PDF View doesn't seem ready for production

I have tested both the wpf and the windows pdf viewer, and I have to say it is in a sad state.  This is unnacceptable since it was one of the reasons I purchased this suite.

I opened up a pdf that was created from your mvc example and the buttons wouldn't show up.   How am I suppose to use this control?

Hi Thomas,

Thank you for your update.

We have checked the details and we are unable to reproduce the scenario. Could you please update us the pdf document that is not displayed correctly in pdfviewer control. This will be more helpful for our further investigation.

Look at your mvc example.  Create the pdf with the buttons.  Open it up in the PDF view and you will notice all the buttons are missing.

Hi Thomas,

Thank you for your update.

We have created the Pdf document with buttons and loaded it in PdfViewer and it renders correctly.

Please, follow the below steps to view the Pdf document with form fields.

1)      1)Load the document in PdfLoadedDocument
PdfLoadedDocument ldoc = new PdfLoadedDocument("Sample.pdf");

2)      2)Flatten the form fields
ldoc.Form.Flatten = true;

3)      3)Resave the document

4)      4)Load the Resaved document to the PdfViewer.

We have attached a simple Sample in the below link.

Sample: LoadingEditedFormFieldsMVC4.zip

Please, let us know if you need any further assistance.
