Accusoft PDF Xpress version 7 is a powerful control that enables the user to build applications supporting PDF file creation, editing, and viewing using licensed Adobe technology. PDF Xpress is delivered as both a .NET Software Development Kit (SDK) and an ActiveX SDK. It is used to create PDF documents, modify and reorganize existing PDF documents, access metadata, view and create PDF/A documents, and more.

PDF Reading Support

  • Read all PDF documents, including any version PDF through v1.7.
  • Load PDF documents from file or memory.
  • Extract text and use PDF Xpress features to return location and context of text search results. (Extract text from Normal or Searchable Image PDFs then identify text matches using any desired technique. PDF Xpress will provide the context and location of the match phrase.)
  • Export PDF annotations to XFDF (XML) - This enables PDF Xpress to work with NotateXpress to annotate PDF documents. See samples and demos included in the SDK.
  • Access document metadata, bookmarks, and thumbnails.
  • Render pages to Bitmap, DIB, EPS, or RAW.
  • Specify render options, including portion of page to render, target resolution, and bit depth.
  • Render large pages to higher resolution (e.g., for optimized display of large engineering drawings).
  • Render copy-protected PDF documents where content copying and extraction is not allowed (commonly produced by legal and financial institutions). 

PDF Writing Support

  • Create and Save PDF.
  • Add images to a PDF page:
    • JBIG2 (Lossy and Lossless)
    • PNG
    • JPEG (sequential or progressive)
    • JPEG 2000 (Lossy and Lossless)
    • GIF
    • BMP
    • RAW
  • Create Searchable Image (Image with Hidden Text) PDF - using OCR Xpress with PDF Xpress sample code (PDF Xpress provides the ability to construct an image-over-text PDF, using text output from OCR Xpress, and the associated image compressed by ImagXpress. This enables the developer to create highly compressed image-over-text PDFs, with searchable text.).
  • Add, modify, and delete PDF Bookmarks, linking to pages within the document that can be displayed as an outline in Acrobat Reader.
  • Modify and write document metadata.
  • Add, replace, or delete thumbnails associated with a page in a PDF document.
  • Append, insert, move, or delete pages within a PDF document (e.g., to split one PDF file into multiple files, or merge two PDFs together).
  • Import PDF annotations from XFDF (XML) into PDF document. This enables PDF Xpress to work with NotateXpress to annotate PDF documents.
  • Save PDF documents to memory or file.
  • Save Linearized PDF documents for rapid display.
