select text in pdf

Post by dathunghan » Wed Mar 13, 2013 4:36 pm

I know how to select an area and extract the text in the area. But it's not user friendly how they would select to copy a paragraph. Is there anyway GDViewer control when it displays a pdf would allow user to select text by highlighting it, just like how you select text in adobe reader?


Thanks.

Hello,

Unfortunately no. We still do not have this feature but it should be available in a next release.

Kind regards,

Loïc

We are currently using GDPicture 8.5. and our customer really want select/copy text functionality. Can you tell me what would be the time frame for the next release that has this function included?

Thanks,
Dat.

Unfortunately not, I can't promise nothing yet. And I have no estimation.

Kind regards,

Hi,

We are using GDPicture 10.2.0.23. Can we select text in a PDF file using mouse as in Adobe PDF reader? In your previous post you had mentioned that it will be available in next release. Is it there now?? If yes, then how to do it..

Hi,

Unfortunately no, you cannot select text via mouse as of yet.

Best,
Sami

Hi,

This is a very basic feature in a PDF Viewer. It is disappointing that GDViewer does not support it.
