Release Notes, PDF2IMG

PDF2IMG v 3.3.0

May 30, 2019

  • Resolved an issue where a single page in a PDF document was taking 15 to 20 minutes to render because of vector images. Changed the setting for the kPDPageThreadIPParse flag in drawParam to default to multi-threaded processing, rather than the original single threaded processing. PNG, TIF and JPG images covered.
  • Corrected a problem where PDF2IMG was failing to complete processing for a PDF document where a customer had set the Names parameter to “All” for the DeviceN color space. This violates a rule in the ISO 32000 standard, followed by PDF2IMG, that reserves DeviceN to Separation only.  Set the relaxation flag (PDPrefSetAllowRelexedSyntax) to true to ignore this specification. Relaxing this parsing restriction allows PDF2IMG to continue to draw the pages to TIF images. The user needs to add the “-relaxParseSyntax” option to the command line syntax.
