Installing MAPublisher 9.8 on Both Adobe Illustrator CC 2015 and CC 2015.3 Simultaneously (32-bit, Windows only)

During development, Adobe did not change the class identification (CLSID) key for Illustrator CC 2015.3 (32-bit) and therefore it remained the same as CC 2015 (32-bit). These CLSID keys are (usually) unique and MAPublisher uses them to detect which versions of Adobe Illustrator are installed on a machine. However, due to these two versions having identical CLSIDs, MAPublisher 9.8 will only detect one version of Adobe Illustrator if both CC 2015 and CC 2015.3 are installed on the same machine.

PDF Maps Auto-detect Resolution When Importing Custom Maps

PDF Maps for Android now allows you to customize the resolution of custom maps added to your Map List. This is useful in instances where you want maps to be processed in high resolution to allow for more detail. By going to Settings > General Settings and scrolling to the Import Settings, you can have maps process at 72, 150 or 300 dpi. Depending on your usage, a higher resolution may not always be best, as larger maps can take longer to process and require more storage space.

Force Multiple Line Labels By Adjusting Text Attributes In MAPublisher

Single line label vs. multi-line label

There may be times when you want to have labels be multiple lines. Multi-line labels allow them to fit in tighter positions on the map. Currently, in MAPublisher LabelPro there's a rule to allow stacking up to 2, 3 or even 4 lines. However, this rule only "allows" stacking and doesn't "force" stacking. It is only meant to fit labels when there isn't enough space for a single line.

How Come I See A Windows SmartScreen When Launching MAPublisher Installer?

Some users may see a Windows SmartScreen warning when launching the MAPublisher installer downloaded from our website. This is due to a new and more secure certificate used by Microsoft to sign the MAPublisher app. The warning can be ignored and any future warnings should not appear as the certificate and the app gain reputation according to Microsoft, however, it may be seen for the next little while.

To continue to install MAPublisher, click More info then click Run anyway.
