Below you will see a code snippet that will convert PDF Annotations to LEAD Annotations.

This snippet starts off by simply creating a new PDF Document and parsing the objects located within the PDF. It then looks at each page that has been loaded, creates a new annotation container and updates the mapper according the DPI values in the image. Next you will be setting the size of the new containers that were created. The image pixels will need to be converted to annotation coordinates which can be done by calling SizeToContainerCoordinates() and passing in the image size and using ToLeadSizeD() , this converts this LeadSize to a LeadSizeD. Finally call ConvertFromPDF. This Converts a list of PDFAnnotation objects into a list of AnnObject objects by adding it to target AnnContainer.

You will also find a demo of this in the project below. The demo is a complete multipage demo for loading a PDF with embedded annotations, modifying them, and then resaving them to the original PDF


List<AnnContainer> Containers = new List<AnnContainer>();

RasterImage image = null;

PDFDocument pdfDoc = new PDFDocument(pdfFilename);

// Parses the objects such as text items (characters), images, rectangles, annotations, form fields, 
//digital signatures, hyperlinks and fonts from one or more PDF pages
pdfDoc.ParsePages(PDFParsePagesOptions.Annotations, 1, -1);

foreach (var page in pdfDoc.Pages)
    AnnContainer newContainer = new AnnContainer();

    using (RasterImage pageImage = codecs.Load(pdfFilename, pdfDoc.Pages.IndexOf(page) + 1))
        if (image == null)
            image = pageImage.Clone();

        //Update this mapper with the specified DPI values.
        newContainer.Mapper.MapResolutions(image.XResolution, image.YResolution, image.XResolution, image.YResolution);

        //Set size of container by converting the image size coordinates to annotation coordinates
        newContainer.Size = newContainer.Mapper.SizeToContainerCoordinates(image.ImageSize.ToLeadSizeD());

        AnnPDFConvertor.ConvertFromPDF(page.Annotations, newContainer, LeadSizeD.Create(page.Width, page.Height));
