The latest public release of Solid Framework SDK is now available for download from the developer portal at www.solidframework.net. This is version 9.2.8284.
IMPROVED HANDLING OF SHADING
The rendering and conversion of Type 3 and Type 7 shading has been significantly improved.
RED NUMBERS ARE NO LONGER CONSIDERED TO ALWAYS BE NEGATIVE WHEN CONVERTING TO EXCEL
Previously red numeric text was always considered to represent negative numbers. It is now considered to be negative only if it is preceded by a “-” sign.
FURTHER OCR IMPROVEMENTS
SolidOCR continues to improve, and this release contains further refinements. In this release we have made improvements in the recognition of bold text within documents as well as specific improvements within the 32 bit version of the Framework.
SUPPORT FOR REMOVING TAGS FROM A PDF DOCUMENT
Solid Framework has supported tags within PDF documents for many years. Tags are used to guide the reconstruction process, which can result in visually similar PDFs being reconstructed differently depending on whether or not they are tagged.
We have now added functionality to allow tags to be removed if required.

Faster Detection of Language within OCR’d files
Solid Framework can detect the language of a scanned document which helps to improve OCR accuracy. For files that contained ambiguous language this could be slow.
We have modified the mechanism to significantly faster with these files.
Modified mechanism for specifying the location of Tesseract “traineddata” files
Solid Framework performs OCR for Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Greek language documents using Tesseract. For this to work it is necessary to specify the location of the folder than contains the “traineddata” files for the specific language.
The mechanism for doing this has been modified with the creation of a read/write property TesseractDataDirectoryLocation. This replaces the method SetTesseractDataDirectory.
