Website PDF fails in Preview if created w/Microsoft print to PDF

Post by silverspr » Wed Nov 08, 2017 1:34 am

Ubuntu 16.04
OpenKM CE 6.3.2

HI, not sure where to go with this. A pdf created from a website with the Microsoft print to PDF does not display in preview in CE. If I use the Adobe PDF to create the pdf, the pdf displays in preview. If I use the OpenKM Professional version (on line demo), to open the pdf file created with the Microsoft print to PDF driver, the PDF displays properly. So it appears to only be a problem with CE? Is it related to SWFTools and flashplayer?

The work around is to always use the Adobe PDF print driver.

What does the future hold for the CE document viewer?

thanks

We are nearly to release a new OpenKM version 6.3.5 ( if you compile actual dev branch you will see the flash preview has been changed to HTML 5 solution ). I suggest upgrade from 6.2.x to 6.3.4 and then go ahead with 6.3.5 ( the migration guide until 6.3.5 is updated althought has not been oficially released ).

Thank you jllort.
I am currently on CE 6.3.2 (I liked the batch file uploader and didn't want to lose its functionality).
But the viewer is more important, so the most recent available download version on your download page is 6.3.4.
Is 6.3.4 a cumulative update? Where do I find 6.3.3 if I need to install it first?
Is 6.3.5 available unofficially or did you mean install it when it becomes available?

thanks

From here you can download the old war files https://sourceforge.net/projects/openkm ... rce=navbar

About vesion 6.3.5 has not been officially released, but you can download the source code, build it and follow the steps described in the migration guide to upgrade 6.3.4 to 6.3.5. Really we are at the end of the process of release the version 6.3.5 and probably will not be more changes before we release it. What I'm trying to say is that you can upgrade with actual 6.3.5 code, it is safe doing it.
