Drag and drop inconsistent with 2 horizontal thumbnailers (WebDocumentThumbnailer)

Error when attempting to open document containing annotation without appearance (PdfDocument/PdfGeneratedDocument)

1209493: If you attempt to open and save a document that contains an annotation without appearance, the following error appears:

Atalasoft.PdfDoc.PdfException : Required element N in MLPdfAppearanceDictionary read from file is missing.

Method calls wrong callback function

1204503: The selectPageText method calls the wrong callback function if only the page index is specified.

Workaround: Set null for the second argument:


Document not compliant with PDF/A-2b standard

1197977: On Windows 10, when PdfTranslator is used to create a PDF document, it is not compliant with the PDF/A-2b standard if Verdana is a built-in font. As a result, the width information is inconsistent.

Workaround: Do one of the following to prevent the issue:

  • Using the Atalasoft DotImage API, create a custom FontMapper for the OCR engine and change Verdana to another font such as Arial.
  • Change the built-in font to the version of Verdana provided with Windows 7.

macOS: Installer should not require Administrator rights

1179745: If you do not have Administrator rights, and you attempt to perform the installation for the Atalasoft DotImage Service for macOS, you may be prevented from finishing successfully.

Workaround: To avoid the issue:

  1. From the installer, select Installation Type and click Change Install Location.
  2. On the Select a Destination screen, select Install for me only.
  3. Click Continue to proceed with the installation.

Corrupt thumbnails after inserting page into new document

1121735: After a page is inserted into a new document, thumbnail images become corrupted.

Selection frame becomes detached from annotation after drag and drop

912517: After moving an annotated page from one WDT (WebDocumentThumbnailer) to another, the annotation selection frame becomes decoupled from the annotation itself. As a result, dragging moves only the annotation and leaves the frame behind in its original location.

Workaround: Reloading the page restores the annotation's normal behavior.

Recognize method may return wrong results

864436: When the AbbyyOcrTextRegion region is manually defined, the Recognize method may return the incorrect results. This situation may occur if the text language is not specified for the custom regions, and the engine cannot determine which language to use.

No response from the WCS when using HTTPS

714491: When using Firefox, there is no response from the WCS when using the HTTPS protocol. This issue occurs only for a new user on a computer. The issue occurs because WCS does not copy a certificate to the Firefox repository in this situation.

Saving *.CR2 file after rotating results in error

687417: A "PhotometricInterpretation tag missing error" is displayed when you try to save a *.CR2 file after rotation.

Data overlaid in .ppt file

673624: Currently, slide shapes are rendered as one layer, and text as a second layer. This approach prevents shapes from being rendered on top of text, but it also allows text to overlap.

Additional Documentation

This section supplements the documentation provided with the product with changes and corrections.

OmniPage does not recognize text in rotated regions

When attempting to translate text with rotated and non-rotated regions, only the text in unrotated regions in recognized as text. This has been documented in the OmniPageOcr*TextRegion classes.

GetFrameCount returns incorrect count of images for HEIC files

The GetFrameCount method appears to have returned an incorrect count of images for HEIC files. The reason is that HeifDecoder only counts still images, not the auxiliary burst images.

IsValidFormat method returns false for HEIC files

The IsValidMethod returns false for HEIC files. This is caused by error codes that were not true errors and reported unexpected exceptions.

Text region not rotated in OmniPage

When using OcrTextRotation.Clockwise180 to rotate text regions in OmniPage, the preprocessing result of 180 degrees is used in the final rotation results.
