Release notes are available for the following public releases:


PDF Converter Services v8.2
 

Read the announcement to see what is new in the latest release.
 

#1861 - When FastWebView / Linearization is used PDF Security cannot be applied

As of version 7.0 the PDF Converter Professional add-on license allows a PDF to be optimised for use on the web (FastWebView / Linearization). This option cannot be used in combination with PDF Security and encryption.
 

#1150 - Office DRM protected documents are not supported

Documents that have been encrypted and secured via Microsoft's DRM solution are not supported at this moment in time.
 

#1149 - InfoPath 2010 Prioritises views selected in the Print Multiple Views dialog

InfoPath ships with a dialog box that allows the user to select which views (multiple) are printed when a form is sent to the printer. In InfoPath 2007 this functionality is ignored when generating PDF files, however in InfoPath 2010 these views are given priority over Muhimbi's own dynamic view selection functionality. If you wish to use Muhimbi's dynamic view selection features in combination with InfoPath 2010 then please make sure no views are selected in InfoPath's Print Multiple Views dialog. We hope to find a more permanent workaround for a next software release.
 

#781 - Files containing macros fail to convert when using Visio 2010.

When using the beta version of Visio 2010 to convert Visio files that contain macros, the file will fail to convert. As a workaround remove the macro or use Visio 2007 to convert these kind of files.
 

#734 - MS-Word Documents containing the ASK field code do not convert.

MS-Word documents that contain this rare field code cause the converter to time out. To quickly check if a document contains such a field code, press CTRL-A to select all text and then press F9 to refresh all field codes. If a dialog box shows up asking for text to be entered then your document contains an ASK field code. Please remove it before conversion.
 

#678 - Empty Excel sheets cannot be converted

Excel sheets that contain no data cannot be converted to PDF format.

Read the announcement to see what is new in the latest release.
 

#2461 - Office 2016 is not recognised by installer

The installer carries out a number of checks to verify that MS-Office has been deployed on the server running the Conversion Service. At this moment the installer recognises Office 2007-2013 and will display a warning that Office was not found when using Office 2016. If Office 2016 is installed as per the Administration Guide, then this warning can be ignored.
 

#2555 - Unattended installation option not available

The new installer currently doesn't support unattended installation. This will be introduced as part of version 8.1.

#2020 - JPEG2000 encoded PDFs cannot be OCRed

The PDF Converter's OCR add-on has the ability to recognise text in scanned PDF files and make these files fully searchable and indexable. Scanned content can be encoded in many different ways, but PDFs that use JPEG2000 encoding cannot be OCRed. As a workaround use the PDF Converter Professional to convert the PDF to an older PDF version that doesn't support JPEG2000 before sending it for OCR processing.
 

#1861 - When FastWebView / Linearization is used PDF Security cannot be applied

As of version 7.0 the PDF Converter Professional add-on license allows a PDF to be optimised for use on the web (FastWebView / Linearization). This option cannot be used in combination with PDF Security and encryption.
 

#1813 - The Service installer does not run on systems with only .net 4.5 installed

Although the PDF Conversion Service works fine on .NET 4.5 systems, the .NET Framework 3.0 / 3.5 needs to be installed for the installer to be able to run. The various copies of the .net framework can be installed at the same time and run in parallel.
 

#1495 - Externaly referenced images don't always finish loading before conversion in InfoPath

When an InfoPath form contains a number of externally referenced large images then the PDF Conversion may be carried out before these images finish loading. As a workaround use smaller images or embed the images inside the InfoPath form.
 

#1150 - Office DRM protected documents are not supported

Documents that have been encrypted and secured via Microsoft's DRM solution are not supported at this moment in time.
 

#1149 - InfoPath 2010 Prioritises views selected in the Print Multiple Views dialog

We hope to find a more permanent workaround for a next software release.
 

#880 - Transparency settings in watermarks depend on PDF Reader.

The PDF Converter allows transparency settings to be specified for entire watermarks as well as individual watermark elements. Some PDF Readers do not always interpret transparency of elements correctly. You may need to move your transparency settings from the watermark container to the individual elements.
 

#781 - Files containing macros fail to convert when using Visio 2010.

When using the beta version of Visio 2010 to convert Visio files that contain macros, the file will fail to convert. As a workaround remove the macro or use Visio 2007 to convert these kind of files.

#1149 - InfoPath 2010 Prioritises views selected in the Print Multiple Views dialog

InfoPath ships with a dialog box that allows the user to select which views (multiple) are printed when a form is sent to the printer. In InfoPath 2007 this functionality is ignored when generating PDF files, however in InfoPath 2010 these views are given priority over Muhimbi's own dynamic view selection functionality. If you wish to use Muhimbi's dynamic view selection features in combination with InfoPath 2010 then please make sure no views are selected in InfoPath's Print Multiple Views dialog. We hope to find a more permanent workaround for a next software release.
 

#880 - Transparency settings in watermarks depend on PDF Reader.
