2024/01/23 | TFORMer V8.6
TFORMer Update 8.6 with PDF-Encryption

Dear TFORMer users,

the recently released update of TFORMer, our barcode label and reporting software, brings the following improvements:

What's New?

  • PDF Encryption
    The new version 8.6 improves document security by generating encrypted PDF output files upon request. Corresponding input dialogs, document properties, SDK options, and configuration settings allow fine-tuning of encryption options for optimal security of the generated PDF files.
  • Advanced Output Options
    More complex layouts, such as those with overlapping print areas, can now be designed with finer control over the output position of print areas. Additionally, the new version supports the creation of individual files per output page during image export. The filenames of page-specific output files are adjustable through the Document Name property.
  • Further Improvements
    The new online update check ensures you never miss an update. Barcodes and 2D codes are printed even more precisely, support for color/monochrome printing and printing to files has been expanded, and you can now permanently set default printers or default folders.
    A detailed overview of the extensions, improvements, and bug fixes can be found in the TFORMer version overview.

The update is available as a free download: Download TFORMer V8.6. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Note for existing customers: An update within the same major version (e.g., from V8.5 to V8.6) is free, license keys remain valid, and the API (Application Programming Interface) remains compatible!
