Getting Started

You can easily use «PDF Focus .Net» in any .NET Framework or .NET Core application. Because of the component is completely written in C# managed code.

  1. Launch Microsoft's Visual Studio.

  2. Create a new project or open an existing.

    You may do this by two ways:

    1. Using Nuget (fast way):

      (Solution Explorer->right click by "References"->Manage Nuget Packages...->In the tab "Browse" type "sautinsoft" and find the "sautinsoft.pdffocus")

      Add the reference through Nuget

    2. Second (old good way): Adding a reference to the "SautinSoft.PdfFocus.dll" file:

      First of all, download the PDF Focus .Net package. Unzip it at any place in your computer and find the assembly file "SautinSoft.PdfFocus.dll".

      (Solution Explorer->right click by "References"->Add Reference...->Browse "SautinSoft.PdfFocus.dll")

      Add reference PDF Focus .Net

Add dependencies through Nuget (optional)

  • System.Xml.XPath.XmlDocument: "4.3.0" or up,

  • System.Drawing.Common": "4.7.0 or up.

(Solution Explorer->right click by "References"->Manage Nuget Packages...->In the tab "Browse" type "System.IO.Packaging" and find the "System.IO.Packaging", select version "4.4.0")
