Release notes are available for the following public releases:
PDF Editor v188.8.131.52
Link to other PDF files from the existing file — When a user clicks on a hyperlink in the document that’s linked to another PDF file, this file is opened in PDF Editor in a new tab.
Electronic signatures can be reused — Any electronic signature (as well as any image) added through the signature tool is cached and will be available again when adding signatures back to the same document or to other documents in the same browser.
Implemented shareable links that will open files in PDF Editor — The Copy Links feature is accessible in all product offerings through a button in the toolbar of PDF Editor. Additionally, in the case of the web part and extension, there's an extra option to copy links that's available via the SharePoint context menu. It's important to note that only users with an active PDF Editor license can open the links.
Custom stamps can be stored in local storage and reused — These stamps can be used on different documents as long as the PDF Editor is opened in the same browser.
PDF Editor v184.108.40.206
Digital signatures status — Signed documents display a banner about signatures, and users receive a warning when a document is modified.
Annotation improvements — It’s possible to perform clipboard actions like cutting, copying, pasting, and duplicating annotations using keyboard shortcuts. Additionally, there’s a new undo functionality for annotations, and new annotations are tagged by creation time and username.
PDF Editor tabs — PDF Editor can now be opened in a new tab.
Unsaved changes — A warning appears when there are unsaved changes.
Lightweight co-authoring — PDF Editor now opens a file in read-only mode if another user has already checked out the file in SharePoint. Additionally, if two users are modifying the same document (without checking it out in SharePoint), PDF Editor will attempt to merge the changes from one user when the other saves their changes.
Real-time watermarking — If real-time watermarking or securing is enabled, documents open in read-only mode.
PDF Editor v.220.127.116.11.
PDF form creator tool — Create interactive and non-interactive forms by using different widgets: buttons, text, radio buttons, checkboxes, combo boxes, data, and signatures. These widgets have a wide range of options that can help you create different styles of form fields and customize the look of your PDF forms.
Text redaction tool
Area redaction tool — We added a redaction tool that lets you point, click, and drag over a region in your document.
Measurement tools — It’s now possible to measure the distance, perimeter, and area of drawings in a document with PDF Editor.
SharePoint metadata in annotations — We added the ability to include metadata in any annotations created in your document. This means that when a user adds a comment to a PDF document, the metadata of the user is placed in the annotation automatically.
