    Examining page content

    In the visualizer section of the pdfToolbox Desktop, the Object Inspector allows identifying page content, but viewing which objects form a PDF page, and what their attributes are. Two new concepts: "Wireframe viewing" and "Object type filtering" have been implemented here.

  • With pdfToolbox libraries versions and projects can easily be managed. Supposedly, a printing company has compiled records with profiles, checks and corrections for a particular workflow or customer. Now it is possible to spread them and manage different version across multiple workstations via libraries.

    1. For a customer or a workflow a library was created.
    2. If the requirements change or if new pdfToolbox features are integrated, the existing library can simply be duplicated, a new version number (possibly also with the current date) can be given and the additional checks, profiles and corrections can be added.
    3. The new, additional library could then be called "customer-v1.1-2016-06-26" or "Printer v1.1-2016-06-26".
    4. Further updates will be processed the same.

    In this way, it is non-destructive and any changes in the procedure are tracked.
