 Release Notes for version 2.0.2

Improvements and Bug Fixes

  • In version 2.0.1 hyperlinks were disabled if the permissions of the PDF did not allow filling of forms. They are now enabled even if the document is password protected and form filling is not allowed
  • Hyperlinks to external PDFs now go to the correct scroll and zoom of the destination document
  • The INM_HyperlinkClick event now returns the correct scroll and zoom values of the destination
  • Printing multiple copies on Windows [fixed]
  • An error code has been added to check if the start page of a print range is not within the valid page range of the document
  • The Print options dialog box on Mac OS X contains buttons such as "Print to PDF" that were not working, but did not provide any feedback. Now if the user clicks these buttons there is an alert saying that the feature is not supported
  • The Find method now displays a message if the search text is not found, even if the global alert level is set to #critical or #none
  • The Show Scrollbars and Auto-download options, accessible through the Impressario Member Options dialog, were always reset to "On" if the Document Default display options were selected. This is now fixed and they retain the values you set manually
  • The GetStatus and GetError methods were not working properly in version 2.0.1. They are now fixed
  • Upper-ASCII characters are now supported in the Bookmarks on both Windows and Mac.
  • The Zoom Tool algorithms have been changed for better precision when zooming in on small areas of a PDF.
  • The Bookmarks castlib has been updated -- it contains a new handler to enable resizing of the bookmarks panel at runtime, without pixelation of the text
  • In the previous version Impressario would crash when using colored text in form fields with certain fonts [fixed]


  • The Find dialog box does not function correctly on Mac, in Director MX 2004 and in Shockwave. Check INM Impressario's knowledge base for a sample workaround solution for Director MX 2004 projectors. For Shockwave playback on Mac, the recommended workaround is to implement the Find dialog in Director
  • On Mac OS 9, Director's memory partition and the memory allocated to the projector may need to be increased; the exact memory required depends on the size and resolution of the largest page of your PDF document. The minimum suggested memory for projectors is at least 80MB, for printing high-quality
  • DeletePages is not supported on Mac OS 9

Special Considerations

  • Plug-ins, such as QuickTime™ and Flash™, are not supported
  • Comments and notes in PDF documents are not supported
  • Impressario displays images on screen in RGB color. PDF documents created for print, using CMYK color may appear differently in Impressario. (Please see the PDF Enhancerfor a tool that converts PDFs to RGB colorspace.)
  • Alpha channel in PDF documents is not supported
  • PDFs that are encrypted are not fully supported (hyperlinks do not work)
  • PDF document pages that contain large, high-resolution images (1MB) may be slow to display and interact with
  • JavaScript actions encoded within PDF documents are not supported, except for hyperlinks. The workaround solution is to use Impressario Events, and perform the equivalent actions from Director
  • Most high - ASCII characters are supported for text fields. However, there are a few rare exceptions. Please see the list of unsupported characters for more precision
  • Double-byte characters are not supported for form fields
  • The character limit for single-line text fields is 253; for multi-line fields it is 1024.
  • The ReplaceImage() method, used to customize bitmaps within your PDF documents, requires the definition of "containers", which are only supported with Acrobat 6 and higher. The image to be replaced must be a raster (bitmap) image; vector images are not supported
  • For Shockwave deployment, we recommend high-speed Internet access. The Impressario Xtra Verisign package is between 4MB and 5MB and, in addition to that one-time download, you need to take into account the download time for each PDF document displayed
  • In Shockwave on Mac the Find dialog box is not supported - it does not appear
