eg

Is displayed as

Software Company Studioo Product Documentation Document

Reproduction

Create a pdf with the title Software Company Studio™ Product Documentation Document

Go to Configuration Options in options menu
Choose Custom columns and add a new entry
add a column
caption: Title
Field contents [=xpdfsearch.Title]
Apply
Ok
The corrupted title will be displayed

If it ain't broke you haven't tested it enough.

Hi,

sorry for the delayed reply. I've been busy during the week.

Unfortunately there is currently no way to display this character correctly. The problem is that the character is not part of the ANSI character set. It's part of Unicode. This standard requires Total Commander 7.5 and an updated plugin.

I hope the author don't add to much stuff into Total Commander 7.5 and releases the new major version as soon as possible.

Current version 1.05
A new version is ready for download. The new version includes important bugfixes for security problems. I have also added support for extracting Unicode metadata. Total Commander 7.50 is required to display Unicode metadata. Please note that Unicode isn't currently supported for PDfs in file paths containing Unicode and not for full text searches.

The complete list of changes can be viewed online.

ANSI 153

Post by *Clo » 2009-05-03, 20:32 UTC

:) Hi Christian !
The problem is that the character is not part of the ANSI character set. It's part of Unicode.
:shock:
• What about the ANSI #153 character ? ™ ™ ™ ™ ™ ™ ™ ™ ™
- Works here in plain text with Alt+0153:P

Hi Lefteous,

Thanks for the great plugin. I just wanted to ask - would it be possible to add 2 additional fields? Specifically:
- has PDF any comments? [yes / no]
- number of comments in PDF [any number, 0 if no comments]

Regards,
balver

Problems with PDF-version

Post by *Peter » 2011-03-22, 13:59 UTC

Hi

since installing the PDF Pro (incl. Shell extensions) from www.tracker-software.com I have problems to display the correct PDF-version with xPDFSearch - it displays always "1.4". Using Shelldetails with "PDF Version" works fine.

Any ideas?

Edit:
I found two entries in the PDF-File:
Line 1:

Code: Select all

%PDF-1.4
Line 4539:

Code: Select all

<</PageLayout/SinglePage/Version/1.5/Outlines 570 0 R/Pages 6 0 R/PageMode/UseOutlines/Type/Catalog/ViewerPreferences<</DisplayDocTitle true>>>>
Maybe one plugin reads Line 1, other plugin reads Line 4539?

I have PDF-X viewer with the shell extension from www.tracker-software.com installed and have no problems pdfx and xpdfsearch show the same information.
The first line of a pdf file determines the version and in a strange way, %PDF-1.4 is equivalent to Acrobat 5.0. It's the way Adobe started numbering pdf versions (1.0-1.0,1.1-2.0,1.2-3.0 ... %PDF-1.7-Adobe Acrobat 8.0) version 1.7 is the latest and last pdf spec from adobe as that version has become an open iso standard.
what was the difference xpdfs and pdf-x?

I had a bit too much time on my hands so I did a simple experiment, I created a simple text (no images) pdf file version 1.7 (acrobat 8.0), I opened it up with a Hex editor and changed the version number to 1.4 (acrobat 5.0) and I used a few tools to gather info about the file:
Acrobat reported it correctly as a 1.7 pdf
there was a line in the pdf
<</Extensions<</ADBE<</BaseVersion/1.7/
PDF-Xchange (both the reader and the shell extension) said it was a 1.4 pdf as did xPDFsearch. so what's the conclusion? I don't know your pdf is probably damaged as mine was :) and xPDF is one of the best wdx plugins around.

I think that a found the reason of this problem: A PDF can contain two (different) infos about version(s) - at the beginning and in the "document catalog" (??).
