Office-Inspired Products
09 December 2019

Before we get to 2020, we’d like to thank you for all your help in 2019. Your feedback and engagement helped us reshape the direction of our Office File API and Office-inspired desktop UI controls. Of course, we didn’t get everything right nor were we able to deliver all the features you requested, but we remain committed to your business needs and want to do everything possible to earn your business in 2020.

To that end, please take a moment to review the following questions and help us finalize our 2020 Roadmap. (We expect to publish our official roadmap in January 2020).

To help us prioritize development efforts, please cast your vote for features/capabilities you’d like to see us introduce in 2020. Please limit your vote to those items that represent the highest value to your business.

Before we let you go

Last year, many of our you cast votes for the following two features:

  • Sign PDF document multiple times
  • Footnote/Endnote support for our Word Processing components

Though we were unable to release these features in 2019, we expect to add both in 2020.

As always, we welcome your comments and feedback. Feel free to share your thoughts below.

Dear DevExpress, 

I cannot believe that Footnotes are going to make it in 2020!  This is really fantastic news for us (and more importantly our users  :-))    Please consider 20.1  :-)

Improving PdfViewerControl performance would be great, because it is quite slow compare to other pdf viewers.

Hello,


abstract objects like PdfTable (column + row), paragraphs would be nice. Like iTextSharp has already built into.

The low level PDF-API is quite outdated.
