Due to a high volume of customer requests, GrapeCity Documents is pleased to release the new Signature tool. This tool helps end-users add graphical signatures to PDF documents in the online PDF Viewer on the go. The Signature tool can sign various documents in business applications, such as legal contracts, budget approvals, purchase orders, and many others. By selecting the tool from the Annotation Editor’s default toolbar, users will be able to draw, type, or add image signatures to PDF documents on the web, set signature properties, and much more.

GrapeCity Documents for Excel v4.1 includes several highlights, such as updates to the existing .NET Excel Library and API toolkit and performance improvements in Excel template processing. With the ProcessTemplate() method, generating Excel documents from templates is now faster than ever before. After testing up to 100,000 records, users can take advantage of a more efficient way to process several records from a datasource. GcExcel also offers more features for SpreadJS integration, like support for RangeTemplate cell types. This new class allows users to define a template of cell ranges as a single cell type and apply that template to a cell.

With innovative updates to GrapeCity Documents for Word, the team has improved several scenarios when applying copy and move range operations in Word documents.
