We are happy to announce version 6.10.1 of PDFTron's iOS SDK. This release adds redaction capabilities, form field navigation buttons, and new features for architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) applications including a file comparison UI control, as well as ruler, perimeter, and area annotation tools.
We are pleased to introduce support for redaction with this release. The new
PTTextRedactionCreate tools allow users to easily select text or a rectangular
region of the document and then permanently redact the contents of that selection.
Please see our redaction tool guide for more information.
PDF measurement tools
There are new tools to create distance, perimeter, and area measurement annotations:
These allow the user
to create measurement annotations and define a translation scale from document
space to world space with a variety of different units. This is especially useful
when working with architectural drawings for example.
Please see our measurement tool guide for more information.
File comparison control
This release includes a new
PTDiffViewController class to
compare two files and create a new file displaying the visual difference
Please see our file comparison guide for more information.
File attachment annotations
This release introduces support for creating and opening file attachment
annotations. The new
tool handles creation of file attachment annotations, while a
handles existing file attachments in documents.
Form field navigation
It is now possible to cycle forwards and backwards through form text fields
on a page. The
provides an option to display buttons above the keyboard when filling in forms
to allow the user to quickly navigate between each text field.
Please see our change log for a list of all changes.
