Version 5.9001: Released 7/21/2008
The XI version of Visual CUT is now packaged with Crystal XI R2 Service Pack 3 (SP3)
Users of prior XI versions can’t use the online update option and must
go through a Remove & Install process in order to update their version.
The XI version of Visual CUT now supports the new standard (rather than legacy) csv export
formatting. To use this option, select "Char Separated Values" rather than "Comma Separated
You can now use the Options dialog (Processing Tab, Display Warning when email
Attachment <> Export File checkbox) to disable the warning message when the email
attachment is not identical to the export file.
Added new Date Constants (Now_Plus_S & Now_Minus_S), which allow specifying
current datetime (for DateTime parameters) or current time (for Time parameters) shifted by a
specified number of seconds. For detail, see the "Date Constants" section of the user manual.
A new PDF_Properties command line argument allows you to set the pdf document
properties of Author, Title, Subject, Key Words, Creator, and Producer.
For more detail, see the section "Setting PDF Document Properties via Command Line
A new PDF_LinkToWeb command line argument allows you to add web browser links
to a web site, email address, or local file (e.g., batch file) hotspots (with or without text)
to pdf files. For detail, see "Adding Web/File/email Hotspot to a PDF File."
A new PDF_AddImage command line argument allows you to add an image to a pdf file
with an optional link to a web site, email address, or local file. This can be useful when
you wish to use a button image as a hotspot indication or when you wish to add a company
logo to a range of pages.
Visual CUT can now export reports to a multi-page TIFF image file by automating the
process of first exporting to PDF and then saving the pdf file as a TIF file. TIF is now a new
format option (in addition to BMP, JPEG, WMF, EMF, EPS, PNG, or GIF) in the
PDF_Save_As command line argument.
For more detail, see "Saving PDF Files to Image Files."
A new PDF_MERGE_Files_to_Layers allows you to merge 1-Page PDF Files into
Layers in a Single PDF File. This is particularly useful for mapping applications where
you users wish to turn on or off the visibility of certain map layers.
Fixed an issue causing Table of Content entries in pdf files to lose their link to pages that are
90 degrees rotated and are subject to page numbering operation.
PDF processing can now be done for very large files. With the previous version, problems
could be experienced with pdf files that are larger than 150 MB.
