  Release Notes for version 1.2.1

Improvements and Bug Fixes

  • On Windows, the ShrinkToFit algorithm for printing has been corrected for more precise printing, particularly on non-postscript (PCL) printers
  • On Mac the printing algorithm now automatically detects whether pages should be output in landscape or portrait orientation, so the user does not have to manually specify the orientation in the Page Setup dialog box
  • A new optional parameter, #ShrinkToFit was added to the print method for both Windows and Mac to provide the possibility of turning off the automatic shrinking of documents to the paper size, via Lingo
  • In previous versions of Impressario, PDF link file names were converted internally. This caused problems for some cross-platform movies and in cases where the PDF documents resided on network drives, hyperlinks to other PDFs did not work [fixed]


  • The Find dialog box does not function correctly on Mac, in Director MX 2004. Check INM Impressario's knowledge base article for a sample workaround solution
  • On Mac, 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

Special Considerations

  • Actions encoded within PDF documents are not supported, except for hyperlinks.
  • Plug-ins, such as QuickTimeT and FlashT, are not supported.
  • Shockwave® is not supported.
  • PDF document pages that contain large, high-resolution images (1MB) may be slow to display and interact with.
  • 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 Enhancer, on the related products page, for a tool that converts PDFs to RGB colorspace.)
  • With some print drivers, PDF pages that are cropped may not printed properly.
  • Text fields support most high-ASCII characters in the 1252 character set (Windows ANSI). However, there are a few rare characters that are not supported in Impressario text fields. Please see the list of unsupported characters for more precision.
  • Only solid borders or no borders are supported on form controls; no dashes, beveled, etc.
  • Text is displaced slightly when fields are edited manually; after leaving the text field, the correct text position is restored.
  • The character limit for text fields is 254 characters.
  • Multi-line text fields can be viewed but not edited. GetFields() correctly retrieves the text of multi-line fields, but SetFields() does not account for line breaks and treats the field as it would a single-line field.
