Below you will find some Registry Tweaks and functions to change the some default functions/behavior of the Aloaha PDF Saver. Please note that these tweaks are also valid for the Aloaha PDF Signator.
Define textcolor of new textboxes
When a new textbox is being created the textcolor is black. That can be changed with HKLM\Software\Aloaha\pdfsaver\FFColor.
The value of FFColor must be a hex value ranging from 0 to FFFFFF.
Enable/disable Textbox Edit
If set HKLM\Software\Aloaha\PDFSaver\edit to 1 you can edit textbox properties with just a double click on the textbox. The value of this property can also be read with the function is_edit. To set this value programmatically you can use the function allow_edit.
Enable/disable Selection Box
It is possible to draw a box with two clicks on the left mouse button. Sometimes it is whished that this feature is disable. To disable this feature please set the registry key HKLM\Software\Aloaha\PDFSaver\disable_box to 1. This value can also be toggled with the function selectionbox and read with the function with_box.
Enable/disable Textfield Borders
Per default Aloaha renders borders around textboxes to make sure the user finds them right away. These borders can be enabled/disabled via the registry key HKL\Software\Aloaha\PDFSaver\disable_border. With the function enable_borders you can set this value and with the function with_borders the current value can be read.
Ignore non existing PDF Form Fields during XML Import
The key Ignore_Missing_Fields in HKLM\Software\Aloaha\PDFSaver instructs Aloaha to ignore XML Data which does not match to any form field inside the PDF Form. In some cases it might be important that Aloaha stops an import in case the XML does not match to the PDF. In theses cases please toggle the registry key to 0.
