We’re excited to announce the newest version of PSPDFKit for Web! Version 2021.5 adds the ability to crop individual pages of a document (or an entire document at once), upgrades accessibility features, and adds tons of minor fixes and improvements!
As part of the Document Editor component, we’re now introducing native cropping tools to our Web SDK. You can find the Document Crop option in the toolbar alongside the Document Editor.
To crop documents using custom controls, the Document Crop feature can also be accessed via our programmatic API. This API includes the crop operation, as well as event listeners that listen for changes in the
CropArea. For a full overview of this new feature, check out our document crop guide.
In our efforts to offer the best product possible, we take accessibility seriously. For this reason, PSPDFKit for Web 2021.5 includes upgrades for screen readers, which now announce:
Addition, deletion, and cancelation of bookmark operations
The total number of search results
When an image annotation is created or deleted
The button state when navigating in a dropdown
Additional Support for Blend Modes for Widget and Shape Annotations
PSPDFKit for Web now supports serialization and deserialization of the
blendMode property for all annotation types! Rendering blend modes — which was already supported for ink and highlight annotations — is now also supported for widget and shape annotations.
The release of PSPDFKit for Web 2021.5 also features a number of minor fixes and improvements. For a complete list of these changes, see the PSPDFKit for Web 2021.5 changelog.
