Release Notes

Donate to support this project

Here you will find the most recent versions of FoxyPreviewer.
The recommended download will always be a stable version, tested by many users.

To get the most power for your previews, please TRY the most recent versions, that will bring new possibilities, fixes and improvements, but still need some testing. It is important to know how the testing version is running in order to continue developing new possibilities, and improve the product.


Just update the "FoxyPreviewer.App" file.


For a complete update history, please refer to the file UpdateHistory.txt in the "Sources" folder.

v2.99z35 - 2016-06-11
- Fix in the Watermarks engine that was failing when the _PAGETOTAL variable was used.

v2.99z32 - 2016-05-30
- Fix in PR_PDFX, allowing to trap more errors due to a typo. Thanks to Oleg Dimuhametov

v2.99z31 - 2016-04-11
- Fix to allow "Tagged Formatting - <TF>" in Private Data Session forms

v2.99z30 - 2013-09-12
- Fix to ignore empty records in "FoxyPreviewer_Settings.dbf" - THanks to Rahul Moudgill

v2.99z29 - 2013-09-02
- New Property: "lRepeatWhenFree", logical will print a second copy of the report in the 2nd lower part of the same paper sheet. Thanks to Tore Bleken for the suggestion.

v2.99z28 - 2013-09-02
- New tweaks in the property "lRepeatInPage"
IMPORTANT: The page repetition will be applied only if you select a quantity of copies > 1
You can leave the property "lRepeatInPage = .T." all the time on, to make FoxyPreviewer to print your report twice in the same page if the user wants more than one copy and if the report does not occupy more than half the page. This is a cool feature, allowing your users to save paper sheets!
If the report contains more than one page, even if the contents do not use more than half the page, this property will not be considered. If you select "nCopies = 3" and "lRepeatInPage = .T.", having the needed space in the sheet of paper, FoxyPreviewer will print the report twice in the 1st paper, and another single time in the next sheet. This feature works only when you click the "Print" button from the "PrintPreview" toolbar.

Excelente herramienta, muchas gracias. Aprovecho para explicar el siguiente detalle, en la versión z26 al mover el spin para indicar 2 o mas copias, al momento de mandarlo imprimir las hojas salen cortadas, les falta un pedazo.

Gracias!! Edwin65. Las columnas en mi reporte se desplazan con respecto a los titulos cuando se guarda a EXCEL nose si es problema mio o es posible corregirlo, otro requerimiento es poder ver el reporte en 120% de 100 pasa a 150 y lo ideal es un intermedio muchas gracias por tu tiempo
by jaimemarston on Jan 23, 2013 at 8:28 PM
Jaime, el inconveniente que tienes con el listener de XLS, se corrige centrando los titulos con las columnas de datos, tambien existe la posibilidad de darle manualmente la posicion que le corresponde, tanto al titulo como a la columna de datos, puedes enviarme un correo a y te envio ejemplos.

Al exportar a PDF, la marca de agua no respeta el parámetro de transparencia, por lo que me muestra el gráfico original. Sin embargo, en pantalla e impresora funciona correctamente.
by elhabraque on Nov 29, 2012 at 1:42 PM
saludos, tengo problema con la marca de agua, en la vista previa e impresión no hay problema se ve perfecto pero cuando hago directo el PDF ahí no aparece la marca de agua, alguien sabe algo al respecto se los agradecería mucho.
