Microsoft have released a hotfix on the document preview control, and this is actually quite cool. In the following picture you see the preview pane have been updated with some new buttons.
Now we have ordinary functions like move, zoom, print, but we also have highlight, Blocking and some text functions.
This means we can make direct changes to the attached images, and this is interesting when we have scanned copies of invoices or any other document.
In the following picture, I have just highlighted some parts, and blocked some texts. I have also added a text of my own.
Why is this interesting? Because good developers is experts in “copy-with-pride” solutions. And we now have a new web-enabled control that allows us to create new extended solutions for handling scanned documents.
I expect that we very soon will see small invoice approval apps available at a fraction of the price we have seen before, and that is using this feature.
Try it out J It’s Cool.
