The following comes into mind (excuse me if already possible, i'm just started to learn about the Libraries)

- Complete Support for Touch Screens (Annotations for Example) - Note: i didn't test it yet myself if already possible
As i understand currently there is limited support for WPF Viewer (Pan & Scan)
- Support for PDF Layers (AutoCAD is generating PDF which have different Layers that can be turned on/off in Adobe Reader)
The possibility to hide/show those Layers would be welcome.

The WpfPanTool class already supports Touch Screens. For enabling the Touch Screen support you need set value of WpfPanTool.ProcessTouchEvents property to True:

Other visual tools also supports the ProcessTouchEvents property.

SDK already can work with layers of PDF document. Please read more info here:

Hopefully i found something that isn't already implemented :lol:

While trying to make the UndoManager to work, i noticed from your Demos that currently UndoManager is only implemented for VintaSoft Annotations and not Standard PdfAnnotations.

If that is the case, that would be really helpful if Undo/Redo also works with PdfAnnotations.

Update:
it might be a possible create a workaround to use VintaSoft Annotations and then convert them to PdfAnnotations, so during the creation the UndoManager would work, only Problem would be with existing PDF which already have PdfAnnotations saved, they couldn't be edited the same way.

Hello,

PDF annotations have complex structure and we need to do large work for implementing the undo/redo functionality for all PDF annotations.

SDK has open architecture and you can implement the undo/redo functionality for necessary PDF annotations by yourself. Please read about undo/redo functionality here:
https://www.vintasoft.com/docs/vsimagin ... -Undo.html
and let me know if you will have any question or problem.

Best regards, Alexander
