A new dedicated interface to convert any file with an associated application directly to PDF. (PrintToPdfModule.PrintToPdf())
Includes options to adjust page margins, orientation, and size. (PrintToPdfOptions)
The PrintToPDF module is only available on Windows systems, and is packaged as an independent download
PDF generation is performed using a high performance Windows-certified virtual printer driver.
Can now determine the size (number of cells) of sheets within an Excel document and potentially skip those sheets during Excel-to-PDF conversion (DocumentConversion.GetNextExcelSheetCellCount() and DocumentConversion.SkipNextExcelSheet()). This should allow for better management of conversion time and system resources when converting Excel documents with a great number of cells.
Added an option that can be used delay the start of HTML conversion to better handle cases where it is difficult to determine when the page is fully loaded. (HTML2PDF.WebPageSettings.SetConvertDelay())

[.net] Added OCROptions.SetAutoRotate() to the .Net Core/Standard/5/6 interface.
[pdf] Adjusting digital signing logic to ensure that the Field read-only flag is applied to all fields locked by the new signature, preventing them from being edited.
[ocr] OCROptions.SetOCGEngine() will now throw an error if the input is not valid rather than ignoring it silently.
[cad] Adjusted the CAD module user-tunable font substitution system to work with fonts meant to be located within .rsc files.
[cad] The CAD Module now includes more substitute fonts within the package, chosen to match the character spacing of fonts built in to typical DGN editing applications.
[image] Upgraded LibWebP used by the Advanced Imaging Module to version 1.3.2.
[all] Fixed a crash that would occur initializing with a call-home key and subsequently initializing again with no key. In particular this could occur when using PDFViewWPF.

[cad] Addressed some issues with handling relative input file and resource paths in CAD conversion.
[cad] Fixed an issue where the font substitution logic could be bypassed for text specified within text nodes.
[cad] Fixed an issue where fonts would be stored temporarily in the CAD module folder. This could cause failures in environments where write access was not available like IIS.
[cad] Adjusted DGN gradient hatching to use bitmaps rather than PDF triangle meshes, resulting in a PDF that tends to be much smaller and faster to render.
[cad] Fixed issue with layer handling that could (rarely) make unexpected changes to other CAD content such as line dimensions.
[docx] Improved frame positioning accuracy in Word documents.
[xlsx] Unsupported sheet types (e.g. dialog sheets) are now gracefully ignored instead of causing errors.
