- Complete 32-bit application.
- Migrates all Microsoft Access databases to SQL Server or
ODBC-compliant database for better scalability.
- Sizable windows with position recall. In other words, you size and place
the image window wherever you want it, separately from the other windows.
This also helps Associated Document support as you can have the Word doc or
whatever, beside your Search or Index screens.
- The small-footprint halFILE Manager displays the halFILE menus and launch
programs as needed. Also the menu was enhanced to remove the little-used
Quick Copy and added icons for Import, Basket Status, Key Verify and Exit.
- Multiple-monitor support. For example, you can configure the system to
place the image window on a dedicated monitor.
- Better on-line help files using html help. Also Help menu option to go to
halfile.com where there is now a growing database of Tech Support issues and
Network Integrated security option. The halFILE user id is derived from the
Network Login. So, the user does not have to re-login to halFILE every time
they go into the application.
SQL Server Integrated security option. The SQL Server user id is derived
from the Network Login.
More user security options including rights for deleting documents and
modifying and annotating images.
Unlike prior versions, the printer for image printing can be changed at any
time (because we are using the Imaging for Windows printer driver). See
Windows XP Note below.
Image Annotations. You can annotate halFILE images with a variety of
objects including highlighter, text, notes, and stamps.
Color image support.
TWAIN scanner driver support which includes scan and FTP and scan and
e-mail comment line options.
Both Kofax and TWAIN scanner interfaces now support inverting the image to
reverse black and white.
Improved printer driver for faster, more reliable printing. We now use the
Imaging for Windows printer driver instead of the Kofax printer driver. **
Since Windows XP does not include Imaging for
Windows components, you must either purchase and install Imaging
Professional for Windows or use the hal Systems-supplied Kofax-based image
Index menu selection option that can integrate Index with an e.halFILE
search. You can also use this menu to run external programs.
With Imaging for Windows
Professional Edition, halFILE provides seamless "real-time" Optical
Character Recognition (OCR). This feature lets you draw a box around an area
of the image, press a key sequence and the program converts that portion of
the image to text and fills in the current index field.
- Color Coded hit list lines based on some designated value. For example, Plat
Maps could appear in blue on the hit list.
The Import feature will now split multi-page TIFF images automatically.
Single install reduces the time to bring up new client workstations. This
installs the SQL Server driver, Print to halFILE feature, Send to halFILE
feature and halFILE Mail client in one install.
ODBC File Data Source support for easier client installation since data
source setup is not required on each station. When setting up a new
database, you build a File Data Source one time. For new stations, new ODBC
setup is required.
New Auto Archive feature that bypasses the CD Stage Area procedure
completely, yet still manages the image drive so CDs could still be made for
backup if desired. This feature will also save the database information
