For the tenth version of MarkMagic, the CYBRA team has decided to split the versions into two products, MarkMagic X for IBMi and MarkMagic X for Any Platform.
Enhancements for All MarkMagic Users
SQL Support – Create labels and forms, combining data from multiple sources – in the same document. In addition to their DB2 data, IBM i users can mix and match data from MySQL, SQL Server, and Oracle data sources. MarkMagic PI Users can mix and match MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle and H2 data sources. Previously, combining data from different sources required special programming. Now it can be done with no programming, using a simple user interface.
PDF Merging – You can now insert PDF documents into MarkMagic formats. The information contained on the PDF document can be positioned anywhere on a MarkMagic format. The PDF document can be one produced by any application.
Advanced Graphic Conversion Options – MarkMagic now provides graphic conversion options for cropping and removing white space. When you convert a source graphic you can now optionally choose just part of the Source Image area.
Store/Reuse Text Block – You can now reuse the same Text Block in multiple formats. In MarkMagic X Text Blocks are stored in a user library.
Long *HEADING Text and Data Fields – Maximum Field Length has been increased to 350 characters.
Long HP PCL5 Laser Fields – Maximum Field Length has been increased to 350 characters on HP PCL5 formats.
Enhancements for IBM i Users
New Search Capabilities – Before modifying a format, you can now determine which formats will be affected by the change.
Enhanced History Logging – New feature lets you determine which fields in a format were modified, when a field was modified, what was modified, and by whom. In addition, you can find out which format was printed, when it was printed, and by which user, sorted by date or by number of times printed.
PrintMonitor Trigger Update– In addition to watching an existing OS/400 spooled output file, or DB2/400 physical or logical file for new records, PrintMonitor now can monitor a folder on the IFS and trigger a print job when it detects a newly added file. This is done by using the new PrintMonitor *DIR parameter.
Enhancements for PI Users
New MarkMagic PI Fusion Edition with Centralized Database – MarkMagic Fusion was developed for customers requiring centralized control and standardization of their formats, rules and graphics. Fusion consists of a single MarkMagic PI Fusion Server that stores all formats, rules and graphics. MarkMagic PI Fusion Run Times installed on other servers print by accessing the standardized formats, rules, and graphics on the Fusion Server. Using MarkMagic Fusion does away with the need to export from development and import to production formats each and every time there is a change. Customers with multiple MM PI copies that need to be kept in sync will appreciate this new feature. MarkMagic Fusion is a separately priced edition.
Encrypted Printing – The new MarkMagic PI Print REST API lets you put data in the body of a POST request. Print data can be encrypted with the print request to make it easier to transfer data across systems and for enhanced security.
The latest version is MarkMagic X Mod 200831 for IBM System i and Platform Independent Users. MarkMagic 6.5 & above supports IBM OS V6R1 – V7R2 (OS V7R3 and above require MarkMagic 9 or higher.
