A free text annotation displays text directly on the page. Unlike an ordinary text annotation, a free text annotation has no open or closed state; instead of being displayed in a pop-up window, the text is always visible.

RadPdfProcessing cannot find startxref keyword at the end of a document if the document contains many zero bytes at its end. NotSupportedException is thrown with "Startxref keyword cannot be found" message. 
Workaround: Trim the ending zero bytes before loading the document to PdfProcessing. Example showing this approach can be found in the following KB article:
http://www.telerik.com/support/kb/winforms/details/notsupportedexception-startxref-keyword-cannot-be-found-when-loading-pdf-file-in-radpdfviewer-for-winforms

Currently, signature flags, represented by the 'SigFlags' optional entry, are not imported and exported, and there is no API for setting them.
As a result, documents signed with RadPdfProcessing (or with RadPdfViewer) appear in Adobe Reader without the blue 
document message bar at the top (the analogue of the RadPdfViewer's SignaturePanel).

If the API is supported, setting the flag to 1 or 3 would ensure that the message bar would be visualized in Adobe Reader.

Some customers need to export a single page of the PDF document to plain text. Expose such a possibility so the customers don't need to export the whole document.

While signing a document in Adobe Reader, the users can lock the document fields from editing. Expose a similar functionality.

The feature is described by the FieldMDP transform method, described on page 736 from the Pdf Reference 1.7

The signature field preserves information about the time of signing through the TimeOfSigning property of Signature.Properties. However, the DateTime object doesn't keep info about the time zone the document has been signed in. Some customers need to obtain this information.

When exporting a document with the .NET Framework implementation, only subsets of the used fonts are embedded in the document. 

This is currently not available in the Silverlight implementation, and it most probably won't be available in the .NET Standard implementation, as the current implementation is dependent on the WPF font classes.

Provide API to plug similar logic when using different platforms as well.

For instance, we may implement WritePageAsync method in addition to the existing WritePage method. This is a similar scenario as in System.IO.StreamWriter class which has WriteLine and WriteLineAsync methods.

The hierarchical document structure is a means to describe the PDF document structure, which is currently not supported. See 10.6.1 Structure Hierarchy on 856 page of the PDF specification for details.
This document structure is an alternative to the standard PDF structure and most non-Adobe software does not support it.

The document might have been created with Adobe software like Adobe LiveCycle Designer. Very often the document contains some fallback text in the standard PDF structure like:
"Please wait... If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of the document, your PDF viewer may not be able to display this type of document."
"The document you are trying to load requires Adobe Reader 8 or higher. You may not have the Adobe Reader installed or your viewing environment may not be properly configured to use Adobe Reader. For information on how to install Adobe Reader and configure your viewing environment please see  http://www.adobe.com/go/pdf_forms_configure."
"For the best experience, open this PDF portfolio in Acrobat X, Reader X, or later."

RadPdfProcessing currently supports interactive forms whose data is defined directly in the document. Add support for interactive forms based on the Adobe XML Forms Architecture (XFA). The entry is defined inside the interactive forms dictionary and refers to an XML stream containing the information of the form. More information is available on page 722 from Pdf Reference, version 1.7.
