Delete Text from PDF

Post by blewis » Thu Sep 27, 2018 10:29 pm

I don't see anything that would help in the reference guide, but I wanted to ask. Is there any way to search for and delete a few words of text from each page of a PDF? When I open a sample PDF in Acrobat, I can see that the text I want to delete is isolated in it's own bounding box, so I don't know if that will help or not in this process.

Hello Bryan,

Such feature is not implemented. It basically requires to modify content stream of pages / objects which implies a lot of challenges.

We have plans to provide text modification support but unfortunately we can't provide a deadline for a first release yet.

Thank you for your understanding.
