GroupDocs.Editor for .NET 20.9 Release Notes

GroupDocs.Editor for .NET version 20.9 contains mostly bug fixes, but also a list of different improvements, which, however, don’t alter the public API. All of them are described below.


Added new list item numeric markers

Microsoft Word and Office Open XML format support a lot of different list item numeric markers, not only usual Arabic or Roman numbers and Latin letters. GroupDocs.Editor supports only a subset of these markers. However, starting from 20.9, this list of supported markers was expanded. In particular, 3 new numeric markers are now supported:

  1. Devanagari, also known as Hindi
  2. Hindi
  3. Hebrew

Support of citation blocks

Office Open XML documents can contain such elements as citation blocks, which can have different adjustable appearance and behavior. Prior version 20.9 their presence in the document caused an exception; now they are fully supported.

Support of several new fields

Started from version 20.9 the GroupDocs.Editor fully supports PAGEREF and BIBLIOGRAPHY fields, while before this version their presence in the document caused an exception. Also now are supported multi-paragraph FORMTEXT and REF fields, while previously they were supported only in single-paragraph configuration (when field spans inside some particular paragraph).


GroupDocs.Editor version 20.9 contains lots of bug-fixes, related mostly to exception during editing documents of different formats by transforming them to the EditableDocument instance.
