  1. Adding Link annotation.
    Minimal set of fields for Link Annotation. This type of annotation supported for Slides, Words and PDF documents

    AnnotationInfo link= new AnnotationInfo()
       Box = new Rectangle(173.2986, 154.3131, 142.5, 9),
       FieldText = "",
       SvgPath = "[{"x":173.2986,"y":687.5769},{"x":315.79859999999996,"y":687.5769},{"x":173.2986,"y":678.5769},{"x":315.79859999999996,"y":678.5769}]"
       Type = AnnotationType.Link;
  2. GetPdfFile method can process documents with password.
    If you need to process document protected with password you should pass extra parameter for GetPdfFile method

    Stream convertedDocument = annotator.GetPdfFile(protectedDocument, "123password123");
