Version Changelog (April 30th, 2019)

  • Version:
  • Release Date: April 30th, 2019
  • Built with Xcode 10.1 (10B61)


  • The PTPDFViewCtrl and PTDocumentViewController classes are now able to convert Office and image on-the-fly. Pages in the document are rendered as soon as they are converted, as opposed to waiting for the entire document to be converted before seeing any content. For the PTDocumentViewController class, streaming-conversion is used when opening any compatible file with the openDocumentWithURL: method. To open a file with the PTPDFViewCtrl class, the openUniversalDocumentWithConversion: method is used as follows:

    // Open a .docx file.
    let conversion: PTDocumentConversion = PTConvert.streamingPDFConversion(docxFilePath, options: nil)
    pdfViewCtrl.openUniversalDocument(with: conversion)
  • This release adds an image stamper tool, PTImageStampCreate, to add images to a document. The tool allows the user to select an image from the device's photo library and add the image as an annotation.

  • This release also introduces end-point snapping for the measurement tools, PTRulerCreate, PTPerimeterCreate, and PTAreaCreate. For more information, please see the measurement tools guide .

  • It is now possible to override localized string definitions in the Tools.framework bundle by adding a PTLocaliable.strings file to the main (app) bundle. When this file is present it will be used to search for string definitions before the Tools-internal is used. This allows for new language translations to be added without needing to recompile the Tools framework. Please see our localization guide for more information.

  • This release adds the following Showcase samples:

    • Measurement tools
    • File comparison
    • Annotation extraction
    • Form extraction
    • Image stamping
  • The scroll direction of the PTReflowViewController class can now be controlled via its scrollDirection property. This defaults to horizontal scrolling/paging, but can be changed to allow scrolling vertically to change pages.

Bug fixes

  • A number of miscellaneous bug fixes.
