Release Notes

UiPath.PDF.Activities v2.0.0

Release Date: 25th April 2019

New Features and Improvements

This major release brings five new activities to the PDF activities pack, helping you manipulate more aspects of PDF documents, as follows:

The change to v2.0.0 is also due to the fact that the engine of the PDF activities has been overhauled, and now uses a more efficient method of retrieving text from .pdf and.xps files. This change is reflected in the old activities of this pack, as well, meaning that the Read PDF With OCR and Read XPS With OCR activities have some new properties, as well as some upgraded old ones.

Breaking Changes

  • The v2.0.0 PDF activities pack is no longer compatible with Studio versions below v2018.3.
  • The Read PDF Text and Read PDF With OCR activities have been optimized, and now use a different, better method of retrieving and organizing text. This may cause breaking changes in already existing workflows, as the output text might be different.
