FlexPaper 2.3.4 Release Notes

We have started rolling out version 2.3.4 today. We will first be updating our zine viewer and will be updating the classic and annotations at the end of this week.

How to update:
This release does not require you to republish any of your documents so if you want to install the update without republishing your documents then simply copy and replace the following resources from the distribution file that you are using:

  • FlexPaperViewer.swf
  • js/ (directory)
  • css/ (directory)

Significant changes in this release:

  • Fixed an issue where the “+” character in file names caused documents not to open in desktop publisher
  • Improved the ability to load images in Zine Flash version
  • Improved desktop publisher stability with further fallback added for previewing documents
  • Fixed an issue where unnessecary pages would be downloaded when printing in split mode under HTML5
  • Fixed an issue where the toolbar wasn’t shown in full screen on IE9, IE8
  • Fixed an issue where excess print margin was added to pages when printing in split mode using HTML5
  • New preview option added for Desktop Publisher that gives you the option of using either vectors or bitmaps when previewing your publication. Some publications preview faster using bitmaps so we hope that having this option gives you greater flexibility
  • Fixed an issue where opening the viewer in full screen using FullScreenAsMaxWindow wouldn’t close the window if clicked again. Clicking the Esc key will also exit the full screen mode
  • Fixed an issue where it was possible to reply to marks in the annotations viewer even if the mark had been made read only
  • Fixed an issue where pinching on Android in single page mode caused the viewer to sometimes get stuck while pinching
  • Further improvements to the touch device pinching of the Classic viewer
  • Fixed an issue where drawing in the annotations viewer on mozilla/firefox would cause the line to appear from the wrong end of the pen
  • Fixed an issue where our modal window was causing warings or errors on IE8/IE9 when used together with jQuery 1.11
  • Fixed an issue where the annotations viewer could not create marks using the asp.net scripts due to a missing column in the insert sql statement
  • Additional checks added for MSIE to avoid panning on touch devices when using the drawing tools in the annotations viewer
  • Fixed an issue where author name wasn’t being passed on from annotations marks properly
  • HTML5 rendering routine updated (version 1.1.1)
  • Fixed an issue where FlexPaper was stealing focus even if the control was outside of the browser window
