What's New in Essential Studio for WinForms


What's New in Essential Studio for WinForms

Our Windows Forms suite never ceases to improve, now with headers and footers for the backstage view in the Ribbon, PDF invoices with ZUGFeRD 2.1 compliance for the PDF Library, and the preservation of custom autoshapes during DOCX-to-PDF conversion in the Word Library.


Previously, backstage items could only be placed at the top of the backstage view. Now, they can be arranged at the top or bottom.
