I'm editing the text controls from a Pdf file using PdfLoadedTextBoxField options.
I'm trying to display the Pdf with the PdfViewer but my text changes are not visible.
Saving the file and open it in an external Pdf viewer shows the changes all fine. It only happens on iOS, on UWP it's looking good.
Is there something else that need's to be done on iOS?

Hi Jurgen, 
Greetings from Syncfusion, 
At present we don’t have “Form fields support in Xamarin.Forms”. We have already planned to include it from our Essential Studio Volume 4 release which will be rolled out in the mid of December 2018. 
However, to preserve the text changes we suggest you flatten the form fields before loading the document in PDFViewer. 
ldoc.Form.Flatten = true; // Removes editing capability of form fields
