How to save file with annotations?



In the new annotation module version 3.0 how can a user save the file with the annotations as seen in the viewer ? I see an “export” action, but this only exports the original document with comments if wanted.

This used to be doable by setting a flag of “.ShowPrint(true)” in the init of the annotation html block. It seems this flag has been removed. Is there another way to accomplish the same functionality or has the feature not been ported/built out yet ?

Hi John,

Thank you for giving a try to GroupDocs.Annotation 3.0.0 API.

The current front-end example is open source and anyone can upgrade it according to its need the feature you requested (showprint) is currently not available in front-end example, you can achieve your desired output results from export option as well but still we are moving your request to front-end team to incorporate it in fornt-end example. Once we get any update from front-tend team we will update you here.
