Black Ice Software is proud to announce the newest release of the Auto-Print SDK with significant new features and many enhancements for developers!

Some of the recent features additions are:

  • Keeping the page orientation. Multi-page documents contain mixed portrait and landscaped oriented pages. In the conversion process this pages mostly get converted portrait or landscaped mode and orientation was lost.
  • Maintaining the page size. Many multi-page documents can contain different pages sizes like Letter, A4, and Legal page sizes.
  • Preserving Image resolution. Preserving image resolution of the original document can be an important factor when converting documents. If the original document had a high resolution of 1200 DPI image; the new format will preserver the 1200 DPI resolution.
  • Maintaining the color depth of the original document. When documents are converted many cased the color depth 1-bit, 8-bit, 24-bit is uniformly converted to 1-bit or 24-bit and critical document quality information is lost.

Each of these new features listed above can be enabled/disabled through the API function call BIAPSetIntProperty() to configure conversion properties or permanently pre-set these features through the BiAutoPrint.ini file.

Other notable additional Improvements are:

  • Added auto-detection of Adobe Reader 64-bit.
  • Added auto-detection of Foxit Reader 64-bit.
  • Added better detection of password protection in PDF files, and the ability to remove invisible white backgrounds from some PDF documents.
