The Document Imaging SDK’s latest release now includes new PDF features for developers to Text-Search PDF documents and Create Searchable PDFs! Additionally, new Annotation functions have been added for better text editing along with multiple enhancements to the usability of other existing Annotations.

The new Text-Search feature adds the ability to quickly search editable vector PDFs that contain font information. Developers can use the Text-Search to retrieve the text position and additional data for various text processing such as invoice lookup, patient record lookup, auto-redact, or auto-highlight.

The latest release is now capable of creating searchable PDFs from any image file such as, Faxes or scanned documents, and then resaving the document as a searchable PDF.
With these new PDF features, users can perform OCR and Search in real-time to more easily edit PDF documents.
The new PDF features are using OCR and text overlay technology to produce the searchable PDF.

Some of the main Annotation improvements revolve around editing Comment and Note annotation. Users are now more easily able to highlighting text to change font, color, and more or alternatively make the changes at the curser position in the text. For more detail about other Annotation improvements see the version notes below.
