1796414: Document conversion failed using KFXConverter if the file name contained a colon (:) in it.
1793725: Document conversion failed with an error message similar to the following.
"The document message.eml is rejected because it could not be normalized to PDF/A. Error: Document conversion failure Document Conversion failed with exit code 1".

1792635: Empty WQM batches were created.
1788347: Sometimes, after converting an Excel file, the values in the converted file were different from the values in the original file. This issue occurs when the functions in the Excel cells are executed during the conversion. A new flag, "RecalculateOnOpen", has been added to the [EXCEL2PDF] section in KFXConverter.ini. You can use this flag to control the execution of functions in the Excel cells while converting an Excel file.

Flag values
False (default) = The functions in the cells are not executed during the conversion.
True = The functions in the cells are executed. However, user-defined functions are not supported.

Note: If the KFXConverter.ini file already exists and does not contain the "RecalculateOnOpen" parameter in the [EXCEL2PDF] section, do the following:
Open the KFXConverter_Default.ini file in an editor.
Copy the "RecalculateOnOpen" parameter from the [EXCEL2PDF] section.
Paste the parameter into the KFXConverter.ini file under the [EXCEL2PDF] section.
Save and close the KFXConverter.ini file.

1684125 – Import password protected zip in native format

1677363 – Plug-in produces too many log files which can fill up the disk.

1642956 – US dollar symbol changed to UK pound symbol during .xls conversion using the kfxconverter. When an .XLS (Excel 97-2003) file containing “$” symbols was imported into Kofax Capture via Kofax Import Connector, all the “$” were converted to “£”.

1647674 – MS Graph Connection with Proxy not working.
1654622 – MC_Email handles count increase and ports get exhausted. Message Connector was not closing connections whenever there was error polling an IMAP server. This resulted in ports exhaustion.

1634356 – HEIC to PDF conversion results in a very large PDF file.When the attached HEIC image file did not have compression type assigned (that is, “Undefined”), the conversion of such file to PDF resulted in a very large file. To update compression types for input image files, do the following:

Note: Following changes are only applicable to the input images for which no compression type is assigned, that is, compression type value is ‘Undefined’.

  1. Open the following file in a text editor. C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\KIC-ED\MC\Scripts\image2pdf.bat in a text editor.
  2. Search for the “set ENABLECOMPRESSIONE” string and set its value to YES. For example, set ENABLECOMPRESSION=YES
  3. Search for the “set CUSTOM_COMPRESSION_TYPE” string and set the compression type. For example, set CUSTOM_COMPRESSION_TYPE=BZIP
    Note: You can configure one of the following compression types: None, BZip, Fax, Group4, JPEG, JPEG2000, Lossless, LZW, RLE or Zip.
