PDF Converter Services 10.2 - Data Import into PDF Forms

Posted at: 10:16 on by Muhimbi

PDFConverterServicesBox4_thumb3 We recently released Muhimbi PDF Converter Services 10.2. This version offers a variety of new features, including data import into PDF forms, the ability to display that emails were sent on behalf of someone else, and zoom specification.

Data Import into PDF Forms

The ability to export data was added in version 10.1.2, and now, users can also import FDF, XFDF and XML data formats into both Adobe AcroForm and XML Forms Architecture (XFA) PDF form templates. This allows you to easily present and print data in a human-readable format.

An “On Behalf Of” Field in Emails

Many users have workflows that require converting emails to PDF, and it’s now possible to display that emails were sent "on behalf of" someone when converting them from MSG and EML formats to PDF.

On behalf of email field

Zooming for HTML Conversion

For Chromium-based HTML-to-PDF conversion, users can specify a zoom factor of between 10 and 200 percent, which will be applied to the converted document.

And More!

Along with these great new changes, we’ve also made various bug fixes to make the user experience more seamless.

PDF Converter for SharePoint 10.2 - Reading Document Information

Posted at: 09:29 on by Muhimbi

PDFBox5 We’re happy to announce we’ve released PDF Converter for SharePoint 10.2. This new version includes the ability to read built-in and custom document properties, support for importing data into PDF forms, and conversion of Microsoft InfoPath with custom XSN.

Reading Built-In and Custom Document Properties

Thanks to a workflow action available in both SharePoint Designer and Nintex, users can now read various individual built-in and custom properties from Microsoft Word and PDF documents, such as the title, author and subject. An additional new Nintex workflow action also enables users to simultaneously retrieve multiple document properties from Word and PDF documents in XML.

Furthermore, it’s also possible to read custom Word and PDF properties and XMP metadata for PDFs. For more detailed information on reading document properties, please refer to this knowledge base article.

Importing Data into PDF Forms

Beginning with version 10.1.2 of PDF Converter for SharePoint, it was possible to export FDF, XFDF and XML formats into both Adobe AcroForm and XML Forms Architecture (XFA) PDF form templates. In this new version, you can now import data as well, which enables you to present information in a human-readable format.

InfoPath Conversion with Custom XSN

The Convert Document workflow action, which historically has automatically picked up the template file during conversion, now enables users of SharePoint Designer and Nintex to override the XSN template and specify the path to the template to be used.

And More!

In addition to the changes mentioned above, we also made various bug fixes.

Open and Edit PDFs Directly in SharePoint

Posted at: 08:49 on 24 May 2022 by Muhimbi

For well over a decade, we've been working with our customers to add new features to our PDF conversion software. We've always listened to your requests, and that has helped us successfully create and launch market-leading products.

However, there's a common request we were never able to address — until now. And that's allowing users to view and edit PDFs seamlessly, directly in SharePoint.

There are many standalone commercial PDF viewers and editors on the market, but anyone using them knows they don't work well with SharePoint. Saving files is difficult, the interfaces are unintuitive, and they don't play well with workflow platforms like SharePoint Designer and Nintex Workflow. Or even worse, some users end up downloading a PDF file, using an editor, and then reuploading the edited document.

This back-and-forth drains users' focus and wastes their time when all they want to do is edit a PDF or create a quick sales form. Wouldn't it be better if you could simply view and edit PDFs inside SharePoint and go about your business?

Of course it would. That's why we're so excited to announce the release of Muhimbi's PDF Editor for SharePoint on-premises (SP2013 and up, including SE). This PDF editor seamlessly integrates with SharePoint, allowing you to view, edit and manipulate PDFs without ever leaving your instance.

Now, let’s talk about why we think you’ll love it…


Great User Experience

As you can see, our PDF editor comes with a sleek and intuitive UI. Users can easily access and use editing tools to annotate, sign, edit, redact and more.

PDF Editor UI


Easy Integration

Not only does our PDF editor integrate fully with SharePoint, but it’s also incredibly easy to get started. There are only two steps: First, download the editor, and then, install it in SharePoint. And presto — you’re ready to edit documents inside SharePoint.


Feature-Rich and Customizable PDF Editor

Just being able to preview and edit text in a PDF isn’t enough for most users. That’s why we rolled out a full suite of features to simplify your work and help you save time. With the Muhimbi PDF Editor for SharePoint, you’ll be able to:

  • Annotate PDFs
  • Draw, select a typed signature or upload an image of an electronic signature to PDFs
  • Move, crop, rotate, duplicate, delete and add pages to PDFs
  • Merge and combine PDFs
  • View PDF forms and the data saved in the associated form fields
  • Fill PDF forms and save form field data
  • Permanently redact sensitive information from a PDF document


Enterprise-Level Security

The Muhimbi PDF Editor integrates into SharePoint completely. This means you don’t have to install any additional desktop software, download confidential PDF files to your computer or have your files sent to a third-party server. Keeping all your PDF work inside the SharePoint environment means benefitting from SharePoint’s enterprise-level security.


Custom Pricing

This one is new for Muhimbi. We’re trying a pay-as-you-need model for our PDF Editor for SharePoint. What does this mean for you, the user?

It means you won’t have to pay for features or volume you don’t need. Our team will customize the price and the feature set to your unique use case, saving you money, while also making it easy for you to expand the editor’s capabilities as the need arises.

PDF Converter Services 10.1.2 - PDF Forms Export

Posted at: 12:03 on 22 October 2021 by Muhimbi

PDFConverterServicesBox4_thumb3

Like our range of SharePoint products, after years of mammoth releases, we are changing our cadence to smaller and more focussed releases. We will still add big features, just fewer at a time, but more frequently.

Version 10.1.2 of the Muhimbi PDF Converter Services is the first of these focussed releases. Don't be thrown off by the small (sub) point release, we are adding a major new feature; the ability to extract data from PDF Forms using the FDF, XFDF and XML standards. Absolute brilliant new functionality for organisations and teams looking to automate PDF Form processing. Extract data using code, and store the results in a database, lists or make decisions based on the value of a field.

For details about this new functionality, check out this blog post.

 

 

We love our American friends, but the sooner this form disappears, the better. At least we can process it automatically now.



A quick introduction for those not familiar with the product: The Muhimbi PDF Converter Services is an ‘on premises’ server-based SDK that allows software developers to convert typical Office files to PDF format using a robust, scalable but friendly Web Services interface from Java, .NET, Ruby & PHP based solutions. It supports a large number of file types including MS-Office and ODF file formats as well as HTML, MSG (email), EML, AutoCAD and Image based files and is used by some of the largest organisations in the world for mission critical document conversions. In addition to converting documents, the product ships with a sophisticated watermarking engine, PDF Splitting and Merging facilities, an OCR facility and the ability to secure PDF files. Separate SharePoint and Cloud-based Subscription services are available as well.
