FreeTextAnnotation Does Not Render in Pdf

Using Aspose.Pdf v11.2.0.0, any FreeTextAnnotation I create will not render in the resulting pdf when I view it in the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC (2015.010.20056). In Acrobat, when I click on the pdf where the annotation is, it is highlighted.


I can reproduce using the sample code from your documentation:
http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/pdfnet/Set+Formatting+of+FreeTextAnnotation

Sample Code
var pdfDocument = new Aspose.Pdf.Document();
pdfDocument.Pages.Add();
Aspose.Pdf.InteractiveFeatures.DefaultAppearance default_appearance = new DefaultAppearance(“Arial”, 28, System.Drawing.Color.Red);
FreeTextAnnotation freetext = new FreeTextAnnotation(pdfDocument.Pages[1], new Aspose.Pdf.Rectangle(200, 400, 400, 600), default_appearance);
freetext.Contents = “Free Text”;
pdfDocument.Pages[1].Annotations.Add(freetext);
pdfDocument.Save(“C:/temp/Watermarked_output_FreeText.pdf”);

Hi Brad,


Thanks for your inquiry. It seems you are evaluating Aspose.Pdf for .NET without a valid license because you are facing issue due to evaluation version. Please make a request of 30 days temporary license and implement it to evaluate Aspose.Pdf without any limitation, it will resolve the issue. Please find sample documents for your reference.

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Best Regards,
