New UI

We are pleased to introduce a new version of the PDF annotation UI.

  • The new UI includes an all-new annotation toolbar system. The new UI:

    • has better UX and a more attractive UI
    • is more easily customizable by APIs
    • accommodates more tools
    • is user-customizable
    • is nearly 100% backward compatible with the existing UI, making migration easy.

    The new UI is in beta, and you can learn more about it in our guide . It can also be trialed with Xodo from the App Store.


  • A new PTRubberStampCreate tool and UI control for adding rubber stamp annotations.
  • Adds the ability to edit PDF text content, via the "Edit Text" menu option for selected text in the Complete Reader sample. This feature is in beta with many improvements coming.
  • A new magnification loupe when creating or modifying measurement (ruler, perimeter, area) annotations.
  • New pages can now be added from the camera in PTAddPagesViewController .
  • Adds live annotation appearance support for rectangle annotations with cloudy borders.
  • XLS Office conversion is greatly improved as it is now converted using an Apryse-developed converter (rather than a WKWebView).
  • Adds ability to collaborate on PTSignatureWidget in the collaboration viewer.

This release of Apryse for iOS brings the core PDF functionality inline with version 8.0.0 of the Apryse cross-platform APIs. More information can be found on What's new for cross-platform APIs .

  • Fixes an issue with free text annotations on rotated pages.
