Asked On July 10, 2014 05:46 PM UTC

I'm working on a project to find and replace text in an existing PDF. 

In the API, I see  a method on PdfPageBase to ExtractText(), but I don't see a way to update text. Is there a way to iterate through the PDF objects, find text, and change it? (or another way to do find/replace?)

Thanks!

Hi Chris,

Thank you for using syncfusion products,

Currently we don't have the support to edit existing Pdf  document, we have already added the feature request for "Need to add support to edit the existing document text" to our database.

We will implement this feature in any of our upcoming releases. We usually have an interval of at least three months between releases. The feature implementation would also greatly depend on the factors such as product design, code compatibility and complexity. We will update you when this feature has been implemented.

Please let us know if you need further assistance.

With Regards,

Praveen

Hi Varun,

Thank you for your interest in syncfusion products,

Currently we are working in other high priority features so we don’t have any immediate plan to implement the feature “Need to add support to edit the existing document text”, we will let you know once feature has been implemented.

Please let us know if you need further assistance.

With Regards,

Praveen
