Version Changelog (November 5th, 2018)

  • Version:
  • Release Date: November 5th, 2018
  • Built with Xcode 10.0 (10A254a)


  • Adds a reflow control, which converts the displayed PDF to HTML text suitable for viewing on a small device. The original PDF font and text styling (relative font sizes, bolding, etc.) is preserved, and text annotations (highlights, underlines, etc.) are visible.
  • File coordination is now supported by the drop-in complete reader components, PTDocumentViewController and PTTabbedDocumentViewController via the new class PTCoordinatedDocument. See the file coordination guide for more information and example usage, as well as the Complete Reader sample project.
  • The Complete Reader sample project now uses Apple's UIDocumentBrowserViewController file picker on iOS 11+. This gives users access to other apps' files, as well as iCloud and (if installed) other cloud provider files (such as Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.)
  • The Complete Reader sample project is now available in both Swift and Objective-C.
  • The drop-in complete reader components PTDocumentViewController and PTTabbedDocumentViewController now support opening and streaming documents from online (http) URLs. See the Open from online URL guide for more information.
  • Opening documents from online URLs will now optionally only download content which the viewer is displaying. This will result in data transfer savings when viewing documents over a cellular/mobile connection. See the guide and options available on openUrlAsync(_ url:, withPDFPassword:, withCacheFile:, withOptions).
  • The ToolManager includes annotation related notifications, as well as a readonly flag to quickly disable annotation creation and editing.
  • The PTTabbedDocumentViewController now provides improved access to PTDocumentViewController APIs for better control over its behaviour.

Bug fixes

  • Miscellaneous bug fixes, including:
    • A fix for find text highlight positioning when zoomed in.
    • A fix for where repeated rapid zooming could result in a small version of the page in the upper left hand corner of the page.
    • A fix for where the PTTabbedDocumentViewController tab bar could sometimes appear disconnected from the navigation bar

API diff

  • An API diff from the previous version is available.
