Other features in Formidable
WIth 64-bit architecture built for CentOS 6 and PHP 5.3, Formidable is now prepared for modern hardware and hosting centers without tweaking.
New languages and alphabets
Formidable 2.7 supports 88 handwriting styles divided into two categories, Languages (as usual) and now also Alphabets.
The more extensive Languages includes both isolated (boxed) and cursive writing style and contains a full set of alphabet and intelligent linguistic resources for recognition of any type of written items. Formidable supports 30 languages.
Webinar about Alphabets.
New languages for this release are Kazakh and Hebrew.
The more limited, yet powerful, Alphabets (88 writing styles) supports isolated writing style, has support for boxed fields and contains country-specific sets of characters, numerals and symbols.
With this implementation, we cover almost the whole world!
Split document view
With the new Viewer in Formidable 2.6 you are able to customize the viewer experience even more. Validate forms in Split document mode where both the handwriting document and the associated result is presented at the same time. View it side by side or on top of each other.
Fully Dynamic Forms
WIth the Fully Dynamic Forms function you may create the form from scratch via an xml-file. Set different background images from document to document, vary number of pages within the same form, change or create new widgets with or without pre-population with full control over the handwriting properties.
The possibilities are endless!
Better looking strokes
We have put efforts into rendering the strokes in a higher quality based on force and speed. Instead of getting strokes that always have the same thickness you now get a more variable rendering similar to the actual writing on the paper. We call it HD and it's great for signatures!
Have you ever wanted to correct your mistakes? Now you can.
Correction allow users to intuitively correct writing mistakes directly on the paper during the process of writing. Correction can be enabled directly in the DesignTool or programatically in the fully dynamic forms process when printing directly from a backend system.
Roles and admin levels
It is now possible to define roles for different users. A user can be set as Admin, Printer, Designer, Viewer and/or Clerk. It is also possible to create new pen-less users. Pen-less users do not need any user licenses and you can create as many as you want.
Don't want pattern all over the page when you print?
WIth Formidable 2.6 you are able to hide pattern on the page, partial or for the whole page.
Less pattern, faster print speed
You can now configure Formidable for multiple Organisations including assigning administrator rights for the Organisations. The Organisations are separate entities in Formidable and allows for hosting several customers or departments on the same server with full privacy between them.
Formidable 2 is enabled for Barcode reading. In DesignTool it is possible to add a checkbox which puts the pen in a barcode reading mode. The read barcode is exported via the standard XML file.

It is possible, without any programming skills, to extend the PenPusher mobile dialogue with editable fields and file upload directly from the DesignTool. You can now create a validation field for the mobile phone with just a click!
Formidable can now be customised in the Home screen, the Home logo and the Viewer logo. Different organisation can have their own branding on the same server. The Home screen can either be a PNG file or a complete Flash file that allows for almost any functionality in the home screen.
With this release we offer you a really nice Notebook. The Notebook contains basic notebook functionality with its own Viewer where you can view and edit your notebook(s) in an intuitive and paper like way. You can easily brand it with your own cover and you may also print your notebooks in small amounts with your own laser printer.
New GPS tracking functionality is added to PenPusher for J2ME, Blackberry and Windows Mobile. The PenPusher now delivers, if you wish, coordinates every second minute to enable tracking of the users.
The Dashboard contains information about your system. See the latest submits, system load, print volumes and users divided per role etc.
