New features

  • Adds an Apple Pencil interaction mode setting to the PTToolsSettingsManager to control how Apple Pencil and fingers are treated when creating annotations. The different modes for the new PTToolsSettingsManager.PencilInteractionMode setting are:
    • Apple Pencil and finger touches create annotations.
    • Apple Pencil touches create annotations, fingers pan and zoom.
    • The iOS Pencil system setting is obeyed.
    The default Apple Pencil interaction mode is to obey the iOS Pencil system setting on iOS 14 and above, and to accept Pencil and finger touches on iOS 13 and below.
  • Shape annotations (rectangle, ellipse, line, arrow) can now be created with a single tap when the respective shape creation tool is active.
  • App-wide settings in the PTToolsSettingsManager can now be accessed from the viewer via the AppSettingsButtonItem. By default, this item is hidden. The AppSettingsButtonHidden property can be used to show this item in the more-items list from the ellipsis button in the navigation bar.
  • The magnification loupe will not be shown when creating text markup annotations with an Apple Pencil.
  • It is now possible to specify the UIDatePickerStyle for form widgets which use a date picker. This can be controlled with the following API: PTWidgetAnnotationOptions.PreferredDatePickerStyle.
