Features

  • Extract Text Paragraphs - In addition to searching and extracting lines of text, GcPdf now allows extracting entire text paragraphs from PDF documents.
  • Wider Range of Text Search - Now the text search works across line breaks. Text split between separate PDF text rendering operators (but appearing in the same paragraph) can also be searched and extracted. The FindText() method will now return an array of Quadrilaterals because text searches can occur across line bounds.
  • Enhanced Text Extraction Filters Redundant Text Lines - In many PDF documents, text renders multiple times in the same location, but visually it does not appear repeated in the PDF. Previously, extracting such text returned these redundant lines in the search results. With the latest release, search results will return only unique occurrences of the lines that are logically duplicated in the file.
  • Text Paragraphs in Tables - Tables with multi-line text in cells are sometimes rendered as single lines across all cells in a table row.
  • Outline (Remove) Fonts in a PDF - When a print supplier does not have access to fonts used in the PDF, the fonts must be removed before printing. GcPdf v3.2 includes page.Graphics.DrawTextAsPath. This Boolean property outlines the text and removes the fonts. The resulting PDF will look exactly like the original but with the glyphs rendered as graphics paths. This property can be used to manipulate the paths or to make it impossible to copy or search the text.
