Miraplacid Product Line Update
Miraplacid released Miraplacid Publisher 5.1 and Miraplacid Text Driver 4.3. Miraplacid Publisher makes snapshot images of document pages. Miraplacid Text Driver extracts text from documents.
In a Perfect World, each software would allow you to save document as image or save it as a plain text. Each software would be able to read files saved from one another, even old and odd one. Miraplacid Publisher and Miraplacid Text Driver are not cancer cure, but they definitely can help in the most of cases.
Miraplacid Publisher is for saving document pages as images. Miraplacid Text Driver is for extracting plain or formatted text from a document. After installation on PC, both products appear as a new printers in the system. All the documents printed to these "printers" will be previewed and processed. In Miraplacid Publisher user can scale and crop the image, adjust colors and gamma, then save in JPEG, BMP, PNG, PDF, TIFF or TGA format, upload to FTP or HTTP server or print to a real printer. In Miraplacid Text Driver user can edit extracted text, then save it to the hard drive, upload to a server or print.
When "Auto Save Mode" is turned on, products do the job without any user interaction. {{DATE}}, {{TIME}}, {{IDENTITY}}, {{PAGE}} or {{JOB}} in the file name or path force every document to be saved to an individual file. These wild cards will be replaced with current date, time, some unique number, page number and print job id respectively.
Both products are integration-friendly. Text extraction and image conversion can be controlled by an external software or script. For not so rare cases when general purposes products do not fit the system, Miraplacid offers affordable custom solutions based on Miraplacid Text Driver and Miraplacid Publisher.
New Miraplacid Publisher works faster, has improved TIFF conversion algorithm, and new features for server upload. New Miraplacid Text Driver can put extracted text to the clipboard, add page break marks, and provides better compatibility with some software.
