 One of the ‘features’ of iDocs 6.x was that Global Offset and Form Application X/Y positioning adjustments now are functional. ​ In releases prior to iDocs 5.2 these offsets where ignored. ​ Since they are now functional, any value previously specified will now impact the current mapping alignment. ​ If you are upgrading from iDocs 5.2 or newer, I would not anticipate any issues as these features have been functional since these releases. ​ If you are upgrading from an older version previous to iDocs 5.2 and have values assigned to these functions, then you may need to reset your Global Offset settings and your X/Y positioning adjustments on your Form and Check Applications to realign the data text on the output.  ​ One of the ‘features’ of iDocs 6.x was that Global Offset and Form Application X/Y positioning adjustments now are functional. ​ In releases prior to iDocs 5.2 these offsets where ignored. ​ Since they are now functional, any value previously specified will now impact the current mapping alignment. ​ If you are upgrading from iDocs 5.2 or newer, I would not anticipate any issues as these features have been functional since these releases. ​ If you are upgrading from an older version previous to iDocs 5.2 and have values assigned to these functions, then you may need to reset your Global Offset settings and your X/Y positioning adjustments on your Form and Check Applications to realign the data text on the output.  ​

 Prior to restoring your new iDocs 6.x software, you will need to rename your current library from FMG or current name, to a new name.  For example, most people rename their current FMG library to FMGOLD. ​ If you already have previous library called FMGOLD, maybe from a previous upgrade, you can delete your previous version of FMGOLD and then remain your current library to FMGOLD, or you can give the already existing FMGOLD library a new name, like FMGOLD2, and then continue renaming your current FMG library to FMGOLD. Prior to restoring your new iDocs 6.x software, you will need to rename your current library from FMG or current name, to a new name.  For example, most people rename their current FMG library to FMGOLD. ​ If you already have previous library called FMGOLD, maybe from a previous upgrade, you can delete your previous version of FMGOLD and then remain your current library to FMGOLD, or you can give the already existing FMGOLD library a new name, like FMGOLD2, and then continue renaming your current FMG library to FMGOLD.

 +__In version 6.91 we’ve added an additional parameter option on the COPYDATA command.__ ​ With the recent versions of iDocs we load up a .JAR file which is available for those folks using the Java option with iMail. ​ In order to install the .JAR file in its own separate directory create a directory and use it when prompted for the directory path during the COPYDATA process. ​ If you leave the .JAR file directory path field empty, the .JAR file will be saved to the QIBM directory. ​ If you use WebSphere or similar, we recommend that you use a different directory for our .JAR file as to not interfere with other Java based programs.
