Version 4.26

PDF free text search, new permissions, optimized upload dialog

Add-On Collaboration & Annotations

Back to top
  • PDF free text search: Within open PDFs, you can now search for terms which are then highlighted within the PDF (as search results). The PDFTron WebViewer is used for this.


Back to top
  • In the large view, files can be removed from the lightbox (“- Remove from lightbox”).
  • In the large view, the sorting function is now effective (e.g. ID descending or ascending, upload date descending or ascending, etc.).


Back to top
  • The administration area now shows the creation date and the modification date of a publication.
  • Changes to publication templates can now be updated for existing publications (“Apply template again”).


Back to top
  • Permissions: In the administration area, categories can now be edited by right-clicking (edit, re-sort, sort contents, move, add, delete, edit permissions). The link “Edit permissions” leads directly to Administration > Permissions for selected category.
  • Upload dialog: From now on you can create new categories (right click + “Add”), edit (right click + “Edit”), sort the content (right click + “Sort content”), re-sort the category (right click + “Re-sort”), move the category (right click + “Move”) and delete the category (right click + “Delete”).

Upload dialog

Back to top
  • In the Upload Dialog, it is now possible to create a new category at the same time, in which new files can be uploaded (see Categories > Upload Dialog).
  • If the Upload dialog is closed during an active upload process, a message “The upload process is not yet completely finished. Do you really want to cancel? [ Yes ] [ No ]”. This prevents the upload process from being accidentally aborted by closing the upload dialog.

Upload file folder via Drag&Drop

Back to top
  • Folders can be dragged and dropped into the browser window to import the contained files individually or the entire folder structure into Manja. Folders are automatically imported into Manja as categories.

File detail view

Back to top
  • For shortcuts to other files, the direct shortcuts are now at the top of the list.

File Comparison

Back to top
  • In the comparison function of files, it is now possible to delete one of the files directly in this view (Improved workflow for cleaning/sorting of identical files).


Back to top
  • When downloading a file in the “Original” template, the rotation previously set by the user is now applied during download.

Print View

Back to top
  • In the print preview, the same view configuration is used as in the result list.


Back to top
  • Newly implemented is the function “Stay logged in” in the login screen.
  • For administrators the function “Log in as” has been extended. Visually there is now a clear marking (red frame) if the administrator has logged in with another user. Additionally there is a new function “back to login as” which allows administrators to switch back to their admin login and log out of the other user.
  • An expired login session now displays a more meaningful message: “Authentication required”, “Session expired”, “Please log in again”, “Higher permissions required” or “Function not available”.

Multi-level authentication for administrative tasks

Back to top
  • For the areas “Administration”, “Maintenance” and “My Account” there is now a multi-level authentication when entering the areas:
    – Mode A: further input of the password.
    – Mode B: confirmation by click without password.
    – Mode C: the user does not have to take any action, but the access to the area is logged.
    – Mode D: the multi-level authentication is deactivated.

The default setting is mode C. If the set mode needs to be changed, please contact us and we will make the change.

For developers and integrators

Back to top
  • Syntax highlighting for Manja HTML templates integrated.

Maintenance and support

Back to top
  • New function: “Log on with unlimited permissions”.
  • In the Console under the item “Maintenance” the explanation text for the parameters was supplemented with examples.
  • A script was implemented which can reset the superadmin user (if necessary) and thus e.g. reset the password or create a new account.
