PDF Replacement issues, failed to replace text in PDF files

Hi,

I am testing the command line program pdftr.exe and I found these issues when changing 2620247009 to 262024****:

* It writes the previous field with the content 1.53789 to the changed text - blue box in the attached Output.pdf.

* The font is not the same when the text has been changed - red box in the attached Output.pdf.

I attached also the original pdf file Daily_Statement_01-23-2018_01-23-2018_(20247009).pdf.

Is there a chance it can be fixed or is it the general problem when working with PDF?

Kind regards,
Customer

We suggest you may use "-searchandoverlaytext" to instead of "-contentreplace" to try again, for example,

.\pdftr.exe -searchandoverlaytext "2620247009=>262024****" .\Daily_Statement_01-23-2018_01-23-2018_(20247009).pdf D:\Output.pdf

Will you work better with "-searchandoverlaytext" option?

Unfortunately your suggestion didn't change anything - see the attached pdf sample.

It finds always the preceding text [1.53789].

This is the output:
PS D:\pdftextreplacer_cmd> .\pdftr.exe -searchandoverlaytext "2620247009=>262024****" '.\Daily_Statement_01-23-2018_01-23-2018_(20247009).pdf' D:\Output.pdf

You may run following command line to try again,

pdftr.exe -wordbywordfrompdf 1 -replacesubstrings 1 -searchandoverlaytext "2620247009=>262024****" D:\input.pdf D:\_out.pdf

This is the screenshot of replacement in both input and output PDF files,

We hope this command line will work better for you.
