Subject [jira] [Commented] (PDFBOX-4515) Support for Add Text Callout Annotation tool.
Date Tue, 16 Apr 2019 18:50:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-4515?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16819393#comment-16819393

Tilman Hausherr commented on PDFBOX-4515:

OK, so getting the callout line works. About the rectangle - I see now that the rectangle
is the outer rectangle, i.e. with everything. So getting the inner rectangle is trickier.
I think the /RD entry plays a role. You can get that one with {{getRectDifference()}}. From
what I see, to get the lower values of the inner rectangle you add the first two /RD values
to the outer rectangle, and to get the higher values, you substract the last two /RD values.
To see what I mean, open the file with PDFDebugger.

> I am trying to extract information related to "Add Text Callout" annotation tool from
pdf. I get to know from initial research that it's a "FreeText" type annotation and it's intent
is "FreeTextCallout". But I am unable to figure out like how can I get the rectangle info
for both the box and arrow attached to it. I am able to get the bounding box which encloses
both the markups. I don't know it's already implemented or not.
