KeyesOverlay Summary

KeyesOverlay (Map Spooled Files to PDF)

 

KeyesOverlay is a revolutionary new tool that rapidly converts standard *SCS printer data into professional documents, in either black and white or full color. It is used in conjunction with (and requires) either KeyesArchive, KeyesPDF, or KeyesMail.

 

Individual documents, such as Invoices or Purchase Orders, can be prepared with overlays, and can include things like Barcodes or MICR fonts. Or, it can be used to make large reports easier to read, complete with PDF bookmarks.

 

Easily turn standard printer data like this...

 

into professional full color documents.

Details

  • Reports

    Make ordinary report data like this...

     

    easier to navigate by changing fonts, color, sizes and adding bookmarks.

     

  • Interactive PDF Forms

    KeyesOverlay can create Interactive Forms for your customers to fill out and e-mail or submit back to you. A kLink server can receive submitted data. You can prefill some of the fields with printer data, if desired.

     

  • PC Development Tools

    KeyesOverlay comes with development tools to help you create overlays and to map your printer data onto the PDF documents. Overlays can be created using a print driver that we supply, called ImageMaker, with any PC application.

     

    Your overlays will be converted to TIFF images and placed on our MappingTool development screen. The program will then automatically map your spooled file data onto the overlay for you. You may then customize the document by removing or adding fields, changing the location, the fonts, sizes, color and other attributes for each field.

     

    Reports can be quickly customized to make important information stand out. With a few clicks of the mouse you can teach the system how to recognize important data in your reports. You then tell it how to present the different types of information on the page.

     

  • Application Program Interface

    There are no KeyesOverlay API's. After creating a map member, for a document, you will code this member name in the Front Side Overlay parameter of a spooled file. When the spooled file is processed by our other products, KeyesOverlay will create the PDF.

    The software can be easily downloaded from the KeyesOverlay Downloads section and installed on any IBM i (i5, iSeries, AS/400) computer in its own library.

    08/09/2012 - Allow Map Commands in Spooled File

    Map Commands can now be included in your Spooled Files. This feature gives you the capability to change the Map Member used for each page of a spooled file.

    04/05/2012 - Allow different pages to be transferred to Mapping Tool

    Sometimes the first spooled file page is not the one that you want to generate an overlay for. The desired page number may now be specified to be transferred to the IFS for the mapping process.

    09/27/2011 - Add Undo and Redo functions to Mapping Tool

    Up to 100 of the last changes can be undone, using the new Undo function. If you undo too much, the Redo function can put the changes back.

    08/08/2011 - Moved all Page Dimensions to Page Header

    The Page Dimensions, including the Margins and Spooled file size, have been moved to the Page Header tab. The Page Dimensions are used by the Mapping Tool to automatically paint the spooled file data to the page.

    07/25/2011 - Add drawings and headings to Mapping Tool

    The Mapping Tool will now allow you to draw your forms overlay directly on the page, while viewing the complete document. You are able to draw lines and boxes, using a mouse, around the spooled file sample data - to form your overlay. Boxes can be filled with any color and can have square or rounded corners. Headings are added and sized also using the mouse.

    This capability will allow you to create an overlay directly within the Mapping Tool, rather than importing an image from other sources, if you prefer. Drawing around existing printer data will allow the positioning of the lines and boxes to be easier and more precise.

     

  • KeyesOverlay Version 5.0

    01/12/2011 - Add OCR-A Extended Font

    Image Commands can now be included in your Spooled Files. This feature gives you the capability to place images in your documents. Any TIFF image, including pictures, that you have stored in the IFS can be printed on the page.

    You can place Image Commands anywhere you wish in your spooled file pages. When KeyesOverlay converts the spooled file to a PDF document, the images will appear on the page where you printed the commands.

