Extended Image Search

Updating missing images can be very time-consuming if these images are to be found in different folders. With the extended image search, you define just ONE search path, which finds all missing images and updates them automatically.

Deactivate System Fonts

VivaDesigner enables fonts to be embedded in the document. In VivaDesigner 8, all the system fonts can also be deactivated. In this way you can ensure that the user can only use the fonts that are embedded in the document.

Table Style Sheets

With style sheets for tables, you can define the graphic appearance of a table as well as single columns, rows, cells and separator lines with a keystroke. At the same time you can define header and footer rows as well as alternating rows and columns. Table cells can contain text, images, graphic objects or additional tables.


With notes you can store non-printable information and tips for other users in text and objects. As with change tracking, this option is suited for users who work in a team, or for users who only want to create a report protocol of their work.

Line Numbering

With the Line Counter you activate a non-printable numbering of the text lines for a better text control. The color, font, size and position (left or right) can be determined, as well as the range (e.g. leave every second line blank) and the restart (text column, new chapter, etc)

09: Improved path options

With the improved path tool you already create line and curve segments while drawing. Paths may also be closed or opened afterwards, and the beginning of a path can be recognized immediately due to a new special selection handle. Furthermore, new anchor or control handles can be inserted in any position of a line or curve segment.

10: New Options for editing paths (10.0)

The editing of paths has been completely redeveloped and greatly expanded. For this purpose a new tool and a new palette have been created with which you can convert, delete or add new sizing and control points. Multiple sizing points can be simultaneously selected, aligned, distributed, moved interactively or positioned precisely using dimension specifications.

10: Interactive scaling

Up to now, groups could be scaled using the dialog. With Version 9, not only groups but also all selected objects without any grouping can be scaled interactively, both freely and proportionally (A). A new sizing handle (B) helps you with interactive proportional scaling. Use an additional key or this new sizing handle to scale not only the object shape but also content such as images or text.
