Scanner template for 4.1 missing?

I'm trying to upgrade a Clarion 6.3 app using the 3.6 PDF-tools to the latest PDF-XChange. The latest version appears to be a version 4.1 (which I'm guessing the website refers to as version 5.0)

If I add the 4.0 global toolbox extension I see where I can add a 4.0 scanning template, but if I choose the 4.1 global toolbox extension then I don't see any scanner support extension to add. I also don't see a TPL for it in the 3rd party template folder like i do for 36 and 40.

Hi David!

The 4.0/4.1/5 is a bit of a mixup. PDF-Tools is still in the 4.0/4.1 releases, but we recently released PDF-XChange Driver 5.0 and that may be the cause of the mixup.

As for the Scanning template, 4.1 represented a major rewrite and consolidation of the multitude of add-on templates to the basic PDF-Tools templates. What used to be many add-on global templates have been reduced to a number of checkboxes on the PDF-Tools 4.1 Global template, General tab.

On the PDF-Tools 4.1 Global template, General tab, is a checkbox called Enable Scanning Support? Simply check that to enable scanning in PDF-Tools 4.1. You will then be able to add the PDF-XChange Scanning Procedure Template 4.1 to your procedure, as well as the optional PDF-XChange Select Source Control Template 4.1.

I suggest you check out scnpdf41.app.
