Re: Migrating from PDF Tools to Core API

In the documentation for the 331 release, I see there are methods IIXC_Page::GetPageDC and IIXC_Page::ReleasePageDC but there is not much in the way of description. Are these the methods that fill the same role as PXC_GetContentDC?

Migrating from PDF Tools to Core API

We are evaluating the Core API SDK version 7.0.325.1. We have used the PDF Tools SDK for a number of years and versions. Our existing code uses PXC_GetContentDC extensively. Does the new API provide similar functionality?

The SpecVersion14 workaround was successful, and the original fix looks good as well. I will keep watching for a new build.
