Version 6.0.0 Changelog (June 25, 2013)


This release of PDFNet for Android brings the core PDF functionality in line with version 6.0.0 of the desktop SDKs. More information can be found on the what's new page,


  • Fonts, CMaps, and standard PDF resources were separated from the libraries into a file (pdfnet.res) that can be shared among multiple .so libs.
  • Added new overloaded variants of PDFNet.initialize() that accept an int argument to be used with the resources file.
  • Added PDFViewCtrl.smartZoom(), which attemps to zoom to an intersecting paragraph.
  • Added a "Bookmarks" widget to the sample app PDFViewCtrlDemo, so users can navigate the document using the bookmarks dialog and also check the source code on how to interact with bookmarks.

TOOLS (Tools.jar)

  • The code has been reviewed to avoid Lint warnings, and some deprecated APIs calls were changed to use newer Android API.
  • Now the Tool class ( overrides the onDoubleTap() event (this overrides the default double tap behavior of PDFViewCtrl) and attempts to perform a smart zoom before a normal zoom.
  • New AnnotEditLine tool, which is now used to edit lines and arrows. This new tool uses only two dots to control the line, being possible to move the control points freely.


  • Improved hit testing for annotations (ie, tapping the middle of an empty square will not select it, while tapping the square itself will).
  • Some types used in DocumentDownloadListener were renamed for better understanding or removed:
    • DOWNLOAD_STARTED was removed.
  • Some methods were deprecated and replaced:
    • PDFViewCtrl.lockReadDoc() was replaced by docLockRead();
    • PDFViewCtrl.tryLockReadDoc() was replaced by docTryLockRead();
    • PDFViewCtrl.unlockReadDoc() was replaced by docUnlockRead();
    • PDFViewCtrl.lockDoc() was replaced by docLock();
    • PDFViewCtrl.tryLockDoc() was replaced by docTryLock();
    • PDFViewCtrl.unlockDoc() was replaced by docUnlock().


  • Fixed a bug with the DialogColorPicker for not showing all the colors in the dialog (Tools.jar).
