ReplaceMagic - new version (4.6.2) just published

New in version 4.6.2

  • Every control with folders treeview extended to include button to select "Extended network drives" which will give more flexibility when selecting folder location
  • Parameter "Wait XXX seconds on threads to finish" will be used to when finishing document processing to set timeout how long ReplaceMagic will wait to show dashboards and processing results. In case that some documents are still not fully processed they will be reported under AdditionalInformation tab with message "Processing timeout reached...". Those documents can be imported directly from AdditionalInfo tab for separate processing. Default value is 300 seconds.
  • Button to filter extensions for processing renamed from "..." to "Docs filter"
  • Improved messages during processing finalization phase to be more descriptive
  • Included Toggle All button when selecting which Document Properties should be included in search&replace
  • Changed that when user goes directly to Search&Replace (instead of first doing Scan Documents) ReplaceMagic is doing Ultra fast scan and then Search&Replace. This will accelerate direct replacement process.
  • Added tooltips to some controls in Scan Documents tab
  • Extended result grids to support direct document opening when user does double-click on some file in result grids
  • Added feature "Active Documents" which will tell you which exactly documents are currently processed. This works for scan and replacement process.
















  • In case that you want to stop processing of some document just do double click on filename in Active Documents form
  • Added parameter "Maximum document processing time" with default value of 180 seconds. If ReplaceMagic does not have enough free processes to run scan or replacement process all documents that are opened longer than timeout value will be stopped and reported in Additional Info tab.







  • Added question "Are you sure that you want to start replacement?" before you set ReplaceMagic to execute replacement process. This warning can be switched-off by selecting parameter "Suppress Warnings" in Configuration.
  • When replacement process is running you will see process mode (Preview or Execute mode)









  • Changed parameter "% of memory used by ReplaceMagic" to check total available memory instead memory used by ReplaceMagic. New parameter name "% of memory used when running ReplaceMagic". In case that you set this parameter to 90 and total used memory is above that value ReplaceMagic will not open new documents until memory is not below this parameter. Memory reduction can happen if document processing is done and memory is released or "Maximum document processing time" parameter value is reached and ReplaceMagic stops processing affected document(s)







  • Minor bugs fixing

What is new in version 4.5.8:

ReplaceMagic - new version (4.5.7) just published

New in version 4.5.7 (10-03-2018)

  • Extended log file to include processed file size also
  • Changed that ReplaceMagic is started in normal size and not maximized like before
  • Included in Configuration information how many logical processors your computer has
  • Maximum number of parallel documents set to 100 (which is anyway too big for 99% of current computers)
  • During scan of documents ReplaceMagic is going through selected locations (you will see Read Folders in progress bar). Now you can set over Configuration after how many scanned documents you would like to see update in the progress bar. Recommendation is 1000 or in case of bigger location (according to number of documents stored there) at least 5000 or maybe every 10000
  • Extended ReplaceMagic to remember previously selected document extensions for processing. This means when you close ReplaceMagic next time when you start it, it will have pre-selected all extensions used last time
  • Instead of showing only if HTTP(s) links are broken or not, ReplaceMagic will now show also returned status code and descriptive name. More infos about status codes: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.net.httpstatuscode?redirectedfrom=MSDN&view=netframework-4.7.2

  • Enabled TLS 1.2 as after 10/31/2018 SharePoint.Online will support only TLS 1.2 (more info: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4057306/preparing-for-tls-1-2-in-office-365)

Preparing for the mandatory use of TLS 1.2 in Office 365

Hi all,

in case that you are not aware but if you use Office 365 (SharePoint.Online) and you are still with old TLS 1.0 or TLS 1.1 keep in mind that after 31st of October, 2018 Microsoft will remove support to them and enable only TLS 1.2.

More infos can be found over: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4057306/preparing-for-tls-1-2-in-office-365

Now good news - from ReplaceMagic ver. 4.5.7 (we plan to release it on 3rd of October, 2018) we are going to support TLS 1.2 so ReplaceMagic will not be affected by this change.

Of course, reason is that Microsoft, with right, is planning to increase security of communication.

Stay tuned until ReplaceMagic ver. 4.5.7.

