Version 1.30.12

  • Corrected a regression in the configuration of the send settings: a set delay after sending messages was only applied when sending via Outlook

February 21, 2024

Version 1.30.11

  • File name filter: A selection option for the scope has been added. This allows you to specify whether the filter should only apply to the original file name or whether it should apply continuously, i.e. even after renaming.

  • The processing log data when sending mails now also contains CC and BCC recipients
  • When sending mails via SMTP, the server's response is now also available in the log data (if it does not match OK)
  • Fixed bug when using the data source Placeholder: if the name of the rule using the placeholder appeared multiple times in the list, the reading of the available placeholders was stopped at the first rule with the name

January 22, 2024

Version 1.30.4

  • Toggle switch for splitting: Start partial documents with an empty document, start partial documents with the structure and objects of the original document
  • Monitored folders/Example files: the path can be edited, deleting and adding is no longer necessary in any case
  • New Pdfium version
  • Optimizations and bug fixes

December 28, 2023

Version 1.30.3

  • Changes to user-defined date formats could cause incorrect validity in the preview due to a buffer
  • Message window regarding the use of form data: 'Different forms within a profile are not supported. All sample files must have the same form type respectively the same form field names.'

November 17, 2023

Version 1.29.0

  • The previous version of the library is now being used again for the OCR process. Although this produced larger files, it was more compatible with different document types.
  • New parameter 'Path incl. file name' for subsequent execution
  • Support of placeholders also for the subsequent execution

July 23, 2023

Version 1.27.2

  • Some optimizations and error corrections.

July 18, 2023

Version 1.27.1

July 15, 2023

Version 1.27.0

Addditional options for moving files:

  • Move remaining files of the folder to the destination folder as well
  • Wait x seconds for further files
  • Delete the parent folder if it is empty

Addditional options for copying files:

  • Copy remaining files of the folder to the destination folder as well
  • Wait x seconds for further files

July 12, 2023

Version 1.26.4

  • An outdated compiler directive caused the tests of the non-blocking file grouping to give a successful result in the development environment, although this only partially worked in the shipped version.

July 10, 2023

Version 1.26.3

  • In case of several data extraction rules with the same name, only the result of the first data extraction rule was displayed in the path preview (e.g., path preview in the task Move Files). Now the group result is displayed, i.e. the result of the first data extraction rule with a valid value.
  • Processing details - latest entry occasionally showed an ongoing processing even though it was already completed.

Cleanup/Formatting Additions:

  • Remove leading lines until regex is matched
  • Remove leading lines until regex is not matched
  • Remove trailing lines until regex is matched

  • New option in Options -> Processing: Treat moved files as already known (ignore them during regular processing).
  • New option: Also include older, already-known files in the primary subgroup if the filter criteria are met.
  • Bug fixed: Non-blocking processing on primary subgroup was delayed.

July 4, 2023

Version 1.26.1

  • Problem with new tab Processing Details fixed.

July 1, 2023

Version 1.26.0

  • New tab with processing details - shows the currently processed file and the application of the profiles.
  • The license expiration date is now displayed in the window title bar.
  • Error corrected: A file grouping with multiple files in primary subgroup and without a secondary subgroup resulted in a double processing.
  • Error corrected: The file grouping preview failed with multiple files in primary subgroup.
  • Error corrected: File grouping with non-blocking processing - when catching up, the program did wait the set time, although with this processing combination only a one-time check for completeness should be done.
  • Error corrected: When searching for keywords combined with a logical OR, the Case-sensitive (Aa) option was ignored and case-sensitivity always respected instead.

June 19, 2023

Version 1.25.0

  • Monitored folders and sample files can now also be added by specifying a path.
  • Multiple monitored folders can now be removed at once.
  • Missing translation added.

  • Fixed scaling problem in Send task.

