The latest release of the Black Ice Printer Driver now includes a much faster text extraction feature!

The new Printer Driver can extract the text from the printed documents up-to 10 times faster than previous versions, helping customers to convert documents to text more efficiently. This is a critical update for customers who are using text extraction.

The highly improved Text Extraction performance affects all three types of text output:

  • Plain text
  • Text with layout
  • Text with font information, position, and style

The Text Extraction feature is an efficient way to extract the text information from documents, then save it as a standard text file next to the printed document. Customers can take advantage of the text extraction feature in several ways depending on their business needs, such as archiving the text information from documents or building a searchable database with all their documents.

The new version of the Printer Driver also comes with major quality improvements for printing documents to PDF. Additionally, the latest Printer Driver comes with further stability improvements for printing vector arc objects.

Last but not least, the new improved PDF printing now includes a feature to print documents to PDF with or without a white page background, providing more control over how the PDF is generated.
