FlowPaper 2.4.9 Release Notes

We hope all of you on the northern hemisphere had a good summer, we have been super busy to rebrand our product and to also provide you with a new fresh build. We know some clients have had to wait for this longer than usual due to the extra work we had to do when changing product name from FlexPaper to FlowPaper, but we feel that we’re back on track now and should be quick to respond to requests going forward. We’re sorry for any inconvenience in this.

There are a couple of interesting new features this month, mainly the ability to create web publications for Adobe Cordova (PhoneGap) and greater control over individual elements in FlowPaper Elements. This area will be further expanded in the coming months. We’re rolling out our desktop publisher first this week with the server builds for Classic and Zine following shortly after.

Here’s the list of changes that were made during August:

  • Fixed an issue related to the color selector not withdrawing after changing annotations tool (Classic)
  • Fixed an issue related to fitting the page horizontally when the page is rotated caused incorrect fitting (Classic)
  • Fixed an issue where a rotated page with annotation marks would rotate the text inside the marks as well (Classic)
  • Fixed an issue where clicking on text selection note multiple times after selecting color would cause misselection in selected color (Classic)
  • Fixed an issue where the zoom slider wouldn’t be re-enabled on touch enabled desktop browsers when switching to two-page and back to portrait (Classic)
  • Small adjustments to the Elements viewer and its text spacing routine for evenly spaced out text fragments (Elements)
  • Fixed an issue where going from 10 pages to all pages in preview when working with two-fold publications in Elements caused one of the pages not to render properly (Elements)
  • Fixed an issue where one of the Zine styles (with the toolbar in the bottom) would misposition the toolbar (Zine)
  • Updated our php sample scripts to use mysqli for PHP 7.x and higher (Classic)
  • Fixed an issue where coming out of full screen using the toolbar button in IE11 would cause the viewer to be incorrectly resized (Zine)

  • Fixed an issue where some sub sets of standard fonts were not being converted (Elements)
  • Fixed an issue where matching similar fonts didn’t produce matches in the final copy (Elements)
  • Fixed an issue where mouse wheel scrolling would cause the page to scroll if the viewer was smaller than the viewport (Zine)
  • Fixed an issue where searching using an empty string would generate an error in the viewer (Classic, Zine)
  • Fixed an issue where navigating quickly next was not coherent with navigating quickly to previous pages (Classic)
  • Fixed an issue where entering page numbers in the print dialogue wasn’t possible when text annotations were shown behind the dialogue (Classic)
  • Fixed an issue where the publisher was unable to open the publication in some cases and generating the error UnexpectedResponseException(0) (Desktop Publisher)
  • Added the ability to move around text elements in the publisher (Elements mode)
