I want to purchase the VeryDOC PS2PDF SDK but I have a problem.
The purpose I need to convert the PS to PDF is to search for texts in the file I already have another SDK for this operation that I purchased from another company.
My problem is that when I did the test on the evaluation DLL without the license code I got the warning "this file was created using verypdf…." On the PDF I don't care about the text added, but when I read the other texts from the PDF I don't receive anything, its like the warning you add goes on top of all other texts and I can search for the original texts in the PDF.
Is there a temporary license code you can send me for the DLL that will do the conversion for a limited amount of time so I can test functionality of text searching in the PDF after conversion and then if it is working then I will purchase the SDK
Please replay quickly, it is quite urgent as I am testing other PS2PDF SDK tools simultaneously.
Thanks for your message, is your PS file contain Type3 or custom-build encoding fonts? If yes, you will unable to search or extract text contents from output PDF file, because Type3 font is not the REAL characters, they are just character outlines.
However, you can use VeryPDF PDF to Text OCR Converter Command Line application to convert non-searchable PDF file to plain text file, you can download the free trial version of VeryPDF PDF to Text OCR Converter Command Line from following web page first,
