Table row styling
Table row styling allows you to control the way a data record of a dynamic table is presented.
Using this feature you can define, for each data record, the background color, font and other style attributes, as well as the layout and dynamic content. You can also dynamically span a data record over multiple styled rows, or omit a data record altogether.
For example, you can create a table with two designs: blue for debit and green for credit. In the data source, in the “XMPieDesignSelector” column, you will assign each row the required design.
This feature is available for InDesign composition only.
Version 9.5 released May 19, 2019
PDF password protection
A personalized PDF can now have password protection. This increases the security of documents intended to be shared online.
The password is provided as an ADOR. The output is single PDFs, each protected by the password provided by the ADOR.
This capability will also be available via PDF on Demand in Circle in the future. Read more
Dynamic PDF placement box selection
When adding an image box and placing an image ADOR in it, you can select which box will be cropped out of the PDF (in case the ADOR resolves to a PDF) to be placed in the image box.
The crop options include bounding box, art, trim, bleed and media. Read more
Increased composition performance
PersonalEffect composition throughput increased for documents with table autoflow with visibility ADORs.
The performance is up to 20% faster with complex documents.
