ReplaceMagic - new version (4.5.8) just published

What is new in version 4.5.8:

  • Improved system messages
  • Fixed issue that ReplaceMagic is not making replacements if parameter "Skip files bigger than" is set to 0

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 
  • Additional error description will be shown during SharePoint connection (only if option Suppress Warnings is not set). If Suppress Warnings is set message box will not appear, you will only see "No connection, please check logon data!" message
  • 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

  • Added that scan or replacement dashboards can be re-opened once you close them
  • Added direct export file link to all export forms. You can now open export file directly from ReplaceMagic

ReplaceMagic - new version (4.5.3) just published

SharePoint journey continues - we just added beta support for native integration with SharePoint 2010.

Now you can connect directly with SharePoint 2010/2013/2016 and SharePoint Online. Of course, we can keep document properties like last accessed/modified date, author and editor plus we can check-in/check-out and force check-in of your documents.

ReplaceMagic - new version (4.5.2) just published

  • Improved processing of PDF documents stored in SharePoint

 

 

ReplaceMagic - new version (4.5.1) just published

What is new:

  • New notification => if you select to make changes in SharePoint (access of HTTP(s)) and select that ReplaceMagic creates backup you will get notification that SharePoint backups are controlled of versioning settings of SharePoint
  • ReplaceMagicUpdater.exe is not also digitally signed

ReplaceMagic - new version (4.5.0) just published

What is new:

  • From now ReplaceMagic supports native integration with SharePoint. This means that from ReplaceMagic you can login to your SharePoint site and process documents directly.
  • Advantages are that ReplaceMagic can keep last modification date but also author and editor user data
  • In addition ReplaceMagic can check-out / check-in documents directly on SharePoint but also it can forcefully check-in documents checked-out by other users
  • As SharePoint has limitation of number of items that you can retrieve from SharePoint list (usually 5000) ReplaceMagic provides support to go around that limitation. In case that you have document libraries with more than 5000 (or your configured value) library items we can read them all
  • SharePoint (on-premise or online) is controlling actions executed on SharePoint, basically, SharePoint platform is protecting itself. To avoid that ReplaceMagic is creating huge workload on SharePoint (which will be blocked by SharePoint) you can use document processing parallelization parameter which can be found over Configuration => Configuration => "Parallel document processing"
  • Beside extension for SharePoint we included also:
  • In case of Powerpoint document processing ReplaceMagic will tell you on which slide we found some hyperlink(s)
  • Improved setting of custom extensions
  • Added Commands replacement under Link Sources
  • Improved resizing of result grids
  • Minor bug fixing
