Features:

  • Added feature to split multipage PDF files by page count and/or file size threshold, feature can be enabled on the Save tab of printing preferences.

Fixes:

  • Fix to allow the use of UNC naming (\\Server\Folder\) in the Output Directory field.
  • Fix for PNControl temp files filling up the temp folder when using PNSrv10 COM in a Windows service running under NETWORK SERVICE account.

What's new in PDF Image Printer 10.0.007
Fixes:

  • Fix for potentially null pointer exception in PNSrv10 on systems with low resources.
  • Fix issue in locating script file when %TEMP% is setup to be session local.

What's new in PDF Image Printer 10.0.006

What's new in PDF Image Printer 10.0.005
Added feature to allow the output file name to be specified when a print job is created by the calling application. For example, if you Print to File from an application like Word, Excel or any other application, the specified file will be used as the save file name and location.

This feature allows the PDF Image Printer to be used in the same manner as the Microsoft Document Image Writer but instead of TIFF files, it will create PDF documents.

What's new in PDF Image Printer 10.0.004
Fixes:

  • Resolved issue where Printer would failed to install on some supported Windows platforms.

What's new in PDF Image Printer 10.0.003
Fixes:

  • A registry key value is being stored as if the product were a version 9 product and not a version 10 product, this has been corrected.

NOTE: If you have been using the PNSrv10 COM interface prior to 10.0.003 release, please make sure you update to this release. You will also need to manually cleanup the registry using regedit. Locate the folder, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\PEERNET Inc.\Printers\9 or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\PEERNET Inc.\Printers\9 using regedit and delete all keys that are in the form of a GUID {F2A676AF-655B-49D6-BB03-6A8FA336386B} found in this folder.

What's New in PDF Image Printer 9.0.001
PDF Image Printer 9.0 has been upgraded and enhanced to unify the driver with PEERNET's family of image printer drivers, TIFF Image Printer and Raster Image Printer. All drivers now share the same user interface, options and most features as applicable.

Technical Enhancements Include:
Improved the performance of the printer driver to take advantage of parallel processing capabilities on multi-core machines.

Custom paper size improved, major improvement for those working with large paper or rotated paper sizes such as AutoCad users.

Added the ability to create faxable images:

  • Supports creating Profile F and Profile S monochrome fax images, and Profile C color fax images.
  • Fax images can be created in Letter, Legal, A4(ISO), A3(ISO) and B4(ISO) paper sizes.
  • Customize fax image scaling and its alignment on the fax-sized page.
  • Supports the following fax resolutions: 100 x 100, 200 x 100, 200 x 200, 204 x 98, 204 x 196, 300 x 300, 400 x 400, 408 x 391, 204 x 391, 300 x 600, 400 x 800, 600 x 600, 600 x 1200, 1200 x 1200.
  • A reduced fax mode palette is used when creating Profile F and Profile S fax images.

New Color Reduction options have been added to give greater control over the output files:

  • Reduce to 256 color palette will reduce each page to a maximum of 256 colors.
  • Reduce to 16 color palette will reduce each page to a maximum of 16 colors.
  • Reduce to optimal palette, 256 colors max will reduce each page to its minimum number of colors with a maximum of 256 colors.
  • Reduce to optimal palette, 16 colors max will reduce each page to its minimum number of colors with a maximum of 16 colors.

Output file type, color reduction and dithering methods are now all controlled on the Save tab to make it easier to select the output file type.

Fixes Include:

  • Error 1798 during installation; updated the install file.
  • Arabic and Tibetan script produced error when used in the filename field.
  • Watermark feature now available in PDF Image Printer 9.0.
  • Fixed problem of Custom Paper Right margin not working correctly.
  • Error log now created when Error Log field is left blank.

What's New in PDF Image Printer 8.0.004
Rollout of additional license/pricing models to meet the wide range of needs of customers. Note all editions include the Developer APIs (COM, Script, ...) at no additional cost.

  • End User Edition (per User License)
  • Unlimited End User Edition (per User License)
  • Service License (per Server License)

What's New in PDF Image Printer 8.0.002

Now includes PNSrv8 COM Interface
The PNSrv8 COM Interface was designed to make it easier for you, the developer, to programmatically control the PDF Image Printer through your .NET applications by providing the ability to control and communicate with the PDF Image Printer 8.0 during the printing and file creation process. It replaces and greatly enhances the older script file methodology used in the previous versions of the printer.

Added the ability to do page and image processing:

  • Automatically trim page margins based on a customizable intensity level
  • Crop and discard image margins or crop and keep an inside area of the image
  • Adjust the image brightness level
  • Copy all or part of the image to a new page of the same or different size, and choose scaling and alignment of the new image.

New image resampling features allow you to scale the output image to a particular width and height. The new dimensions can be set using:

Pixels

  • as a percentage of the original size
  • or by setting a new image resolution (DPI).

All printing is processed synchronously with the print job in the print spooler. The print job is held in the print queue until the PDF file is created and is ready for further processing. This is different from the previous versions of the driver and should simplify the automation process for application developers who are watching the printer queue to determine when the PDF file is created.

Control Strings can now be enabled or disabled. Control Strings are disabled when PDF Image Printer 8.0 is installed

Improved the text extraction algorithm and added new features:

  • Added text layout options to better preserve the formatting of the text in the original document
  • Text extraction files encoded as ANSII, UTF-8 or UTF-16
  • Emulate Windows, Unix or Mac end-of-line encoding
  • Emit page breaks in the text file

Units for custom paper size, image processing and page processing are now entered as inches (English units) or centimeters (Metric units).

What's New in V7.0.014
Minor release to support faster computers.

What's New in V7.0.013

  • With this release, the PDF Image Printer 7.0 processing model is now identical to the PEERNET.DRV ePDF 6.0 printing model. The default installation is back to spool document and start printing immediately.

What's New in V7.0

  • Support for Windows XP Professional x64 Edition and Windows 2003 x64 Edition that supports both AMD64 and Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (EM64T) - This product does not support Itanium-based Systems (IA64)
  • All processing of strings and file names are now fully UNICODE compliant throughout the architecture. This resolves several issues on Chinese and Japanese Windows as well as other version of Windows using UNICODE languages
  • The print process has been architected to support printing without the possibility of the print queue locking up or users blocking each other when printing at the same time from within a terminal server client session
  • Added a Copy Printer program that supports creating copies of the PDF Image Printer 7.0 and makes it a breeze to create copies of the printer with different default settings
