System Requirements

The primary source of information about Atalasoft DotImage requirements and dependencies on other products is the Technical Specifications document posted on Atalasoft website.

New Features

The following features were added to Atalasoft DotImage in version 11.4.0.

Multithreading capability for PDF decoding

The PDF viewer has been upgraded with multithreading to support concurrent rendering of pages, aimed at reducing delays with complex and large pages. Performance impact may be affected as follows:

  • Documents with vector content will experience performance improvements.
  • High page-count documents with rasterized content may experience performance improvements.
  • High page-count documents with vector content, especially if the vector quantity per page is small, may not show substantial performance improvement.
  • Some PDF processing use case types may experience a degradation in performance as a result of parallel orchestration and system resource constraints. These use case types include the following:
    • Using the multiprocessing feature for single page PDF documents.
    • Using the multiprocessing feature for PDF documents without any graphics.
    • Using the multiprocessing feature in one-core CPU environment.

Decoders for additional file types

The decoders have been enhanced to handle a wider range of file formats. The new support includes:

  • .webp files: Decoding for newer web image formats.
  • .msg files: Direct support for decoding email formats.
  • .eml files: Enhanced email decoding capabilities.
  • .html and .txt files: Expanded web and text file decoding.
  • XML files: Broadened support for structured data formats.
  • Visio documents: Now supports Visio diagrams and drawings.

​** .msg files and Visio documents require the Microsoft Office Reader addon.

Tesseract5Engine support

Atalasoft DotImage now supports the Tesseract 5 OCR Engine along with the Tesseract 3 OCR Engine. Usage information specific to Atalasoft DotImage is covered in the Atalasoft DotImage Developer's Guide. See the Tesseract3Engine or Tesseract5Engine class documentation in the API Reference for additional information.

      • On the macOS, this issue occurs with the Chrome, Firefox, or Safari browsers. However, the issue does not occur on an iPad or iPhone, or on an Android OS.
      • On a Windows operating system, this issue occurs with Microsoft Edge but not with other browsers.
    • 1212769: If you use the Safari browser on an iPhone or iPad to upload a file to the Web Document Viewer from the library, the file is not uploaded successfully on some iOS versions.
      • Workaround: To resolve the issue, upgrade to iOS 12.1.
    • 1209493: If you attempt to open and save a document that contains an annotation without appearance, the following error appears:

      • 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.

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