Automation Action: PDF to text using PDFPig

Custom Action Available From Library

Use the PDFPig library from uglytoad to convert a PDF document to plain text.

This may produce better results on some documents than the built in PDF extraction.

If you have a complex document that needs specialised formatting and flow extraction, you can use the PDFPig documentation on document layout analysis in order to create a specialised text extraction script for your document type.
