Version history and all changes to Online2PDF.com

Hint: An overview of all features including a detailed documentation is available at Features

Version 7

Version 7.5 (January 6, 2017)

  • Update 2 (February 9, 2017): bug was fixed when some conversions were not completed and instead a timeout message occured; furthermore the character encoding of PDF export was improved
  • Update 1 (February 1, 2017): When a read-protected PDF without password was converted, an incorrect error message was returned (i.e. that the file is broken or not supported instead of giving a hint that a password is required and has to be entered before the conversion)
  • Much higher upload and download speeds
  • Faster conversions
  • Improved the conversion from PDF to PDF and the PDF export (PDF to Word, Excel, Powerpoint)
  • Improved (O)XPS to PDF conversion

Version 7.4 (December 8, 2016)

  • PDF files can be converted to PNG image files. This image format is useful for PDFs having (vector) graphics and text and needs much less file size than JPG image files. But in contrast to that, JPG is still better for PDFs having photos or scanned pages.
  • Image to PDF: the orientation of images can be defined in the options now (see the tab "Image-to-PDF").
    There you can choose between "Original orientation" (as before) and "Automatic orientation", which rotates images regarding the Exif metadata included in the image files (if available).
    Until Windows 8.1 the Exif metadata of image files were ignored in the "Windows Photo Viewer". Therefore for all these users the "Original orientation" is selected by default for the conversion.
    For Windows 10 users the "Automatic orientation" is selected by default from now, so that all the images are converted the same way as they are displayed in the "Photos App" in Windows 10, because in the "Photos App" the Exif metadata are taken into account for the orientation of images.
    This behavior can be changed manually, of course. Additionally, there are many other options to rotate images.
  • Excel to PDF: the date separator (dot or slash) is applied correctly now when choosing a date language in the converter settings (e.g. DD.MM.YYYY for German or DD/MM/YYYY for other languages). This date language has to be defined explicitly in the converter settings under the tab "Excel".
  • Fixed a bug when converting images to PDF: the image size in the PDF was applied incorrectly in some rare cases when the option was selected to choose the orientation of the PDF page automatically.

Version 7.3 (September 25, 2016)

  • Fixed a bug for PDF to JPG: when multiple PDF files were converted concurrently to JPG, then an incorrect directory hierarchy was created in some cases inside the ZIP file with wrong file names and file extensions.
  • Excel to PDF: it is possible to define the language for the dates in Excel files at the preferences tab "Excel". This affects all cell formattings which depend on the region and language of the user.
  • PDF to Excel: the language setting "English (US)" has also impacts on the PDF to Excel conversions, in case the date is ambiguous (for example 01/03/2010 stands for January 3, 2010 in USA, but in United Kingdom it means March 01, 2010). This will be taken into account from now to define the correct internal date for the particular cells in Excel.
  • When converting to PDF, containing E-Mail addresses in the PDF could not be invoked.

Version 7.2 (June 19, 2016)

  • Update 3 (June 29, 2016): Fixed a problem where links and bookmarks were wrongly encoded when a protection was applied to a PDF document
  • Update 2 (June 27, 2016): Fixed a problem where a border was applied when using a customized layout (only by using the option "1 page per sheet")
  • Update 1 (June 21, 2016): Fixed a problem where some special characters in links and bookmarks in PDFs were wrongly encoded
  • Fixed a bug when converting TIFF to PDF: for some TIFF files the PDF output resulted in a blank page
  • When applying a multipage layout it is possible to use a border (useful for Powerpoint slides)
  • Improved compression for PDF files
  • Fixed a bug in external links when the PDF page layout was changed

Version 7.1 (June 5, 2016)

  • Update 1 (June 6, 2016): Fixed a problem which sometimes produced a much bigger PDF file size
  • Word to PDF: Fixed a problem when using single-quotes ( ' ) with some particular font families: there were some visual differences of the characters in the whole line (only for particular zoom values and maybe for printing)
  • Word to PDF: Fixed a problem when "Track changes" was enabled in the Word document: when using double-quotes there were wrongly tracked changes
  • Powerpoint to PDF: Fixed a problem where some pages were wrongly rotated during the conversion (due to a majority of vertical text on that slide)
  • PDF to Powerpoint: optimization of runtime
  • The processing of PDF and XPS files was improved
  • Images to PDF: improved compression and therefore smaller files while retaining the same quality
  • Images to PDF: the option 'Black-and-White (Monochrome)' is addtitionally selectable in the Compression settings to convert the image in real single color black instead of in gray scale (which is useful for scanned text having bright color and which is difficult to read)

Version 7.0 (April 3, 2016)

  • Redesign of the website and improved user interface
  • Support for smartphones and tablets

Version 6

Version 6.8 (March 10, 2016)

  • Publisher to PDF: Fixed a problem regarding the predefined page size and page layout. When choosing the layout option "One page per sheet" in Publisher, then the A4 page size was applied in some cases, even though the original page size was another one. Therefore, with immediate effect, when choosing the layout option "One page per sheet" in Publisher you will always get the original page size when converting the file to PDF - and independently of the predefined paper size in the Publisher printer settings.

Version 6.7 (February 12, 2016)

  • Image-to-PDF: New option in the Image-to-PDF settings. It is now possible to use the original image size as PDF page size (instead of standardized page sizes like A4, A3...).
  • Hyperlinks in PDF files to local files are now supported (also in Word and other Office files hyperlinks to local files are converted properly)
  • New option in the View settings: for "Zoom setting" and "Page layout" the option "Use the default settings of the PDF viewer" is available. In this way no explicit view settings are saved in the PDF file. Instead the default settings of the PDF Reader are applied.
  • Moreover a problem is fixed in the Adobe Reader with activated option "Restore last view settings when reopening documents", so that the previously viewed page is now displayed correctly when reopening the PDF.

  • Improvements for Word to PDF conversions (optimized fonts, support of markups)
