We’re excited to announce the release of version 9.1.0 of our Android PDF SDK introducing three powerful new capabilities bound to help your Android users be more productive and do more with their documents. These include:
- Custom styles in free text annotations
- Annotation in reading mode
- Search in the navigation list
This post covers the most significant 9.1.0 changes. Head over to the changelog for the full list of fixes and enhancements!
Custom Styles in Freetext Annotations
With this release, users can now define custom fonts they wish to use for free text annotation through two newly added APIs:
As a result, it’s now possible to style a free text annotation with custom font, stroke, and fill, allowing users to create more beautiful free text annotations with ease.
Text Markup Annotations in Reading Mode
Next, version 9.1.0 also brings support for adding and modifying the text markup in reading mode. After making a text selection in reading mode, the user can add a highlight, underline, strikeout or squiggly annotation, and modify the styles such as color and opacity, or delete them through the bottom style dialog.
Search in the Navigation Lists
When working with large files with a high number of annotations, bookmarks, and outlines, it can be very helpful to be able to search among them. With this update, it’s now possible to search among annotations, bookmarks, and outlines through the top toolbar.
