    New in this EngageOne Designer / Generate / Content Author / Interactive Editor Release

    EngageOne® Designer - PDF Publish compliance with Microsoft Edge for Unicode based languages
    Designer Publish for PDF has been updated for the following languages :
    • Design editor "Unicode Language"
    • Chinese
    • Japanese
    • Korean
    • Arabic
    • Thai
    .. so that the published PDF "Character Identifier font / Character Map" (CID /CMap) fonts now adhere to the PDF Character Map specification.

    This means that republishing the above and all other "Unicode" based languages :
    • Generate PDF output will now display these languages correctly when using "Strict PDF Standard" PDF Readers such as Microsoft Edge.
    • Will allow successful validation against the PDF/A-1b standard, when the "PDF/A" Designer PDF device option is enabled.

    Windows 10 Note :
    Current Windows 10 / Server 2016 font versions such as "Arial" and "Calibri-Light"  when published to Unicode languages may fail PDF/A-1b validation due to changes in these Microsoft fonts. In such cases please source stable PDF/A compliant fonts from other font vendors.

    EngageOne® Generate - PDF/A conformance for "Identity-H" Unicode language resources
    Generate PDF Output for PDF resources published for the above Unicode based languages using Designer PDF device "PDF/A" and "Identity-H" options will now validate against the PDF/A-1b standard.

    EngageOne® Generate - Enhanced error reporting for missing images
    Generate has been updated so that the previous misleading "image metric not found" abort is no longer reported. 
    New Generate abort messages have been added for this scenario :

    • Where the Image name is known and can be reported ;
      • GEN0778A - Reporting Image Name, Format,  Resolution , Width, Height and Version GUID
    • Where the Image name and attributes are unknown and cannot be reported ;
      • GEN0779A -  Reporting Image version GUID only
