  • Predefined Process plans
    • Check and fix bleed: Minor adjustment to cover smooth shade objects [FP64367]
  • Fixups
    • Downsample/recompress images: Problem solved, where processing was hanging in some special cases [FP64608]
    • Downsample/recompress images: Issue fixed, where file size increased if executed together with "Remove invisible image data" [CA1030417]
    • Generate bleed:
      • Problems solved, where bleed was not properly rendered for pages with UserUnits [CA1030575]
      • Problem solved, where objects on invisible layers were not ignored [CA1030382]

      • Problem solved, where bleed as mirrored page objects were not properly created for pages with UserUnits when "except spot" was used [CA1030575]
    • Set page scaling factor: Problem solved, where an already existing page scaling factor (UserUnit) was taken into account [CA1030600; FP64657]
    • Embed Output Intent with specified parameters: Issue fixed, where the ICC profile could not be selected from the file system via a Variable in the Desktop version [FP64093]
    • Adjust dot gain: Issue fixed, where the .crv file could not be selected from the file system via a Variable in the Desktop version [CA1030395]
    • Map colors / Convert colors: Problem solved, where vector objects were converted in special cases, although not in scope [CA1030353; CA1030416; FP64549]
    • Scale pages: Adjusted handling of page scaling factors (UserUnits), which will now be set to 1 if the resulting size does not require this entry [FP63218]
    • Scale pages / Scale page content only: Added "Apply to" filter (e.g. for page ranges) and made multiple configurable [FP34704; FP46026; FP49227; FP53742; FP61585]

    • Create bookmarks from headings: Issue, fixed, where bookmark hierarchy was wrong after processing in certain cases
    • Map spot and process colors: Problem solved, where spot color using indexed DeviceN with "None" colorants became invisible, although not in scope [FP63166]
    • Convert fonts to outlines: Problem solved, where processing resulted in an error if Type3 font was used in a certain manner [CA1030526]

    • Set page geometry boxes (based on page content): Issue fixed, where TrimBox was not set correctly if UserUnits were used [FP64252]
    • Remove objects: Adjusted recognition for objects grouped by FormXObjects to ensure only objects used once are removed (e.g. if outside CropBox) [CA1029102; CA1029653]
    • Remove objects: Problem solved, where combined fill and stroke vector objects were not properly handled [CA1028805]
  • Checks
    • Names of (process) plates / spot color plates: Issue fixed, where settings in lists were not properly handled [FP63968]
    • PDF/UA validation: Issue fixed, where a special, invalid PDF tagging structure could result in an unstable behavior [FP63578]

    • Ignore objects outside ...: Issue solved, where clipped parts of objects were taken into account [FP64182]
    • Effective ink coverage for separated plates: Adjusted behavior of operators: "less than / less than or equal to" will ignore 0%, while "highest value is less than / highest value is less than or equal" will consider 0%
    • Find barcodes: Problem solved, where a barcode could not be found in certain cases [CA1030536]
  • Process plans
    • Optimized execution of a generic post check as the last step only in cases when a report etc. is requested
  • Actions
    • Place grommets: Issue solved, where an existing page scaling factor (user unit) was not taken into account [FP64130]
    • Impose: Support for setting a slot as an isolated transparency group setting during dynamic imposition [FP64882]
    • Save as image: Problem solved, where rendering to MultiChannel using the MediaBox resulted in a failure in some cases [CA1023759]
    • Save as image: Problem solved, where rendering was not successful if a certain size was chosen [FP35113; FP60074; CA1030412]
    • QuickFix: Problem solved, where setting the page geometry boxes with 2 settings was not successful [FP64213; FP64503]
    • QuickCheck: Issue solved, where stopping processing after the defined timeout took rather long [CA1029997]
    • ToPDF: Issue fixed, where certain structures in a TIFF file could result in extremely long processing time and an exhausting cache folder [CA1030656]

    • PDF reports: Issue fixed, where highlighting did not use the correct colors for highlighting [FP60552; CA1030164]
  • Desktop
