Re: Save As Dialog Hidden Behind App Window

The driver About box shows: PDF-XChange Printer 2012 Version: 5.5 Build 312.1 Windows 7 Professional x64 (Build 7601: Service Pack 1) Interestingly, after resetting my PC, the problem has gone away. (I have the feeling that it must have been working correctly earlier too or I would have noticed it t...

Save As Dialog Hidden Behind App Window

At least under Windows 7, we are finding that the Save As Dialog open appears underneath the app window. It shows up on the Task Bar, but users often don't see it there and thus think the application is hung when it is just waiting on the modal dialog. The problem is particularly bad if the Saver.Sh...

Re: Terminal Server (RDP) Client Printer Licensing

Thanks for the follow-up. I wasn't clear either in what I said or what I was thinking. What I meant was that from the user's perspective, they select the original end-user printer (e.g. in a printer selection dialog box), and then the application recognizes it as the PDF-XChange printer and creates ...

The sample program and a few of these forum posts have reference to a set of DevMode properties, e.g. DevMode.PapSize. But I can find no mention of this in the documentation. It's not clear to me that we need such a feature, as presumably we can access and set all the DEVMODE properties via the Wind...

Email.Cc and Bcc doc typos

Hi, FYI, it appears to me that the online driver API doc has a couple of typos for the above properties. They show in the doc as "Cc" and "Bcc", but I believe they are case sensitive and must be "CC" and "BCC" respectively, i.e. ALL CAPS. (This also matches the capitalization used in the v3 driver.)...

Re: Bookmarks.DisplayMode doc typo?

It appears to me (from trial and error testing) that the "AllOpened" value of the Bookmarks.DisplayMode property is not recognized, and acts the same as "AllClosed". However, using "0" works as expected. And the other values (e.g. "ByItem" and "OpenToLevel") also seem to work in either numeric or al...

When the Save.ShowSaveDialog is enabled, the dialog starts in the directory last used in a prior save, rather than in the directory corresponding to the Save.File and/or Save.Path value. You can reproduce this in the CExAPI sample program by just enabling the option. You'll see that the dialog comes...

If you mean by server logs the Windows (XP Pro) event viewer, there are no entries relating to this. Mail senders would not normally have access to the SMTP server logs. Does the driver maintain its own error log somewhere?

I am trying to debug failed attempts to send email via SMTP via the driver API. (MAPI works fine.) Is there a log file or some other way to capture information about the SMTP operation to help determine why it is failing (no response from STMP server, authentication error, bad header, etc.)?
