PDF Form Datum Extractor from PDF files which contain XDP data or Dynamic XML Forms

Do you have a version that works for 1.7 format PDF files? I tried your demo using the following command line and it creates an empty file.

pdftoolbox test1.pdf -outformdata -outfile test.txt

http://www.verypdf.com/app/pdftoolbox/try-and-buy.html#buy

I am trying to extract data from a PDF form. For reference I have attached an example, pleas let me know if you need any more information.
(See attached file: test1.pdf)

Customer
------------------------------------------------------------
Your PDF file is contain dynamic XFA XML Form layer, you need convert this PDF file to static PDF file first, then you can extract data from it.

Thanks for the update.

I tried the following command line, but it failed with no error message.

pdftoolbox.exe test1.pdf -flattenform -outfile test1FLAT.pdf

Can you please provide me with the correct syntax for converting a file to Static PDF?

Customer
------------------------------------------------------------
You need open this PDF file in "Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2", save as to a new PDF file with "Adobe Static PDF Forms (*.pdf)" option, then you will get a new PDF file with static forms. Here are the setting to use when saving LiveCycle Forms to in order to merge XDP data with LiveCycle forms,

LiveCycle_Setup_SaveAs_StaticOnly

after you get the new PDF file, you can run following command line to extract form data from the new PDF file,

pdftoolbox test1.pdf -outformdata -outfile test.txt

Find and Replace Text Issues in PDF Text Replacer software

Hi there,

I am evaluating the PDF Text Replacer, and so far so good, other than the fact that it doesn't seem to be able to replace certain things..

For example, I am currently trying to replace the telephone number "01788 548855" with "0845 2300201", so I have set up the following rules under 'According to Content':
1. Find: 01788 - Replace With: 0845
2. Find: 548855 - Replace With: 2300201

The result: it replaces 01788 with 0845, but does not replace 548855 with 2300201.

I tried removing rule #1 so that the only rule being applied is to replace 548855 with 2300201 and it still doesn't work.

Can you advise? I am looking to buy this software if it works, immediately..

Customer
------------------------------------


We suggest you may use "PDF Text Replacer Command Line Standalone Version (pdftr.exe)" to instead of GUI version, the command line version is work better than GUI version,

http://www.verypdf.com/app/pdf-text-replacer/search-and-replace-pdf-text-command-line.html#pdftr
http://www.verypdf.com/dl2.php/pdftextreplacer_cmd.zip

You can use "-searchandoverlaytext" option to replace text in PDF pages easily,

pdftr.exe -searchandoverlaytext "PDFcamp Printer=>VeryPDF Printer" -overlaytextfontsize 8 D:\in.pdf D:\out.pdf

pdftr.exe -searchandoverlaytext "PDFcamp Printer=>VeryPDF Printer" -overlaytextfontsize 80% D:\in.pdf D:\out.pdf

VeryPDF
------------------------------------
Hi,

unfortunately I am still having issues using pdftr.exe - replacing 'website.co.uk' with 'myotherwebsite.com' is sometimes (but not always) missing out various characters when replacing, resulting in something like 'myothwebite.com' ...

Are you aware of anything that causes this? So far yours is the best software I can find for doing this, but still cannot purchase unless I can achieve accurate results.. I am required to convert several thousand PDFs so I cant afford for there to be many (if any) anomalies because there's no way I can check them all before publishing..

Please let me know your thoughts.

Customer
------------------------------------
Please use -searchandoverlaytext to instead of -contentreplace to try again, e.g.,

pdftr.exe -searchandoverlaytext "PDFcamp Printer=>VeryPDF Printer" -overlaytextfontsize 8 D:\in.pdf D:\out.pdf

Because -contentreplace is using original embedded font, if original embedded font is not contain "er" characters, "er" characters will missing out from output PDF file, the -searchandoverlaytext option solve this problem, so please use -searchandoverlaytext option to try again.

VeryPDF
------------------------------------
Hi there, that indeed is the answer to our problems..

Will be placing an order as soon as I receive approval from my superiors :)

Thanks a lot for the help!

How to convert Word documents to PDF files from ASP source code?

Good morning,

we need to use your product to convert any files to pdf, We have an internal web-application (.ASP) IIS 6.0, on Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 and we need to know which type of license to buy.

We tried your example but , as you informed about trial version on asp, it doesn't work, instead it worked if we call the exe directly from shell (with trial's alerts!!!)

(example : C:\Program Files (x86)\docPrint Pro v6.0\doc2pdf.exe"" -i C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Portale\ASP_Pages\test.txt -o C:\output.pdf).

Is it possible to call directly your exe from an asp page like the example below?
Otherwise let us know how to use your product for our scope.

oShell.Run """C:\Program Files (x86)\docPrint Pro v6.0\doc2pdf.exe"" -i C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Portale\ASP_Pages\test.txt -o C:\output.pdf"

ps: We are a Corporate and after purchase, we'll need an invoice.

Many thanks.
Customer

How to customize PDF Printer functions in docPrint Pro Royalty Free License?

Hello,

We're looking for a virtual printer that could be seamlessly integrated with our own software. I found on your website information about docPrint - it seems that we can use it in our solution.

http://www.verypdf.com/app/document-converter/try-and-buy.html

Below, I prepared list of all necessary requirements, I will appreciate if you could help me and write a comments if something is not doable by your software.

It could be a SDK or a separately installed driver. We just need to ensure that:

- On the output we receive POSTSCRIPT, EMF or PDF file (PDF is the most desirable)
- It could be installed from our setup app (even parameterized MSI would do the job)
- Custom name for virtual printer (one name for the entire solution, never gonna be changed after installation)
- Redirection to another local printer
- Redirection to another network printer (nice to have)
- Notification (executing app with parameters or event sent via named pipe) about start (nice to have) and end (must have) of the process
- Ability to work without the windows user logged in
- Ability to work as a network shared printer (nice to have)
- License = royalty free
- Printer need to be configurable somehow; register or an API would do
- We need to hide ALL additional printer related software, control panels etc. - it would be REALLY nice if our users have no obvious clues that the printer is provided by the third company
- Another nice to have feature is to be able to set separate settings for different windows users (like HKLM and HKCU when using system register)

- Customizable DPI
- PDF can have embedded fonts (nice to have)
- Text extraction (plain text format - ANSI, Unicode or UTF-8)
- PDF Searchable format
- Supported OS Windows XP/2003/2008R2/2012/Vista/7/8/8.1 driver

The printer will be integrated within our own software which will be publicly available to download. Please specify how the pricing would look like for such a solution (royalty free license is a must).

Regards and waiting for response.

How to embed fonts and replace fonts in PCL to PDF Converter? How to use mapfont.ini file to map PDF fonts to Windows fonts?
