How do I use the PDF-to-Text functions of the PDF-XChange PRO SDK to extract text from the fields of a flattened PDF form?
The text extraction functions of the PDF-XChange PRO SDK cannot be used for this purpose. This is because the extraction algorithm cannot recognise forms or their data after the process of flattening occurs. AcroForm field data can be extracted only when the PDF is in active AcroForm format. When PDF forms are flattened all references to fields and their data is lost.
