We are excited to introduce Form Designer, a new component for PSPDFKit for Web. With Form Designer, you can now build workflows in which your end users can create and edit PDF form elements. In fact, one of our customers already successfully implemented a new signing workflow using Form Designer. Their use case involves one user (the “sender”) preparing a document for signing by adding signature fields and sending it out to one or many “signer(s).”
The Form Designer component enables an extensive set of APIs for creating and editing various PDF widget types — including text fields, check boxes, and signatures — and is available for both Standalone and Server-backed deployments.
You can build your own customized UI using our API, and we also have sample code available as a private preview. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in developing on top of our Form Designer component. We’d love to hear about your use case and talk about how you can best leverage Form Designer for it.
Docker Hub and npm
To make it easier to integrate PSPDFKit for Web into your existing infrastructure, we’re thrilled to announce that we now publish PSPDFKit on Docker Hub and npm. Existing distribution channels are not affected by this change and will still be supported.
Along with all the new features, this release also includes numerous bug fixes and minor improvements. For a complete list of changes, see the PSPDFKit for Web 2019.5 and PSPDFKit 2019.5 Server changelogs.
