New: TFORMer 8.7 with SVG-Output and "Welding"

2024/03/05 | TFORMer V8.7 - Beta
TFORMer Beta 8.7 with SVG-Output and Welding

We are pleased to announce the latest beta of TFORMer, our label and reporting software. Version 8.7 now additionally supports the SVG output format (Scalable Vector Graphics). SVG files can be displayed directly by browsers and are - as the name suggests - scalable without loss of quality.

These Are the Highlights of Our Implementation:

  • Size-Optimized SVG Files
    To keep the size of the generated SVG files as small as possible, all SVG files can be compressed by TFORMer (*.SVGZ). In addition, only the characters and glyphs actually required by the used fonts are included in the SVG output. Image files, with few exceptions, are embedded in the SVG file only once, even with multiple uses.
  • QR and 2D Codes Are Output As Polygon Paths (“Welding”)
    Composite codes, QR codes, and 2D codes are output as polygon paths in the SVG (instead of individual squares or bars). This process is called "Welding" and is a prerequisite for "printing" codes with cutting machines, such as laser cutters.

A detailed overview of extensions, improvements, and bug fixes can be found in the TFORMer version overview.

Both TFORMer Designer and TFORMer SDK offer SVG support in the beta version. A free test is possible anytime: Download TFORMer V8.7 Beta. We look forward to your feedback!

Document Security: TFORMer 8.6 with PDF-Encryption

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!
