Mit dieser Funktion können Benutzer mehrere Profile und Prozesspläne aus verschiedenen Bibliotheken auswählen und sie in einem Zug in ein ZIP-Archiv exportieren. Dieses Archiv kann dann in einer Automatisierungssoftware wie GIT abgelegt werden, um die aktualisierten Profile weiter zu verarbeiten.

    Erstellen von Link-Anmerkungen

    Eine weitere neue Funktion ist die Möglichkeit, Link-Anmerkungen zu erstellen, indem mit Hilfe einer Preflight-Prüfung nach bestimmten Texten oder Objekten gesucht wird. Dies erleichtert die Wiederverwendung von Druckdokumenten für die digitale Nutzung, z. B. durch die Suche nach QR-Codes und die Dekodierung der darin enthaltenen URLs.

    Schulung

    Damit die Anwender die Leistungsfähigkeit von pdfToolbox vollständig verstehen und nutzen können, haben wir auch PDF-basiertes Selbstschulungsmaterial erstellt, das sich auf die Profilerstellung konzentriert. Dieses Material kann auf den callas Online-Hilfeseiten gefunden oder direkt von hier herunterladen und enthält Übungen mit Lösungen und Erklärungen.

    callas pdfToolbox 14.1 ist ein kostenloses Update für alle aktuellen Anwender von pdfToolbox 14. Es steht ab sofort auf unserer Website zum Download bereit.

    Fortschrittliche PDF-Automatisierung wird noch einfacher

    Berlin, 30. September 2022 - callas software, der Marktführer für automatisierte PDF-Qualitätskontroll- und Archivierungslösungen, veröffentlicht heute ein umfangreiches Update für sein Flaggschiff, die pdfToolbox-Produktlinie. Das Update bietet Unterstützung für die schnellere Verarbeitung von personalisierten Dokumenten (VDP), verschiedene Verbesserungen der JavaScript- und Prozessplan-Engines in pdfToolbox, um die fortgeschrittene Automatisierung schneller und leistungsfähiger zu machen, sowie eine einfachere Engine für benutzerdefinierte Berichte.

    "pdfToolbox begann vor vielen Jahren als Preflight-Werkzeug, um zu prüfen, ob PDF-Dateien für ihre Aufgabe geeignet sind", bemerkt Dietrich von Seggern, Geschäftsführer von callas software: "Inzwischen wird es eingesetzt, um PDFs produktionsreif zu machen, um alternative Versionen zu erstellen, wenn dies für die Produktion, das Proofing oder die Kommunikation mit Kunden erforderlich ist, und in vielen Fällen sogar, um mehr administrative Dokumente zu erzeugen. pdfToolbox Version 14 fügt nicht nur neue Funktionen hinzu, um neue Marktsegmente anzusprechen, sondern macht die bestehende Technologie auch für Anfänger und fortgeschrittene Benutzer zugänglicher."

    Der Bedarf an Geschwindigkeit: personalisierte Dokumente

    callas weiß seit langem, dass die Verarbeitungsgeschwindigkeit in manchen Umgebungen entscheidend ist. In früheren Versionen von pdfToolbox wurden Technologien wie Quick Check und Quick Fix eingeführt, bei denen eine hoch optimierte Engine PDF-Dateien für bestimmte Aufgaben viel schneller verarbeitet als jede herkömmliche Preflight-Engine. In pdfToolbox 14 wurden Funktionen hinzugefügt, um personalisierte Dokumente - typischerweise Dokumente mit vielen ähnlichen Inhalten auf jeder Seite und einer sehr hohen Seitenzahl - ebenfalls viel schneller zu verarbeiten.

    Die Erstellung von personalisierten Dokumenten aus PDF-Vorlagen in Kombination mit strukturierten Daten ist ein weiteres Merkmal der neuen Version. Dies ermöglicht das Einfügen von Textinhalten, Barcodes oder QR-Codes in Vorlagendokumente. Generell enthält pdfToolbox Version 14 auch eine generische Textsuche und Ersetzungsfunktion, die natürlich auch außerhalb des VDP-Bereichs nützlich ist (frühere Versionen von pdfToolbox waren auf die Textsuche beschränkt).

