Subject [jira] [Closed] (PDFBOX-4275) Can't extract slanted text through the parsers of the PDFBox
Date Sat, 28 Jul 2018 13:17:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-4275?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Tilman Hausherr closed PDFBOX-4275.
    Resolution: Incomplete

Closing due to lack of feedback. You can still comment and/or reopen. PDFBox can extract diagonal
text. However it doesn't look good, for obvious reasons. There is no solution because each
glyph stands for itself, so only a human would know that this is part of something.

>    Affects Versions: 2.0.10
>         Environment: I tested that in the overried showGlyph() method of my class extending
 PDFStreamEngine, PDFGraphicsStreamEngine or PDFTextStripper.
>            Reporter: Soocheon Kim
>            Priority: Major
> The PDFBox (StreamEngine) extracts only texts that are rotated by 0, 90, 180 or -90
> For example, it can't extract texts rotated by 45 or 60 degrees.
