We have implemented ConcatenationProgressHandler to check the status of concatenation. Please check the documentation link for details and sample code snippet.

Add Encoding for Non-Default Languages in PDF to Latex

While converting PDF to Latex, we need to use non-default languages specific font encoding for the conversion. We have introduced a property addFontEncs in LateXSaveOptions class for the purpose. Here is an example of adding Cyrillic encoding in PDF to Latex conversion.

Document doc2 = new com.aspose.pdf.Document("Test.pdf");

com.aspose.pdf.LaTeXSaveOptions opt = new com.aspose.pdf.LaTeXSaveOptions();

opt.addFontEncs("T2A", "T2B");

doc2.save("Test.tex", opt);

Get text width dynamically

Some of the customers need features to calculate text width dynamically. Now with this release, we can get text width dynamically with use of measureString() method. We can invoke measureString() method of com.aspose.pdf.Font or com.aspose.pdf.TextState classes (or both)
