Create Table of Contents in Existing PDF & PDF to DOC Conversion Enhanced


What's New in this Release?

The latest version of Aspose.Pdf for .NET (8.3.0) has been released. This new release comes with great set of features and enhancements. For quite some time, Aspose.Pdf for .NET has provided the capability to generate a table of content when creating a new PDF document as described in Manipulating List of Contents. However, in this new release, we have introduced the capability to create table of contents inside an existing PDF document. The Document class in the Aspose.Pdf namespace gives the power to create as well as manipulate existing PDF files, so we added Heading and TocInfo classes to allow our customer to create TOC in existing PDF files. Further details regarding this feature can be found over Add TOC in existing PDF. When adding text to existing PDF files, we specify the font information for the TextFragment being added. Therefore we can either specify the font location from a file path or reference it from a stream object. When adding text to an existing PDF files using TextFragment, we can specify the obsolete position of the fragment using the Position property of TextFragment. Moreover we have also introduced many enhancements in terms of performance when converting large text files to PDF format, PDF to XPS conversion, PDF to TIFF conversion, HTML to PDF conversion and much more.