    Leistungsfähigere anpassbare Berichte

    Die Preflight-Engine in pdfToolbox kann Berichte in vielen verschiedenen Formaten erzeugen: PDF, XML, HTML, JSON... Für die interne Kommunikation oder die Kommunikation mit Kunden sind die PDF-Berichte ideal geeignet, insbesondere weil sie mit HTML-basierten Vorlagen vollständig personalisiert werden können. Die Erstellung dieser Vorlagen, insbesondere für komplexere Report-Layouts, ist jedoch nicht einfach. pdfToolbox 14 enthält Aktualisierungen der Report-Generierungs-Engine, die diese Aufgabe auch für Nicht-Experten vereinfachen. Dies eröffnet die Möglichkeit, benutzerdefinierte PDF-Berichte für mehr Arbeitsabläufe zu nutzen.

    Verbesserungen bei Prozessplänen und JavaScript

    Prozesspläne sind das Herzstück von callas pdfToolbox. Der visuelle Editor ermöglicht die einfache Erstellung komplexer PDF-Verarbeitungs-Workflows; die Integration von JavaScript-Unterstützung sorgt für unbegrenzte Flexibilität.

    Für Prozesspläne bietet pdfToolbox 14 bessere Exit-Codes für die sofortige Interpretation von Verarbeitungsergebnissen, ermöglicht das Speichern von Prozessplänen mit fehlenden Verbindungen (oft nützlich während der Erstellungs- und Testphase), erleichtert das Aktivieren/Deaktivieren von Quick Check- und Quick Fix-Schritten und vieles mehr.

    Kunden, die JavaScript verwenden, werden sich über die zusätzliche Autovervollständigung bei der Eingabe im integrierten Editor, die Möglichkeit zur einfachen Bearbeitung von JavaScripts in Visual Studio Code anstelle des integrierten Editors und die Möglichkeit zur gleichzeitigen Bearbeitung verschiedener JavaScripts in einem Prozessplan in Visual Studio Code freuen.

    Geschützte Profile

    Profile und Prozesspläne können recht komplex sein; daher enthalten sie viel geistiges Eigentum. Mit pdfToolbox 14 können Sie solche Profile oder Prozesspläne schützen. Sie können Copyright-Informationen wie einen Titel und eine Beschreibung, eine URL, unter der weitere Informationen zu finden sind, sowie eine Haupt- und Nebenversion hinzufügen. Und dann erlaubt pdfToolbox die Aktivierung dieser Profile für eine begrenzte Zeit nach der Installation und/oder die Beschränkung ihrer Verwendung auf bestimmte pdfToolbox-Installationen.

    Dies gibt Partnern die Möglichkeit, Bibliotheken mit geschützten Profilen und Prozessplänen zu erstellen und diese in Rechnung zu stellen; im Wesentlichen werden sie als Dienstleistung an Kunden verkauft.

    Einfachere Nutzung des callas License Server

    Zusammen mit pdfToolbox Version 14 veröffentlicht callas auch eine SaaS-Version der License Server-Lösung. Der Lizenzserver ist eine alternative Lizenzierungsmethode für pdfToolbox, bei der die Software nicht auf einem bestimmten Rechner aktiviert wird, sondern ihre Berechtigung zur Ausführung von einem zentralen Lizenzserver erhält.

    Während dieser Lizenzserver früher lokal installiert werden musste (was ein gewisses technisches Know-how erfordert, insbesondere wenn ein Cluster von Lizenzservern zur Redundanz betrieben wird), bietet callas jetzt den callas License Server auch zusätzlich in der Cloud als Service an. Dabei handelt es sich um einen vollständig redundanten Cluster von Lizenzservern, der von callas gewartet wird und sofort genutzt werden kann (nach dem Kauf der erforderlichen Prozess- oder Credit-Cartridges).

