Edit a Document


PSPDFKit Server has been deprecated and replaced by PSPDFKit Document Engine. All PSPDFKit Server and PSPDFKit for Web Server-Backed licenses will work as before and be supported until 15 May 2024 (we will contact you about license migration). To start using Document Engine, refer to the migration guide. With Document Engine, you’ll have access to robust new capabilities (read the blog for more information).

When you edit a document — for example, by rotating all pages — PSPDFKit Server saves a new asset for that document and updates all relevant annotations.

You rotate a document page and PSPDFKit Server stores the new PDF file.

  1. Your service requests that the Server rotates all pages of the document. PSPDFKit Server retrieves the document from the asset storage for processing.

  2. PSPDFKit Server transforms the document, rotating all of its pages.

  3. PSPDFKit Server persists the transformed document in the asset storage without deleting the original. It returns the new document’s properties to your service.
