File DIsplay Slow

I have a file where 2 pages display very slowly using the SDK. The file is 9.7 MB so I can't upload it. The same pages display almost instantaneously in Adobe Reader and other PDF viewing applications. Is there any way to get it to you to look at? It's available here: http://eTakeoff.com/downloads/P...

Watermarks

I'm getting watermarks when I use the functions PXCp_InsertPagesTo() and PXCp_WriteDocumentA()

Should I be passing different arguments to PXCp_Init() than I pass to PXCV_Init()?

After further exploration it looks like what we need is just the core layer. When will that product be available.

BTW, the editor is no faster that the current DLL.

Slow display

We're using version 2.5.312.1. We're seeing slow display times on some files that display very quickly in Adobe. Is there any improvement in this from version 2.5.312.1 to the latest version 2.5.315.0?

Re: Extract page form one PDF and put it in another

So I would use PXC_NewDocument to create the empty destination document
Then use PXCp_InsertPagesTo() to copy pages from the source to the destination
Then use PXC_WriteDocumentA() to save the destination document to a file
Is that right?

Re: Searching for and highlighting key words

But I think the XCPRO40 Text Extraction methods will do what I want. It took me a while to figure out that the matric contained the coordinates. (That's explained in the documentation but I missed it.)

Re: Searching for and highlighting key words

I'm asking how to do it programmatically, using the SDK.

Since my original post I found the text extraction methods in the XCPRO40 library. It appears they would let me search for the text. But I don't see how to determine where the text would appear on the page so that I could highlight it.

Searching for and highlighting key words

I'm not sure which forum to post this in.

We would like to search documents for keywords then display pages with the keywords highlighted.

Is there a way to search, then get the document coordinates for where matches are located? Then we could do the highlighting ourselves.

Re: PDF Files with large bitmaps slow to display

When the user moves from one page to another, we call it on the previous page:

The slowness we're seeing happens even when zooming and scrolling on the same page.

Actually, because the bitmaps are monchrome, it only requires 24 MB per bitmap (30*40*400*400/8). That's not much memory for today's machines. Back in 1996 when we started it was a serious challenge, even at 200 DPI.