    Weitere Verbesserungen in pdfToolbox 14

    Natürlich sind dies nicht die einzigen neuen Funktionen in pdfToolbox 14. Zu den kleineren neuen Funktionen gehören:

    • Native Unterstützung für macOS auf ARM (den Apple Silicon Prozessoren).
    • Ein stark erweiterter JSON-Preflight-Berichtstyp, der entweder kompakter sein kann oder wesentlich mehr Informationen enthält (z. B. Informationen zur Farbdeckung).
    • pdfToolbox kann nun so konfiguriert werden, dass immer ein XML- oder JSON-Preflight-Report erzeugt wird, auch bei beschädigten PDF-Dateien oder wenn PDF-Dateien passwortgeschützt sind.
    • Bei der Erzeugung eines JSON- oder XML-Preflight-Reports aus einem Prozessplanlauf werden nun mehr Informationen über die ausgeführten Schritte bereitgestellt.
    • Eine neue Preflight-Prüfung des JPEG-Qualitätsfaktors (der den Grad der Komprimierung eines JPEG-Bildes angibt).
    • Eine neue Schaltfläche "Duplizieren" beim Erstellen von Korrekturen mit vielen verschiedenen Einstellungen (die Verwendung der Schaltfläche "+" in früheren Versionen erzeugte immer eine leere Einstellung).
    • Beim Einfügen neuer Seiten kann nun festgelegt werden, welche Objekte auf die neue Seite kopiert werden.
    • Die Korrektur "Farben zuordnen" ist jetzt flexibler in Bezug auf die zu ändernden Farben, da es eine Toleranz pro Farbkanal gibt.
    • Aktionen, die sich auf Ausschießkonfigurationsdateien beziehen, erlauben es, diese direkt aus der Aktion heraus zu bearbeiten.
    • Ausschießdateien für Lauflisten und Bogenkonfigurationen können jetzt direkt im Schaltschrank (im Bedienfeld "Ausschießen") gelöscht werden.
    • Prüfungen in Prozessplänen können jetzt einen Schweregrad haben (vorher waren sie immer auf "Fehler" eingestellt).
    • Die Aktion "Stanzlinie extrahieren", die das Extrahieren einer PDF-, SVG- oder CF2-Stanzlinie ermöglicht, kann jetzt in einem Prozessplan verwendet werden.

    callas software veröffentlicht pdfToolbox 13.1

    Kleines, aber wichtiges Update für das pdfToolbox-Flaggschiff von callas verfügbar 

    callas softwarehat heute das erste Update zur pdfToolbox 13 freigegeben. Das Update berücksichtigt die Veröffentlichung der Spezifikationen 2022 durch die Ghent Workgroup (GWG) und bringt verschiedene kleine, aber interessante neue Funktionen mit sich. 

    callas software veröffentlicht jedes Jahr größere Updates für seine pdfToolbox-Produktlinie. Hinzukommen kleinere Updates, die auf Marktveränderungen reagieren oder Probleme bzw. Fehler beseitigen. Die nun verfügbare Version pdfToolbox 13.1 beinhaltet neue Funktionen sowie Korrekturen und unterstützt die neuen GWG-2022-Spezifikationen. 

     

    Unterstützung der GWG-2022-Spezifikationen

    „Die Unterstützung von Standards war schon immer ein wichtiger Eckpfeiler unserer Strategie und ist sowohl für unsere OEM-Partner als auch für uns von hoher Relevanz“, sagt Dietrich von Seggern, Geschäftsführer von callas software. „Wir versuchen, alle relevanten Standards im grafischen Bereich zu implementieren, unabhängig davon, ob sie von der ISO oder der Ghent Workgroup stammen. Wir freuen uns, dass wir mit pdfToolbox 13.1 so schnell auf die Veröffentlichung der 2022er-Spezifikationen der Ghent Workgroup reagieren konnten.“ 

    pdfToolbox 13.1 hat sämtliche Varianten der GWG-Spezifikationen implementiert. Um diese ganzheitlich zu unterstützen, waren einige Anpassungen und zusätzliche Funktionen für die Preflight-Engine von pdfToolbox notwendig. Die Preflight-Profile, die alle Varianten vollständig unterstützen, sind in der pdfToolbox-Preflight-Bibliothek abgelegt. 

    Verbesserungen zur Unterstützung von GWG 2022

     

    Die GWG-2022-Spezifikationen erfordern, dass Preflight-Anwendungen prüfen, ob das Dokument Bereiche mit zu viel Farbe enthält. Neu ist dabei, dass teilweise nur Prozessfarben oder teilweise auch Schmuckfarben geprüft werden müssen. Dies ist nun in pdfToolbox 13.1 möglich. 

