The most remarkable additions in the 2.0 release are:

  • introduction of iText DITO Manager;
  • redesign of iText DITO Editor;
  • automated generation of tables of content and bookmarks based on template headings;
  • optimization of iText DITO SDK to securely collaborate with iText DITO Manager;
  • deployment of the full application via Docker containers, and - as a consequence - deprecation of the native Java flavor of the iText DITO SDK.

From all of us here at iText, we wish you happy templating!

Bugs

  • Row height can be set and is applied in HTML but is not applied in PDF;
  • Succession of undo operations (ctrl+z) when using the PDF/UA compliance checker may lead to a crash of the iText DITO Editor front end;
  • In odd cases a succession of select all (crtl+a) and bold (ctrl+b) short keys inside a rich text element deletes conditional content settings on substrings in the active rich text element.