June 12, 2023

Version 1.24.1

  • The filter for the path and file name is now evaluated with the current values and no longer with the original values. This means that the filter can additionally be used if one of the preceding profiles changes the file name.

June 12, 2023

Version 1.24.0

  • Completeness of file groupings can now be waited for in a non-blocking mode. In this mode, a group is checked (until the maximum waiting time is reached) on each pass to see if it is complete. If not, the profile is skipped until then. The new mode is activated by default. In Options -> Processing, switching back to the blocking mode is possible.
  • Bug fix: File grouping - unnecessarily long waiting time for optional files with an allowed number greater than 1

June 8, 2023

Version 1.23.8

  • When a cleanup action was switched from Replace to Remove, the replacement text was still used and the action returned an incorrect result as long as the replacement text was not removed.

June 5, 2023

Version 1.23.7

  • Automatic date detection: With invalid date formats, it could happen that the preview incorrectly displayed a valid date, but the processing failed. During date cleanup, the result could differ as well.

June 1, 2023

Version 1.23.6

  • Send PDF files: The input field for the message text now allows ten times the number of characters instead of only 32,000.
  • Missing translations added.

May 29, 2023

Version 1.23.5

  • The preview of file groupings was not based on the current state of the sample files under certain conditions.
  • In the profile settings, the indicator (1) is now displayed for file groupings even if only the primary file group is active.

May 24, 2023

Version 1.23.4

  • Problem solved: Under certain conditions, splitting documents by barcode only worked with QR codes.

May 16, 2023

Version 1.23.3

  • Fixed problem when catching up with activated processing pause.

May 11, 2023

Version 1.23.2

  • When splitting by QR code, an older detection method was still used.
  • A set pause between processing of multiple files was not respected when processing file groups.

May 2, 2023

Version 1.23.1

  • Fixed regression: Only PDF attachments could be sent as dynamic attachments.

April 30, 2023

Version 1.23.0

  • GS1-128 is additionally supported for barcodes.
  • The determined position of the selection rectangle for QR codes was incorrect in some cases.
  • Files made searchable have a significantly smaller file size.
  • The processing order of documents is now ensured by a separate sorting (at a certain point Windows no longer delivered the files sorted).

April 19, 2023

Version 1.22.8

  • "Options -> Processing: pause between processing multiple new files" - the option was not evaluated.

April 5, 2023

Version 1.22.7

  • When sending emails: specifying multiple recipients in the CC or BCC categories resulted in an error.

March 30, 2023

Version 1.22.6

  • Additional variant for splitting documents: 'Separator page with text'. This variant works only for searchable files or files made searchable with OCR in advance.

March 24, 2023

Version 1.22.5

  • Before applying a task, it is checked whether the file meets the filter criteria. Thereby, the current name and not the original name was used by mistake. If the file was renamed as well and a term was added that was not allowed to be included according to the filter criteria, other tasks of the profile were thus no longer applied.

March 13, 2023

Version 1.22.4

  • Optimizations for some international date formats

March 11, 2023

Version 1.22.3

  • Version 1.22.2 in the 64-bit variant still corresponded to version 1.22.1

March 9, 2023

Version 1.22.1

  • Problem solved: Wrong profile name in log after duplicating profiles with file groupings.
  • Some optimizations and error corrections.

March 1, 2023

Version 1.22.0

  • When using the Date data type, automatic date detection can be activated (date format from list, country-specific date format, all known date formats).
  • Filter for QR and barcodes - check for presence and/or the value.
  • Barcodes are now read consistently. Previously, when extracting based on a search term and position based, there was a different routine for identifying barcodes.
  • Subsequent tasks of a profile are no longer applied to the current document when an error occurs.
  • Profile-specific SMTP/Outlook settings.
  • Some optimizations and error corrections.

February 14, 2023

Version 1.21.17

  • The execution of the Rename task now takes again place before copying, so that a copy also receives the new file name.
  • If a file is locked, for example because it is open in Adobe Reader, the operation is aborted and retried at a later time. This affects only the primary file, not secondary files during processing of a file group.

