Berlin – 26 November 2015 – callas software, market leader for automated PDF quality control and archival solutions, today releases an update for its pdfChip product line. pdfChip converts HTML into good, standards-compliant PDF documents. The pdfChip 1.1 update adds a number of features that were identified in projects customers realized with pdfChip, especially when it was used to create long, dynamic documents.
Making integration easier
Using pdfChip to convert an HTML template to a good PDF file is straightforward and easy. pdfChip 1.1 focuses on making integration of the tool in a larger project just as easy by adding a number of features.
Long, dynamic PDF documents
Long documents, that need to include lists of references such as a list of figures, list of tables or simply a table of contents, were a challenge in pdfChip 1.0. In pdfChip 1.1, callas implemented the new concept of a “list collector”.
pdfChip 1.1 also adds support for the Device-N color space. Device-N is an advanced PDF color space that is essential for content where a number of different spot colors or a combination of CMYK and spot colors is used for page objects like images or vector graphics.
In order to introduce pdfChip 1.1, on December 8 at 4 pm CET David van Driessche will give an English webinar. Please register for the webinar via this link:
Alternatively there is also a German webinar taking place on December 15 at 11 am CET. Please register for the webinar via this link:
