Citation Software offers new SDK for PDF editing/viewing — supports PDF forms

For immediate release

WESTBOROUGH, MA, April 3, 2005 — Version 3.0 of the Jaws PDF Editor Software Development Kit (SDK) is now shipping. Developed by Global Graphics Software and offered for licensing by Citation Software, the Jaws PDF Editor SDK allows programmers to incorporate PDF-viewing capabilities and PDF-editing capabilities into their applications. This new version of the SDK provides quite a few new features; mainly support for AcroForms (also known as PDF forms), an improved rendering engine, and enhanced text-searching support.
  • Support for AcroForms: Displays and prints PDF files that contain the following PDF form elements: text boxes, buttons, check boxes, combo boxes, and radio buttons. Also supports the entry of data into PDF forms and the saving of that data. The saving of data is supported either within the form itself, or as a separate FDF file.

  • Improved rendering engine: The Jaws RIP rendering engine has been added to the product, replacing the GDI+ renderer as the default engine. The Jaws PDF RIP rendering engine is a highly advanced renderer that offers speed and advanced functionality. Note that the programmer still has the option of using the GDI+ rendering engine, if desired.

  • Enhanced text-searching support: The text-search interface methods have been enhanced to provide more search options and faster searching. In addition, the SDK now allows an external search engine to search the PDF document, by providing an externally searchable text buffer.
Other new features in Version 3.0 include enhanced support for transparency, more flexibility when working with password-protected PDF documents, and enhanced debugging support for the distillation process (the process of converting a PostScript file to PDF format).

Citation Software offers attractive OEM-licensing plans that are geared for small and medium-sized businesses. For more information about the Jaws PDF Editor SDK, telephone Citation Software at 888-260-7316 or send email to
