Docotic.Pdf 5.5 brings improvements in version for .NET Standard, new features and more

Hi,

The new version of Docotic.Pdf library is now available on our site and on NuGet.

Version for .NET Standard 2.0 now has all the same features as in the version for .NET 4. It means that PDF to image conversion, extraction of images with masks, scaling and resizing of images, creation of image masks, loading of fonts from the collection of system fonts are now supported in the version for .NET Standard 2.0.

Some of our customers suggested us to provide a way to save PDF documents to bitonal TIFFs. Such images are also known as black-and-white or monochrome. For documents with mostly text content monochrome TIFFs can save a lot of space without affecting visual quality. We heard what our customers wanted and added the ability to save whole PDF files or individual PDF pages as black and white TIFFs. There is a new sample code for the feature.

We clarified and extended interface of the PdfDrawOptions class. It includes marking a few properties obsolete. Please check the Version History document for more info about what was marked obsolete.

As always, we worked on speed improvements. Text extraction got better. We improved support for broken and incorrect documents. And we fixed some bugs of our own.
