What's new in this version:

PDF Annotator 8.0.0.832
- Changed: Predefined line widths now correspond to the same physical width on any device
- In previous versions, the six predefined line widths ("Thin" to "Very thick" under the "Line
Width" dropdown menu) resulted in different physical widths, depending on your screen settings
(dpi), so that they were different from case to case. This has now been fixed.
- Also, the predefined line widths in fullscreen mode (in the quick configuration box, clicking the active tool button a second time) have been set to the same values as in regular (windowed) mode.
- Note: These changes do not affect already defined tools, favorites, stamps or annotations.
- Improved: Faster file saving when using large numbers of identical picture stamps
- Improved: Faster snapshot creation for very large snapshots (whole page, large snapshot resolution)
- More minor fixes and improvements

PDF Annotator 8.0.0.810
Improved:
- "Auto-Smooth" can now differentiate better between sketches and text, to avoid unintended snapping of lines to written text. Also, exactly horizontal/vertical lines keep their orientation when "snapped".
- The Shift key (e.g. when drawing squares or circles) now always inverts the current setting. For example, drawing a square can be forced by pressing Shift while the "rectangle" setting is active. Drawing a rectangle is forced by pressing Shift while the "square" setting is active.
- When restoring deleted strokes/objects with the Undo command, these will be re-inserted at the original position above or below other elements.
- When resizing selected objects or drawing objects (lines, circles...) with pen or finger, the Windows default behaviour "Press and Hold" got invoked, if the pen or finger was not moved immediately. Now, this behaviour is only available in certain situations (e.g. when doing press and hold on selected objects).
- Moving/resizing selected objects with pen or touch required a minimum movement to start. This has been reduced, so the drag operation can immediately begin
- Panning/scrolling in the document has been optimized
- Printing on PostScript printers has been optimized
- You can now draw very small objects, like lines or circles. Previously, those objects had to have a larger minimum size
- When option "Display keyboard when editing text annotations" is active, invoke the virtual keyboard provided by Windows (instead of our own implementation)

Fixed:
- Arrowheads did draw incorrectly in some situations
- Error on extracting text that contained certain special characters in non-latin languages
- Error when drawing lines on very large screens
- Flickering when font dropdown list was opened for the first time
- Error after resuming the computer after hibernation/suspend
