in auto save mode
- This option can be used to let the user decide where to place the current file in automatic save mode. If this option is enabled and the PDF printer is configured in automatic save mode, a dialog box appears for selecting the file name in which the user must select the save path.
Merge with zipper method available in the Creator
- There is now also the new merge with zipper method available. This new merge mode merges page after page (page one from first file, then page one from second file, …). This tool is added to the toolbar of the app.
Function to reverse the page order now available
- The Creator has a new function to reverse the page order of a document. The function is available in the context menu of a file that was opened there. Right-click an open file or click the new menu icon, and then click the appropriate menu item. This tool is very useful for scanned documents to reverse the page order and get the backs in the correct order. This is necessary for the new zipper merge, for example.
Document toolbar of the Creator now has a burger menu item
- This burger menu item can be used to show the context menu of a file.
Re-enabled the internal file explorer of the Creator
- We have reactivated the creator’s internal explorer and added some optimizations. The file explorer can be activated or deactivated from the main menu of the program.
Copy/Paste improvements in the PDF reader for form fields
- Copy/Paste could not be used in older versions of the Reader for form fields. This is now possible and you can use Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V in form fields.
PDF printer file name detection improved
- We have improved the code that is responsible for recognizing the filename and path of the printed files. The new algorithm is slightly better.
Replacement of special characters in file names
- We found some more places where special characters in the filename were not replaced. This could lead to unsaved files or unwanted behavior. Invalid file name characters are now also replaced for files attached to a mail to avoid problems here.
Overlay and paper method improved
- We are now using a new algorithm to combine the contents of the files (digital paper and actual document), which gives better results under different conditions. The old method can be used by setting overlay.mode = “old” in the Windows registry settings.
Translaton file updates
Fix for a special PDF auto rotate pages bug
- We found this special case that could lead to incorrectly rotated pages in PDF files and we fixed it.
