Version 5.7001: Released 9/27/2007
Visual CUT XI now uses the Crystal XI R2 SP2 (Release 2, Service Pack 2) runtime
components. To take advantage of the new runtime components, users of prior XI versions
should go through a Remove (using the old msi file) & Install cycle (do not use the Online
Crystal XI R2 provides two new export options: Outlines in Excel Data Only exports and
bookmarks in pdf exports.
You can’t specify these two new export options directly in
automated Visual CUT processing. Instead, open the report in Crystal XI R2 and set the
File, Export, R

Note: a more powerful (control over bookmark labels and color) PDF Bookmark functionality
is already provided by Visual CUT in all versions, but the new functionality allows you to
avoid creating a formula for each bookmark level and is a good choice for simple cases.
Enhanced merging of pdf files (using the PDF_Merge command line argument). During
the merge process, you can now add bookmarks for each input pdf file, so that the user
can easily navigate the merged pdf file. For more detail, see the new user manual section on
"Specifying Bookmarks when Merging PDF Files."
When using PDF_Merge, Visual CUT now retains the original expand/collapse status,
color, and style (bold/italics) of the merged bookmarks.
Enhanced the command line argument for generating a Table of Contents based on pdf
bookmarks (PDF_TOC) so that a bookmark is now generated and linked to the newly
inserted Table of Contents.
Added an option to specify different text for pdf Table of Contents headers.
For example, instead of "Table of Contents" you can use "Table des matières".
For detail see the user manual section on Overriding the default "Table of Contents" Header
Fixed image draw failures that occurred in some pdf exports.
Improved the way page numbers are added (with the PDF_Page_N command line argument)
when the pdf file contains a mixture of rotated (90 degrees) and regular pages.
Fixed an issue when using PDF_Page_N command line argument and specifying the optional
pdf file name without the optional font type.
Improved space use in the Export/Email tab when users increase the window size.
For export formats that have an options dialog, a new button is now visible to the right of the
export format drop-down. This button allows users to easily revisit the export options dialog
for the current export format (no need to change to a different export format and then select
