Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

Note
This section lists public API changes that were introduced in GroupDocs.Annotation for Java 19.4. It includes not only new and obsoleted public methods, but also a description of any changes in the behavior behind the scenes in GroupDocs.Annotation which may affect existing code. Any behavior introduced that could be seen as a regression and modifies existing behavior is especially important and is documented here.
  1. Export page range: To export specific pages  you should just to setup *ExportOptions *class, and then export as before.

    ExportOptions options = new ExportOptions();
    options.setFirstPage(5);
    options.setLastPage(8);
    

    Result: will be exported document pages started from page 6 and ending page 9.

    ExportOptions options = new ExportOptions();
    options.setFirstPage(4);
    options.setLastPage(4);
    

    Result: document will contain only one page with index 5. Note: there will be no effect if:

    • FirstPage > LastPage;
    • If FirstPage or / and LastPage < 0
    • If LastPage > document pages number
  2. Export only pages with annotations:

    To export only pages that contains annotations you should specify *AnnotatedPages = true *of *ExportOptions *class.

    ExportOptions options = new ExportOptions();
    options.setAnnotatedPages(true);
    

    Result: document that contains only annotated pages.

    ExportOptions options = new ExportOptions();
    options.setFirstPage(5);
    options.setLastPage(8);
    options.setAnnotatedPages(true);
    

    Result: document that contains only annotated pages inside this page range. If there not annotated pages, then document will contains only page from specific range.

  3. Export annotations of specific types:

    List<Byte> typesToExport = new ArrayList<Byte>();
    typesToExport.add(AnnotationType.Area);
    typesToExport.add(AnnotationType.Polyline);
    ExportOptions options = new ExportOptions();
    options.setAnnotationTypes(typesToExport);
    

    Result: document that contains only Area and Polyline annotations.

    List<Byte> typesToExport = new ArrayList<Byte>();
    typesToExport.add(AnnotationType.Area);
    ExportOptions options = new ExportOptions();
    options.setAnnotationTypes(typesToExport);
    options.setAnnotatedPages(true);
    

    Result: document that contains only annotated pages with only Area annotations.

    List<Byte> typesToExport = new ArrayList<Byte>();
    typesToExport.add(AnnotationType.Area);
    ExportOptions options = new ExportOptions();
    options.setAnnotationTypes(typesToExport);
    options.setAnnotatedPages(true);
    options.setFirstPage(5);
    options.setLastPage(8);
    

    Result: document that contains only annotated pages with only Area annotations inside range from 5 to 8th pag. If no Area annotation inside this range, then document just contains pages from 5 to 8.
