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));

Merge, split, copy, and move pages between PDF documents

A key PDF editing feature has been added! Users can now merge multiple PDF documents into a single document; split up a PDF into multiple documents; and copy and move pages within a PDF or between PDFs. Additionally, a FormXObject, a space-efficient way to store repetitive content, can be created from any PDF page and reused in the same or other documents.

Document-level file attachments

GcPDF 1.0 enabled users to add file attachments as annotations to PDF document, which pointed at document locations in the system. Now, GcPdf adds the ability to actually embed these files of different formats in PDF. Once PDF is generated, you can open these files from the PDF itself.