February 8, 2023

Version 1.21.16

  • When determining the data area based on position, the selection rectangle can now be moved closer to the page edges.

February 6, 2023

Version 1.21.15

  • For the 'Query' and 'Query (with list)' data types, an empty query result was always allowed, regardless of whether the 'Allow empty query result' option was active.

January 4, 2023

Version 1.21.14

  • An error occurred when reading PDF files with corrupted image objects.

January 2, 2023

Version 1.21.13

  • When using the Custom Text data source, entering a text is now optional. Furthermore, the data type there is not considered any further. This allows an alternative result by adding a second rule with the same name, for example, if a search term does not occur in all documents.

December 22, 2022

Version 1.21.12

  • Send email with dyn. attachment: the optional specification of the source folder was not optional so far, it was actually required.
  • Send email with dyn. attachment: the software now checks for duplicates when adding attachments.

December 19, 2022

Version 1.21.11

  • Speed improvement when splitting using QR or barcodes.
  • Some optimizations.

December 19, 2022

Version 1.21.10

  • The data type "Query" and "Query (with list)" can now be combined as desired within a rule group (i.e., multiple rules with the same name) with other data types such as text. This makes it possible to check in error cases whether the searched term was contained in the document at all and to specify an alternative result for either case.
  • Bug fixed: query preview always showed a valid result if the assigned result was empty (regardless of whether an empty result was allowed).

December 15, 2022

Version 1.21.9

  • Regression fixed: Splitting by QR codes and barcodes no longer worked properly
  • Some optimizations

December 14, 2022

Version 1.21.8

  • An error could occur when processing larger PDF files.
  • In the rule editor, in the cleanup and formatting section, an error could occur when moving entries.

December 13, 2022

  • When previewing filter results and checking for overlaps, system resources are now taken into account.
  • Dynamic attachments: a part of the settings was cut off at higher resolutions.

December 9, 2022

Version 1.21.5

  • If a file name contained several consecutive underscores, they were unintentionally shortened to one underscore.

December 7, 2022

Version 1.21.4

  • Order changed: the Rename task is now performed after the OCR.
  • There are now several options for the output file resolution when performing OCR.
  • Some optimizations.

December 6, 2022

Version 1.21.3

  • When capturing some QR codes, there was an error message related to the dimensions.
  • The setting options for QR and barcodes have been simplified.
  • Improved detection of vertical barcodes.
  • Improved utilization of multiple processor cores when capturing QR and bar codes on systems with sufficient memory.
  • The position of the detected QR or barcode is now indicated by a green frame.
  • On monitors with low resolution, non-resizable windows are limited to the available space.
  • When sending via Outlook, the Outlook default setting for attaching a possible signature is now taken into account.
  • When sending via Outlook, there is now an additional option: Open message in Outlook.

November 29, 2022

Version 1.21.2

  • The sorting of the file names now corresponds to that of the Explorer (with the exception of its error a.pdf stands behind a - 1.pdf).

November 17, 2022

Version 1.21.1

  • Files can be moved to the recycle bin after successful processing.
  • Some optimizations.

November 9, 2022

Version 1.21.0

  • File groupings for processing related files
  • Merge documents
  • Send PDF files with dyn. attachments - revised and much more flexible
  • Merge PDF files
  • Split by placeholder (start a new document at each change)
  • Cleanup or format with Excel list (column 1: search term, column 2: result)
  • OCR (make files searchable)
  • Save Outlook message as draft only

October 10, 2022

Version 1.20.6

  • Fixed a potential problem when determining the Outlook default account.
  • If settings for sending emails were made or changed from the profile settings and not via Options -> Send settings, the program had to be restarted once afterwards so that the changed send settings were recognized.

July 25, 2022

Version 1.20.5

  • Previewing the filter result and checking for filter overlaps have been split into two separate tabs.

