Known Issues

This chapter contains information about potential issues that you may encounter while using Atalasoft DotImage 11.4.0.

Activation Wizard Fails to Install on Visual Studio 2022

This is a late breaking issue found after certification of 11.4 - The Activation wizard plugin is not installing/working in Visual Studio 2022

Workaround: Use visual studio 2019 or earlier for Activation wizard


You can just download and run the exe directly

11.4 Activation Wizard

10.7 Activation Wizard (Use this one but select proper version if you run into issues regarding invalid security protocol / TLS version while running the 11.4 wizard)

Translating a file in the root folder fails with OmniPage

1716149: With OmniPage, if you specify an output file to be created in the root folder (such as C:\file.pdf), performing translation with the Translate(ImageSource images, string mime, string fileName) method fails without an error, and no file is created. Subsequent calls with this method also cause translation to fail, even if the output file is not specified to be created in the root folder.

No translation to XPS format after ParallelProcessing switching

1621594: Translating to XPS format and then switching the ParallelProcessing option (from false to true or true to false) prevents subsequent XPS translations.

Swiss QR codes not read if Symbology is set to All.

1330253: When Symbology is set to All, Swiss QR codes cannot be read by BarCodeReader.

Aztec codes not read

1287182: Aztec codes are not read when AutoThreshold is true. Aztecs are read when AutoThreshold is false.

Drag and drop inconsistent with 2 horizontal thumbnailers

1213959: If a page includes two horizontal thumbnailers, drag and drop works successfully for the top thumbnailer. With the bottom thumbnailer, drag and drop works only after the top item is removed.

  • 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.

Unable to upload file from library on iPhone or iPad on some iOS versions.

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.

Error when attempting to open document containing annotation without appearance

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.

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 (Web Document Thumbnailer) 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.
