Text Replacement

  • Victor Nascimento

    Hello! I was wondering whether it's possibile to replace some text inside a PDF…

    Just like I have some tags like

    <tag1> text between tags<tag2>

    Replace '<tag1>' by 'This is a' and '<tag2> by '.' so it looks like 'This is a text between tags.'

    Thanks in advance.

    PDF is a format unsuitable for text replacement, as contents are typically broken into arbitrary chunks placed at absolute coordinates (no linear flow!).

    I see… In last hours I've been reading about the format and how the contents are stored (as a stream).

    Thank you for such a great project! :D