    Ein wichtiges Merkmal der GWG-2022-Spezifikationen ist, dass sie Preflight-Anwendungen erlauben, PDF-Dateien intelligent zu prüfen. Sie können nun Objekte ignorieren, die in der Produktion keinesfalls Probleme verursachen würden. Das einfachste Beispiel ist, dass Objekte, die unsichtbar sind, ignoriert werden können. Dies reduziert die Anzahl der sogenannten „False Positives“ – also PDF-Dateien, die Fehlermeldungen auslösen, obwohl diese gar nicht vorhanden sind. Die Minimierung solcher falschen Fehlermeldungen ist vor allem bei der reibungslosen Produktion vorteilhaft. Um dies zu erreichen, verfügt pdfToolbox bereits seit Jahren über die Sifter-Technologie. Diese hat callas software in pdfToolbox 13.1 weiter optimiert, sodass diese Version eine höhere Performance, insbesondere bei größeren und komplexeren Dokumenten erzielt. 

    Weitere Verbesserungen in pdfToolbox 13.1

    pdfToolbox 13.1 unterstützt die Optimierung komplexer Vektorobjekte. Vektorpfade werden vereinfacht, indem die Teile, die über ihren Beschneidungspfad hinausgehen, durch eine gerade Linie ersetzt werden. Dies entfernt die gesamte Komplexität, die nicht sichtbar ist, weil sie ohnehin beschnitten wird. Da dies in einigen komplexen Dateien häufig vorkommt, kann somit die Dateikomplexität erheblich reduziert werden. 

    Der callas License Server wird in einigen Anwendungen oft zur Lizenzierung von pdfToolbox eingesetzt. Dies hat jedoch Auswirkungen auf die einfache Nutzung von pdfToolbox. Die Informationen über den/die License Server müssen bei jedem Aufruf auf Kommandozeile oder in jedem im Einsatz befindlichen Enfocus-Switch-Konfigurator ausgegeben werden. pdfToolbox 13.1 beinhaltet nun eine neue Konfigurationsdatei, die direkt neben der ausführbaren pdfToolbox-Datei liegt, um die License-Server-Informationen bereitzustellen.

    Darüber hinaus unterstützt pdfToolbox in Version 13.1 Transparenzen (Angabe von Deckkraft, Mischmodi usw.), wenn die Place-Content-Technologie zum Hinzufügen von Inhalten zu einem PDF-Dokument verwendet wird. 

    Verfügbarkeit und Preis

    callas pdfToolbox 13.1 steht ab sofort als kostenloses Update von Version 13 zur Verfügung.

    Checkpoints - manuelle Eingriffe in der automatisierten Druckvorstufe

    In jedem automatischen Workflow ist der Umgang mit besonders problematischen Dateien eine schwierige Aufgabe, da es mitunter unverzichtbar ist, solche Dateien manuell zu überprüfen und/oder zu korrigieren. Dort wo dies unerlässlich ist, ist diese Möglichkeit nun in pdfToolbox 7 direkt in die Server- und Desktop-Anwendung eingebaut.

    Problematische Dateien können in jedem Workflow mit pdfToolbox Server 7 zunächst in einem "Warteraum" verbleiben, statt sie sofort in das Fehlerverzeichnis zu verschieben. Anwender von pdfToolbox Desktop im gleichen Netzwerk sehen die Liste der Dateien in diesem "Warteraum" direkt in der pdfToolbox-Oberfläche. Sie können diese dann auf ihrem Desktoprechner öffnen (auschecken), überprüfen und mit den Tools der pdfToolbox bearbeiten und die Dateien dann wahlweise in einer korrigierten Version einchecken, freigeben oder auch ablehnen. Je nach Entscheidung des Anwenders wird das Ergebnis in die Ordner für erfolgreiche oder fehlerhafte Ausgabe abgelegt.

    Personalisieren Sie Ihren Preflight-Report

    Für Endkunden ist der Preflight-Report mit seinen Fehlermeldungen und Warnungen oft der einzige Kontakt, den sie mit dem Produktionsworkflow haben. Deshalb müssen diese Berichte prägnant und knapp sein aber alle wichtigen Informationen enthalten. Der Preflight-Bericht von pdfToolbox 7 verwendet ein neues, optisch ansprechendes Layout, und stellt alle Informationen klar und übersichtlich dar. Darüber hinaus basiert der Report auf einem für den Anwender zugänglichen HTML-Template und ist vollständig anpassbar. So lässt sich auf Wunsch beispielsweise sehr einfach das eigene Firmenlogo oder die eigene Markenfarbe verwenden.

