In order to preserve the PDF/A output, after updating to version 22.0.3, existing scan actions from previous PaperCut MF versions that have any of the aforementioned doc proc features will now have the PDF/A box ticked.

On newer devices using the WebKit browser, a two minute timeout is enacted while the on screen keyboard is raised so that users are not logged out while typing. On older devices using the NetFront browser, the timeout is effectively disabled while the on screen keyboard is raised. Regular timeout is reinstated when the on screen keyboard is lowered.
