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..

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,

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

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.

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.