    Verbesserte Transparenz-Engine und Überdruck verflachen

    Transparenzreduzierung ist in vielen Produktionsworkflows noch immer ein notwendiger Bestandteil. pdfToolbox bietet zwar bereits seit längerem eine erstklassige Transparenzreduzierung, pdfToolbox 7 liefert jedoch noch "glattere" Ergebnisse und verbesserte Performance. Darüber hinaus ist es nun auch möglich, überdruckende Objekte in einer PDF-Datei auf die gleiche Art und Weise wie transparente Objekte zu reduzieren, um Probleme bei der Ausgabe solcher Objekte zu vermeiden.

    Verbesserte Font-Engine

    Ein weiteres noch immer häufiges Problemfeld stellen Schriften dar. Eine Vielzahl von Schwachstellen in diesem Bereich werden von der neuen Schrift-Engine in der pdfToolbox 7 adressiert. Die neue Engine ist leistungsfähiger beim Einbetten und Konvertieren von Schriften und kann besser mit fehlerhaften Schriften umgehen sowie diese reparieren. Darüber hinaus bietet die neue Engine verbesserte Stabilität und höhere Leistung.

    Bereinigen von PDF-Dateien für den Druck und mobile Produktionsworkflows

    Viele Anfragen zur pdfToolbox beziehen sich auf Funktionen zur Bereinigung von PDF-Dokumenten. Hier bietet pdfToolbox 7 neue oder verbesserte Möglichkeiten:

    • Präzises beschneiden von Seiten auf ihren sichtbaren Inhalt ohne Berücksichtigung unsichtbarer oder teilweise maskierter Objekte. Damit werden genauere Ergebnisse beim Beschnitt auf den tatsächlich sichtbaren Seiteninhalt erzielt.


    • Harter Beschnitt von Bildern. Nicht sichtbare Bildteile werden entfernt, um die Datei kleiner zu machen. Außerdem werden irreführende Fehlermeldungen z.B. zur Flächendeckung in abmaskierten Bildelementen vermieden. Bilder können darüber hinaus auf eine der Seitenboxen, z.B. den Beschnittrahmen (Bleed Box) beschnitten werden.
    • Entfernen beliebiger Seitenelemente. Damit lassen sich jetzt direkter beispielsweise Stanzlinien oder alle Elemente in einer bestimmten Schmuckfarbe entfernen.
    • Entfernen aller Metadaten aus PDF-Dokumenten. Die neue Korrekturfunktion ermöglicht z.B. das Entfernen von Metadaten auf Objektebene, durch die PDF-Dateien in manchen Fällen stark vergrößert sein können.

    Einige weitere interessante Kontroll- und Preflight-Möglichkeiten

    pdfToolbox bietet eine Reihe weiterentwickelter Preflight-Prüfungen, die Workflows zur Qualitätskontrolle noch leistungsfähiger machen. Einige davon basieren auf der leistungsstarken PDF-to-Image-Engine der pdfToolbox:

    • Der Farbauftrag lässt sich vorab für jede Druckfarbe berechnen (und in einem automatischen Workflow auswerten und z.B. an ein MIS System zurück melden) und die genaue Anzahl an Separationen in einer Datei lässt sich exakt ermitteln.
    • Der Vergleich von zwei PDF-Dokumenten lässt sich auf Farbauszüge beschränken, so dass z.B. nur die CMY Kanäle (nicht textuelle Objekte) oder nur der Schwarzkanal (nur Text) verglichen wird ohne dass das PDF angepasst werden müsste.
    • Die effektiv zu erwartenden Farbauszüge können ermittelt werden.
    • Bestimmung der x-Höhe von Text. Dies basiert auf der neuen EU-Verordnung die die Mindest-Textgröße auf Verpackungsmaterial vorschreibt. Da die Textgröße in der Verordnung als x-Höhe definiert ist, die anders ermittelt wird als die "normale" Textgröße, sind neue Prüfungen erforderlich.
