Here are some questions from VeryPDF's customers,

Hi,

Is there a way to turn off the creation of the XML and TTF font files? These take a long time to be created and I am only interested in the 'TextWithPosition.txt' output file.

Thanks

I want to extract text from PDF file based on Rectangle coordinates value. While extracting text I want to retrain the style applied to that text (ie: Bold, Italic) if possible including color and font name.

You can run following command line to extract only text and positions, for example,

pdfextract.exe -$ "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" -textpos test-form.pdf _test-form-pos.txt

You can call pdfextract.exe from C#, VB and VB.NET program languages. pdfextract.exe will create a text file with positions/coordinates like below, you can read this text file into your application and analyze it easily,
