Subject [jira] [Commented] (PDFBOX-1502) Not Extracting Text from PDF Document
Date Thu, 02 Jan 2014 18:05:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-1502?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13860415#comment-13860415

Andreas Lehmkühler commented on PDFBOX-1502:

OK, I try to summarize all prior comments:

- PDFBox does extract all text of a pdf (if possible) excluding form values, annotations,
metadata etc.
- have a look at the [PrintFields|http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/pdfbox/trunk/examples/src/main/java/org/apache/pdfbox/examples/fdf/PrintFields.java]
example on how to extract form values
- updated pdfs, like the edited one, have to read using the non-sequential parser (use -nonSeq
as commandline option / use PDDocument#loadNonSeq instead of PDDocument#load within your own
code) as the old can't handle incremental updates

If there are any further questions, please address those to our [mailing lists|http://pdfbox.apache.org/mailinglists.html].
We don't use JIRA as A+Q-tool.
