Thanks for this update and for continuously supporting freewrap! It is still my favourite wrapping tool on Windows.

Hi Dennis,

I hope you will read this. I have update my app to freewrap 6.75 now and the new zvfs system gave me some trouble. I think, the freewrap documentation is not always clear enough and I ended up with doing things wrongly. Further, there are some real errors in the documentation about the wrapping and the usage of zvfs that led me in the wrong direction in the first place.

I have made a few suggestions in the PDF documentation of freewrap to make things clearer and correct the (typing?) errors. If you like to include these in the next version, I am happy to share it with you. I could send the PDF but do not have a contact email address.

Cheers, Torsten

I have set up a temporary page, on the freeWrap web site, which will accept uploads of PDF files smaller than 1 MB. Please go to to upload your annotated freeWrap documentation file.
