SOLID FRAMEWORK 10.0.10278

The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 10.0.10278.

 

Among other improvements, this version represents a major improvement in the handling of Non-Standard Encoding.

 

 

Solid Framework 10.0.10158

The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 10.0.10158.

The main features in this build are:

Support For Exporting 16 Digit Numbers to Excel

Excel only supports 15 significant digits. As a result longer numbers were being rounded following reconstruction of a spreadsheet from a PDF.

 

In the example below, the number in the PDF was 2180715866372664

 

In 10054 the number is silently rounded which results in the incorrect number being displayed.

In 10158 the number is treated as text so that the displayed value is correct.

Other changes

Add Support for Fonts Database File when Converting with a JobProcessor

Solid Framework has supported the use of a database of font metrics since 10.0.9182, which allows it to use fonts during the reconstruction process that are not installed on the machine.

This mechanism was previously only available for the “Converter” classes. It is now also available when using “JobEnvelopes” with a “JobProcessor”.

Allow Fonts Database File to be Reloaded

It is now possible to change which fonts database file is used without restarting the converter process. In previous versions of Solid Framework attempting to do so would be silently ignored.

 

Breaking Changes

Some SolidFramework.Platform functions no longer return a Boolean

This affects:

  • SetAppDataDirectory
  • SetCMapDirectory
  • SetColorProfileDirectory
  • SetFontDirectory
  • SetFontsDataBaseFile

 

Platform.SetFontsDataBaseFile can now throw exceptions

The main scenario where this is likely to occur is if the specified FontsDataBaseFile does not exist.

Solid Framework 10.0.10054

The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 10.0.10054.

 

This version includes:

  • the ability to better convert some PDFs that have incorrectly specified shading
  • improved consistency of conversion to PowerPoint whether the machine is  32 bit or 64 bit
  • support for soft-hyphen detection when converting to Word (although this option is disabled by default to retain existing behaviour)

This Windows version of the SDK has been compiled using the Windows 10 SDK. This may require additional deployment steps on Windows 7 and earlier version of the Windows Operating System.

 

Solid Framework 10.0.9862

The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 10.0.9862.

This includes further improvements in the removal of duplicated characters which are created when reconstructing Chinese language PDFs that were created by QuartzPDF.

It is also includes more tolerance of more types of incorrectly specified Character Maps in the PDF internal structure.

This version includes changes in how licenses are validated to support Cloud deployment. Please contact us if you have problems.

Solid Framework 10.0.9786

The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 10.0.9786.

Among other improvements, this version reduces the number of duplicated characters which are created when reconstructing Chinese language PDFs that were created by QuartzPDF. It is also more tolerant of incorrectly specified Character Maps in the PDF internal structure.

In addition it also provides access to the correct Layout bounds for non-rotated text boxes when reconstructing in Exact mode.

Solid Framework 10.0.9726

The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 10.0.9726.

Among other improvements, this version includes faster performance and improvements in the handling of Non Standard Encoded files.

Solid Framework 10.0.9638

The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 10.0.9638.

Solid Framework 10.0.9452

The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 10.0.9452.

MAIN FEATURES

HTML Improvements

  • Prevention of duplicated text when exporting to HTML.
  • Implementation of “Windows Connected File” Feature when Exporting to HTML with Linked Images, allowing the folder containing the images to be deleted automatically if the HTML file is deleted.
  • Support renaming of constructed HTML file to an arbitrary name, without causing navigation issues.

Note that this version contains some changes in the way that files are created when exporting to HTML, which could potentially cause minor breakage to existing code.

Other Improvements

  • Add support for optionally retaining headers and footers when converting to Excel.
  • Add support for converting to Unicode Text.
  • Improved editability of some files that were previously reconstructed with text boxes.

 

Breaking Change

The property PdfToOfficeJobEnvelope.OcrEngine was always set to TextRecoveryEngine.SolidOCR which caused problems if the license did not support OCR.

The property has now been removed. This will cause compile time errors that can be resolved by removing any explicit reference to the property.

This affects: PdfToWordJobEnvelope, PdfToExcelJobEnvelope, PdfToPowerPointJobEnvelope, PdfToTextJobEnvelope, PdfToHtmlJobEnvelope and PdfToDataJobEnvelope.
