When a new PDF Profile was created in DocConverter Configuration Manager, the default settings were not the same as the default API settings.

The default settings for the PDF Profile were updated to match the default API settings, and this resolved the issue.


When PDF files with images were converted to HTML, the graphics were not linked correctly, and did not display.

After PDF to HTML conversions, graphics are now placed in one folder and correctly linked, which resolves this issue.


JTD files (LibreOffice) with Japanese characters did not convert to PDF successfully.

When converting JTD files that include Japanese characters, install the Ichitaro plugin for LibreOffice.

1. Download the Ichitaro plug in from:

2. Open LibreOffice, and go to Tools > Extension Manager. 3. In the Extension Manager, click Add and browse to the downloaded Ichitaro plugin.

The plugin installs as the Ichitaro import filter.
