Hello,

It's been a while since I had to extract text from a PDF. Previously, WF would detect PDF files in the background and start extracting the text.

I tried it with the latest release, however, Alt+Down does not start the extraction process.

Is that option no longer available?

Thanks,

Sonja

this may be a dumb question... Sep 30, 2005

because I've never used WF to extract text from a PDF document, but did you check whether the PDF document allows text extraction (look under File/Document Properties/Security)?

This was an old function Sep 30, 2005

...but as far as I know it was already removed from Wf 4.xx
Did you look it up in the manual? Probably PlusTools has something for pdfs.
Regards
Heinrich

Thanks. Sep 30, 2005

I haven't followed the development of WF and PlusTools very closely during the last year, so I had no idea it was moved to PlusTools.

Thanks for your help.

Sonja

P.S.
Kenneth, yes, I can extract text from the PDF manually.
