Black Ice Software is proud to announce the release of the Document Imaging SDK 12.80 to process/display legacy Wang annotations and many more.

The Wang annotations can be displayed and then saved in an easy to use XML format in an external file or the TIFF header for further display, processing, or easy conversion to another annotation format.

The Wang annotation was popular with Microsoft “Imaging for Windows” and some third party applications such as Global 360 and Open Text applications.
The Document Imaging SDK’s Wang annotation library functions enable a business to move from their old legacy applications to a portable third party platform such as the Black Ice Tiff Viewer.

The reading and converting of Wang annotations will enable developers to use the Document Imaging SDK to convert millions of documents from Wang annotations to Simple portable XML format.

Wang annotation objects added to the Document Imaging SDK:

  • Freehand Line (Implemented)
  • Highlighter (Implemented)
  • Straight Line (Implemented)
  • Hollow Rectangle (Implemented)
  • Filled Rectangle (Implemented)
  • Typed Text (Implemented)
  • Attach-a-note (Implemented)
  • Text from a file (Implemented)