July 11, 2022

Version 1.20.4

  • Speed optimization for the preview of the filter results.

July 7, 2022

Version 1.20.3

  • A problem with switching the current sample file was fixed.
  • Some optimizations.

July 5, 2022

Version 1.20.2

  • There was a problem with the latest version of a third-party DLL, so its previous version is now used.

July 4, 2022

Version 1.20.1

  • When splitting, the value "Exclude documents with less than X characters" could not be changed.

July 4, 2022

Version 1.20.0

  • The content of QR codes or barcodes can be read and used as placeholders.
  • Documents can be split by QR codes or barcodes.
  • Additional options for a subsequent program when splitting: execution only once (after successful run), execution after each new partial document, execution once after splitting has been performed.
  • Support of the period Current Day when automatically sending or saving an Excel report.
  • Correction: Automatic sending of the Excel report now also works via Outlook.
  • Since Microsoft recently disabled the SMTP and EWS protocols for Exchange Online, only a local Exchange server can be supported as a third sending option for sending emails.
  • "Search whole word" option for the data types Query and Query (With List).
  • For data extraction rules, previous extraction rules can be used in the new data source Placeholders.
  • Support of using a filter list with the filter type Does Not Contain.
  • Multiple recipients are now supported when sending via SMTP.
  • Some optimizations and corrections.

February 11, 2022

Version 1.19.4

  • Some optimizations.

February 8, 2022

Version 1.19.3

  • Regression fixed: Splitting documents only worked if no filter was set.

January 27, 2022

Version 1.19.2

  • Displaying of Excel report corrected - if no processing took place during the set period, "01.01.0001 - 01.01.0001" was displayed as the period.

January 19, 2022

Version 1.19.1

  • After activating the option to automatically send and/or save Excel reports, this was only performed regularly from the next day, regardless of the selected start time. Regardless of this, automated sending of the report is only possible once per day. Changes to the creation time only take effect on the next day, provided that a report has already been sent or saved for the current day.
  • Locked and thus temporarily ignored files are now included in the error report for traceability purposes.

January 12, 2022

Version 1.19.0

  • When checking filter results, filter overlaps are now also displayed.

In this context, filter overlaps mean that

  1. several profiles monitor the same folder and
  2. at least one of these profiles would also process the sample files of another profile due to insufficient filter criteria and
  3. that an error occurred during the test processing of these sample files.

For example, 2 profiles could exist that process logs and invoices from the same company from the same source folder Scans. As filter criterion, only the company name is specified. If the log profile does not find the term "Protocol no." in the file to be processed because an invoice was scanned, then the processing of the file would be aborted and an entry would be added to the tab Error in the log area. This source of error should thus become avoidable.


January 7, 2022

Version 1.18.2

  • Further improvements in processing rotated PDF pages made searchable afterwards.
  • Some optimizations.

January 7, 2022

Version 1.18.1

  • Support for rotated PDF pages made searchable afterwards.

December 28, 2021

Version 1.18.0

  • There is now a notification if a folder is monitored by multiple profiles, but the extraction rules do not contain any filters (as this would lead to processing errors).
  • Some optimizations.

December 15, 2021

Version 1.17.1

  • Some optimizations.

December 7, 2021

Version 1.17.0

  • Support of placeholders for the message subject.
  • Error fixed: when using static attachments, the currently processed file was added to the message once again as well (exclusively when sending via SMTP).

December 7, 2021

Version 1.16.0

  • Additional filter for the path of the file (excluding filename).

December 6, 2021

November 17, 2021

Version 1.14.0

  • Using the printer's default settings (ignoring page settings) is now activated on a profile-specific basis rather than globally in the options. This allows individual settings to be made for different printers.

November 15, 2021

Version 1.13.1

  • When determining the email recipient address from a CSV file, a crash occurred if the file was locked by Excel.
