  6. Added: It is now possible to change XMPie’s automatic caching mechanism in the output stream, according to which reusable objects such as Graphic ADORs  are placed into the output file only once and are referenced for all additional records that use the same object.
    Now, if your Graphic or Text File ADOR will be unique for every record in the database, you can disable the caching mechanism by renaming the ADOR object to include .unique at the end of the ADOR name. Similarly, for reusable Text ADORs, it is possible to enable the caching mechanism by adding .reusable at the end of the ADOR object name.
    It is recommended that you change this automatic behavior only if you fully understand the caching mechanism, and the impact of the change.
  7.  Known issue: Legacy PDF production does not work on uCreate Print for MacOS. You can perform the production on the server.
