We’re delighted to announce the release of PDFTron’s UWP SDK version 9.2.0, which enhances the Reading Mode experience by adding support for reflowing images, the ability to to add or modify text markups annotations, quick page text selection, plus a few other small feature additions.

Below, we go into detail on key changes in version 9.2.0. To see the complete list, check out our 


Improved Reflow with Images

Reading Mode in UWP has been improved to support reflowing images, so complex content including graphics and figures display to users ergonomically, no matter their selected window size or Windows device screen size. There are different settings to adjust how images should be displayed depending on their state, like background, under text, or over text.

Text Markup Annotations in Reflow Mode

This version brings the ability to add and modify text markup in reading mode (reflow). This way, users can add highlight, underline, or strikeout annotations and delete or modify their style with new colors or/and opacity.

Page Text Selection

Lastly, we added the ability to select the entire page text with a simple click. This boosts productivity when vital information needs to be transferred from one app to another using the clipboard.

We’ve also added:

  • Additional keyboard shortcuts for better browsing of documents and changing pages
  • Pen Stylus that can now select and move annotations
  • A better way of handling modified documents by prompting save dialog on close
  • The ability to easily create new PDF documents from scratch using ViewerControl

Wrap Up

We hope you’re as excited as we are about these new additions! We have many more new features planned in the weeks and months ahead. Please don't hesitate to
