Here’s a short summary of SPRs and enhancements added to the product release. Many SPRs and enhancements are part of the release. We highly recommend you log in to the support site and read the release notes. If you have an active maintenance contract you can download the new version from the PTC-Support website as usual. If you need any help please contact our support team.


The main feature of this release is the work PTC has done on PDF standards. In the PDF print options dialogue you’ll see a few changes:

  • The ‘General’ tab now has a ‘Color Profiles’ area where you can specify the default color profiles to apply to the PDF for different color models.
  • The ‘Linked images’ selector now has a ‘Passthrough’ option which tells APP to pass any linked images directly through to the PDF creation library, effectively maintaining any color profiles applied to that image.
  • There is a new ‘Standards’ tab which features selectors for PDF/X and PDF/A standards. You can select the level of compliance you want to aim for there. You must make sure that all your other settings comply with that standard.
  • Also on the ‘Standards’ tab are options to apply an output intent.
  • You will also notice a ‘Security’ tab in the PDF options. This allows you to set passwords and permissions for your PDF
