XIMAGEpdf - Resource Creation Tool

XIMAGEpdf is a resource creation tool that converts single-page PDF files into Xerox Metacode form (FRM) overlays and images (IMG) resources. Outputting standard Xerox resources, FRMs created by XIMAGEpdf can be uploaded directly onto a Metacode printer or to the Solimar® Print Director Enterprise® (SPDE) print server that fully emulates all LPS printer makes and models. The new resources can be used for creating Xerox applications for printing onto any IPDS, PCL, and PostScript printers as well as PDF files for viewing, archiving or ePresentment.

XIMAGEpdf allows you to develop specific printer definitions that represent the printers or other devices that will use the output images (IMG) or forms (FRM). Printer definitions are used to control output locations, color and halftone options, memory usage, and other Xerox and printer-specific settings.

XIMAGEpdf Components & System Specifications

To provide efficient management of the fonts used in the PDF input file, XIMAGEpdf includes the Font Loader utility, which can make fonts available to the conversion without embedding them in the data. Font Loader can also map substitutes for missing fonts. Adding fonts and substituting fonts require the Font Loader. TrueType fonts, Type 1 fonts (.pfa and .pfb files), as well as Type 3 fonts (.pfa files) can be added to the emulation or used as substitute fonts.

To help support legacy Xerox Forms Source Libraries (FSLs), XIMAGEpdf includes the Solimar Compiler, which formats the resource for use on the Xerox printer or with the Solimar® Print Director Enterprise™ (SPDE) XCHANGE modules. Multiple FSL files can be compiled simultaneously. Simply point the FSL compiler to your resources, open the FSL, make any changes and then compile.