     

  • KeyesOverlay Version 4.1

    08/11/2010 - Enhancements to Mapping Tool

    Enhancements have been added to the Mapping Tool. These enhancements will make it easier and faster to generate your documents:

     

    1) When exporting new fields to your document, they will be placed on the page where they fall in the spooled file. This makes it faster and easier to add and reposition a new field.

     

    2) When you use the Map All Rows tool. Fields are all fixed in position and attributes on the page, rather than being relative to the previous field. This makes changing individual fields much easier, as those changes will not affect other fields below the one that you are working on.

     

    3) New tools called Anchor and UnAnchor have been added to the tool bar. These tools can be used to either Anchor fields in place, or to UnAnchor fields. When you UnAnchor a field, it becomes relative to the field above it. This makes it quite easy to move groups of fields or change the attributes of a group of fields.

     

    4) Multiple fields can be selected for Copying, Moving, Deleting, Anchoring, or UnAnchoring. This makes it fast and easy to make changes to multiple fields, at one time.

    07/29/2008 - Add Password Encryption for PDF's

    You may supply user and/or owner passwords, if you want to encrypt the PDF documents that KeyesOverlay creates. The passwords can be up to 32 characters long, each. Users will be limited to opening and possibly printing and annotating the PDF's. Otherwise, only an owner will be able to change a PDF.

     

  • KeyesOverlay Version 3.0

    02/05/2008 - Duplex Printing

    A new type of image has been added to KeyesOverlay, that is used for Duplex printing. If you define a Duplex image in the Map file, that image will be sent to the PDF document after every spooled file page. It is intended to be used with Duplex printing, to supply the back-side image.

    01/17/2008 - Auto Mapping

    KeyesOverlay's Mapping Tool has been extensively enhanced so that it will now automatically map your spooled file to the page, with optional overlays or images. It does this for any of the 3 processing modes. All you have to do now is to provide the page dimensions, margins, and spooled file size. The system will automatically generate the appropriate code to map your spooled file to the page.

    This makes mapping spooled files very quick and easy. You are then welcome to customize parts of the mapped spooled file to make important information stand out.

     

  • KeyesOverlay Version 2.3

    The MICR font can now be included in your map file, to make documents such as Checks.

     

  • KeyesOverlay Version 2.1

    07/24/2006 - Added Full Page processing mode

    A new method of defining a Map has been added. The new method will make it much easier to map an image to a full page of spooled file text, without having to map individual fields or lines. Using the new Full Page processing mode, a single definition line, will map the entire spooled file to the page with the desired font and font attributes.

    Added Before and After attachments

    Two new types of images were added to the Mapping process. "Before" images will appear on a page added just before the first page of each document in the PDF. "After" images will appear on a page added after the last page of your documents. These new image types make it easy to add things like Terms and Conditions pages to your documents.

     

  • KeyesOverlay Version 2.0

    02/10/2006 - Added Logic processing

    The system now includes the capability to define Logic selection when mapping spooled files to a PDF. Image Logic records give you a method of selecting when or what images are placed on each page that is mapped. Field Logic records give you a method of selecting what type of text will be mapped for each line of a spooled file.

    Added Line Mode Processing

    With the new Field Logic capability you can now define a different type of spooled file mapping that we call Line Mode. Line Mode processing allows you to map free form reports to a PDF, such as Sales Reports or G/L Trial Balances, with different attributes assigned to the different types of lines that are in the report. For example, Headings or Totals can be included on the page with different fonts or colors.

    Added Bookmark capability

    The new Field Logic and Line Mode processing capability will also give you the ability to automatically create Bookmarks in the PDF to aid the user in navigating the different sections of a report. 2 levels of Bookmarks are available.

     

  • KeyesOverlay Version 1.1

    08/31/2005 - Add DBCS Capability for Spooled Files

    Spooled files that have been created with "Open DBCS" (Double Byte Character Set) fields can now be processed with an Overlay. However, any bracketed DBCS fields that exist in the data stream should not be mapped to the document. They will not be converted to the appropriate graphics characters.
