Annotations not drawing correctly

Thu Nov 15, 2018 9:47 pm

I have a PDF document and am drawing a rectangle over existing graphics. For some reason the annotation is not matching up with the correct area picked. It seems to be offset by an amount of pixels. I have attached a video to clearly show this behaviour.

Thanks

Simon

Hello Simon,

Can you recreate that with the End-User Editor with normal rectangle tool?

Cheers,
Alex

Hi Alex,

Yes this can be reproduced within the End User Editor, see screen shot.

I have also attached the native PDF.

Thanks

Hello Simon,

It seems that there is a bug with matrices and border width. It differs from starting point (if you are drawing from bottom left everything would work OK). We will look into this.

Alex

Hi Alex,

I have tested drawing from the bottom left and it gives the following results:

Border.png


As you can see the rectangle is drawn inside the black square that I snapped to. However should this not be drawn as half the border width outside and half the border width inside the black rectangle? This is normally how other 2D drawing applications function.

Thanks

Simon

Hello Simon,

The PDF annotations differ from the 2D applications - the rectangle annotation draw it's border that way, so that all of it is inside the area, not just it's skeleton.

OK Alex, that is good to know.

However is there any idea on a timescale for resolving the initial drawing over snapped content from top, left to bottom, right?

Thanks

Simon

Hello Simon,

We've created a bug on this matter for the appropriate developer. I'm afraid that there is no timescale for this one.

Alex

Thanks Alex,

Will this issue be resolved in build 328 as it is quite a big one for me
