Missing Logos from SAP Smartforms with PDF-XChange Standard (v7)

Hello!

We used to have version 6.0 (Build 319.0) of PDF-XChange Editor Plus along with the printer driver "PDF-XChange Standard V6" on our Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 64-bit computers. If we sent a SAP Smartform with a logo (and text), PDF files generated would contain all the content. No issues at all.

We have now switched to version 7.0 (Build 326.1) of PDF-XChange Editor Plus along with the printer driver "PDF-XChange Standard". If we send the SAP smartform now, we are only getting the text portion. The logo is missing altogether.

Can you please help us with this issue? Are there any settings to be tweaked in the driver?

Thanks
Challu

Hello challuk,
Could I ask that you send us a copy of the documents from v6 and v7 so that we can compare? it is possible that the object is being created, but for some reason or another is being placed behind another object. I would like to investigate this locally to see if we can determine the cause.
If the files contain sensitive information, you can email them to us via Support@tracker-software.com

Hello Challuk,
I have been searching all over our inbox and I am afraid that the files have not arrived yet. If you could resend them and ensure that they are going directly to support@tracker-software.com once they arrive we will be sure to take a look.

Hello Challuk,
It seems this could be an engine issue, as such I will first ask you to try selecting the XPS driver mode from the Printer properties:

After that, if you find that the XPS driver mode does not resolve the issue, I will ask that you generate some printer temp files for us to have the dev team take a look at. This article should help you to generate those:

Daniel,

That was it. Thanks for the quick check and response.

If you still need me to send you the tmp files for your process enhancement verification, do let me know and I will send them across.

Thanks
Challu

Hello together,

I'd like to open this post again.
We also got this problem with missing logos and drawings with problems out of SAP.
We're just bought licenses for all our users. PDF Xchange is now in the rollout-phase on all our clients. (V 327.1)

If we change the mode to XPS it's working correct, but the quality is really really bad. We cannot send any invoice or request in this quality to our customers.
If we leave the mode at GDI the logo and drawings are missing.

With our previous PDF-Printer everything worked correctly (and this one was for free)

What do you need for investigating in this problem?

BR

Marco

Hello Mar_co,

This is most likely due to the version you are rolling out. There were a few issues in builds 327 and 327.1 which cause this to occur, which we should have resolved in 328.0. as we are now in 328.2 I would suggest updating a test machine to this version and checking if the issue persists. If it does, please create printer tmp files for us to investigate, as detailed here. If the issue does not persist, I suggest instead rolling out 328.2.

Kind regards.

Hi,

thank you for the fast reply.
I've tried your suggestion and installed the latest version 728.2 .
But the problem still exists.

I've send you the temp-files to the support e-mail address.

Hope you'll find the bug.
