With DM Stack 1502 it became possible to render iXBRL reports with pages like the original Word document.
With DM Stack 1600 additionally page numbers and hyperlinks are supported. Images of type SVG (vector graphics) are automatically exchanged by images in PNG format as vector graphics are not allowed to be used in iXBRL filings.

The Transformation Rules Registry defines how strings that appear in Inline XBRL documents are converted to the formats required by the data types of concepts in an XBRL documents.
The XBRL Mapper has a new tab 'Format' where such kind of formats can be applied to any mapping.
