linkApple PencilKit Beta Support

We're pleased to announce beta support for Apple's PencilKit framework!

PencilKit provides a drawing environment for your iOS app that takes input from Apple Pencil, or the user's finger, and turns it into high quality images.

The PTPencilDrawingCreate tool allows users to draw and edit expressive and responsive ink, marker, and pencil annotations.

linkMultiple Annotation Selection and Grouping

PDFTron for iOS now supports multiple annotation selection using the new PTAnnotSelectTool class.

Selected annotations can be grouped, ungrouped, moved, resized, and deleted together.

The PTThumbnailsViewController now includes controls to rotate selected pages, as well as insert new blank pages at the end of the document, or after the currently-selected page.

These features are in addition to the existing controls to delete and reorder pages.
