GRAHL software design announces the immediate availability of PDF Annotator 7.1 for Windows. PDF Annotator is the universal PDF tool to add notes & annotations to any PDF document - comments, corrections, signatures, handwritten annotations, highlighting, even photos, designs and drawings.
In this release, we focused on performance, reliability and compatibility.
You will find no new features in this list - as we worked intensively "under the hood" of PDF Anntotator in the above mentioned areas, also laying the foundations for great new features in future versions!
Scrolling through complex documents has become faster than ever. We have rebuild PDF Annotator's display logic from the ground up, so scrolling is 2x faster at minimum, and up to 40x faster for documents with large amounts of handwritten annotations!
Saving documents on folders synchronized to cloud drives like Dropbox, Google Drive™ or Microsoft OneDrive™ could fail when those 3rd party tools accessed and blocked files for synchronization. We are now actively working around these issues.
When your computer runs out of battery, crashes, or has a hard drive failure, in the moment when you are saving a document, those files can become corrupted. We have introduced a new file saving strategy to reduce this risk of data loss in unexpected situations.
Latest Microsoft Outlook™ versions caused problems with the "File, Send Email" feature in PDF Annotator. We have found workarounds, so that "Send Email" will work flawlessly with those Outlook™ versions.
Memory management changes in the latest Windows 10 May 2019 Update caused problems while trying to open very large PDF documents in PDF Annotator. Our setup now works with Windows 10 in a way to make more memory available to PDF Annotator for opening large documents.
Post-editing PDF Annotator documents with other PDF tools can make it hard for us to identify the annotations added by PDF Annotator. With additional checks we try to detect those situations, and enable a more seamless PDF workflow with different PDF tools.
We have reduced the amount of memory required for PDF printing, to provide a faster and more reliable printing experience.
We have ideas for more improvement in some of the areas above, and we have great plans to build new functionality based on the "under the hood" work we just finished. Stay tuned!
