With the major release of PB 2019 is over, shall we know what Appeon thinks about some of the pending enhancement requests ?

1.  PDF enhancement - Page size, merging, etc.

2.  Modern Graph 

Still more there...

Such pending enhancements makes us to look for third party software.  Is there any plan to enhance these ?  If yes when ? which version ? Will PB 2017 R3 get these enhancements or not ?

PB 2017 R3 is a long-term support (LTS) version, and we have already released PB 2019.  A LTS version will not get any new features (i.e. new revisions)... just bug fixes (i.e. maintenance releases).

Please look at the roadmap page, which is what we can say with reasonable reliability about the revisions planned for PB 2019: https://www.appeon.com/developers/roadmap  

I will add three key points:

1. NativePDF feature has been well received by Appeon customers, so there is good chance we would continue to enhance this in the future even though we already enhanced it over and over in each revision of PB 2017.

2. However, since PB 2019 has added lots of major features, we need to revise those features with a higher priority.  We don't want to repeat Sybase's mistakes of putting out lots of features that aren't usable by most customers.

3. As such, if you urgently need the features you mentioned then I would recommend you look into third-party solutions.
