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)

New effects

Use new effects on objects that thanks to the native transparency support of PDF/X-4 and PDF/X-5 can be output perfectly. These include “Inner Shadow”, “Inner and Outer Glow”, “Color Overlay” and the novel “reflection effect”. With the “Preflight” option, you can also still check your document for effects.

New Backup Technology (10.0)

No program and no computer works without errors. Errors are annoying if, for example, files are stored on defective sectors of the data carrier. In such cases, the documents are often irretrievably defective because no software can prevent this problem. With VivaDesigner 10’s new backup technology, you can work around this problem by accessing older versions of the same document at any time, even if they were edited months ago.
