Subject Getting font size of letters
Date Sun, 06 Jan 2019 09:26:27 GMT
Hello ,


In this PDF sample:



When it try to get the font sizefor any letter it always returns 1.0, using
this code:

public class PDFTextStripperExtender extends PDFTextStripper {


             public void processTextPosition( TextPosition text )  {

                        System.out.println( "- " + text + ": Font Size: " +




I've also tried "text.getFontSizeInPt()". It returns better values, but
they're not right when compared to Adobe Acrobat font size values.


What's the reason for that? And can I get the real size of fonts for each
letter somehow?


Best regards,