ReplaceMagic - new version (4.5.6) just published

New in version 4.5.6 (09-15-2018)

  • SharePoint support extended:
  • All SharePoint Libraries? - (BETA version) by setting this option ReplaceMagic will access and scan all locations at SharePoint. As this is risky operation because you might change some of system files be extremely careful. Remark: if SharePoint is blocking changes of some of files ReplaceMagic cannot go around that limitations. This is mostly on SharePoint.Online side but might happen also with on-premise version 
  • SharePoint Content Approval - ReplaceMagic supports also Content Approval settings. In case if your SharePoint document library has option "Require content approval for submitted items?" configured ReplaceMagic will keep document approval status. Due to SharePoint API limitations we cannot keep in that case "Do not change "Last modified date" and "Editor" data
  • SharePoint Versioning - ReplaceMagic allows you to control versioning of documents stored on SharePoint from ReplaceMagic. If this option is selected depending on SharePoint configuration ("Create a version each time you edit a file in this document library?") ReplaceMagic will set selected version. Options are that we create Major, Minor or overwrite existing version
  • Improved processing of documents stored in SharePoint
  • Improved messages during checks of broken links. Message "Timeout reached" replaced with "Most likely broken link or server down => No response from the server received!"
  • Improved error handling during SharePoint processing
  • Improved processing of password protected documents. If ReplaceMagic does not have values for password (nothing entered in password fields) password protected documents will be skipped (with notification) without ReplaceMagic trying to open them. This might bring some performance improvements
  • Extended content of Additional Info tab - in case that setting to skip documents bigger than some size is enabled now in list of skipped documents ReplaceMagic will also show document size
  • Extended extension selection form to support multiselect (possibilities: Shift + Range or Ctrl + Single clicks on extensions). Previously only one by one extensions could be selected
  • Extended configuration to show how many documents in parallel should be processed based on number of logical processors. This is just indicator as this number might bi higher or lower
  • Reduced default parallelization to 5 (from 10)
  • Extended each form that click on Escape will close the form
  • Changed Register form to allow that new license is entered. This is important in case of activation of extended maintenance. Now just click on register and enter new license to activate it
  • About form changed to show how long free maintenance (free upgrades) is still valid. Before only purchase date was shown
  • Improved error handling & notification
  • Extended configuration with option to set time format for processing time shown in dashboards after scan of documents or after replacement process. Options are seconds, minutes or hours
  • Changed export in Scan Documents tab to enable only acceptable options based on selected export file format. For example, export to CSV supports only "Make export for "Import files" (only CSV export)". Other files formats (Excel, PDF, HTML) support other export methods
  • Minor bug fixing
  • ReplaceMagic will keep history of last 10 SharePoint logon connection details per Windows named user:
  • ...
  • ...
 

 

 

 

ReplaceMagic - new version (4.5.5) just published

New in version 4.5.5 (07-09-2018)

  • Parallel document processing parameter which defines number of documents that ReplaceMagic can process in parallel can now be changed also during the processing (scanning or replacement process). To do that, during processing, just go to Configuration and set and save new value which will be used few moments after change is saved.
  • Max memory used by ReplaceMagic can also be changed during processing (scanning or replacement process). To change value during processing just go to configuration and set new value which will be used immediatelly after you save configuration.
  • Parameter "Skip files bigger than ... Mbytes" can we also dynamically changed during processing similar to "Max memory used by ReplaceMagic" and "Parallel document processing"
  • Added parameter "Re-read configuration after XXX documents" which is controlling if configuration file should be red during documents processing. Currently, ReplaceMagic works in a way that it will read configuration file when you start ReplaceMagic. With this change you can change configuration during processing and after defined number of documents ReplaceMagic will re-read configuration file and pickup new values. For this to work during processing parameter has to be enabled before you start with processing.
  • Added option to enable ReplaceMagic to show Windows Shortcut document properties in Hyperlinks tab.
    Following properties will be shown (only if they have some value): Arguments, Description, Hotkey, IconLocation, TargetPath and WorkingDirectory
  • Fix bug that Windows Shortcut counters were not part of Scanning Dashnoard (Document Types and Document Size in bytes)

 

 

ReplaceMagic - new version (4.5.4) just published
