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.


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.

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.

Native PDF Import (PDF to Layout) (10.0)

Of course you can place a PDF in a picture object in VivaDesigner 10. But with the new, unique, native PDF import, you can create a layout document from any PDF that you can edit at will. This allows you to import documents quickly and easily from layout and illustration programs such as Freehand, PageMaker, QuarkXPress, Corel, Illustrator, FrameMaker or Office programs such as Word, Excel or PowerPoint. Awaken your archive to new life!

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.
