We're happy to announce the new release of GrapeCity Documents for PDF (GcPDF) v2.0.0. GcPDF adds powerful features for PDF documents in .NET Standard 2.0-targeted applications. Let's take a look at some of the new features we've added in this release.

Tagged PDF (PDF/UA)

The Tagged PDF feature helps you tag content in a PDF. This makes it easy to read a PDF by screen reader software, or for users who rely on assistive technology. You can create and load PDF/UA compliant files. You can also create, load, modify tags, and save the document back as PDF.

StructElement seParagraph = new StructElement("P");
seParagraph.DefaultPage = page;
// add it to Part element
sePart.Children.Add(seParagraph);

// draw TextLayout within tagged content
g.BeginMarkedContent(new TagMcid("P", i));
g.DrawTextLayout(tl, new _Point(20, y));
g.EndMarkedContent();

// add content item to paragraph StructElement
seParagraph.ContentItems.Add(new McidContentItemLink(i));
