Aspose PDF Blank page detection

Hey all,

I used this document and the IsBlank() method (Page.IsBlank | Aspose.PDF for .NET API Reference) on this highest detention sensitivity (0.01).

Test8.pdf (138.1 KB)

It seems to detect this as a blank page when it should considered as non-blank.

How this PDF was created was by adding shapes to a document in Microsoft Word then saving as PDF. Does anyone know how to detect microsoft word added shapes or have a method to recognize the non-white color in this document?

Maybe there is a procedure for checking each pixel to whether it’s color is white?



Thanks for contacting support.

We have tested the scenario in our environment using following code snippet and noticed that the isBlank property was returning true - whereas the page was not blank.

Document pdfDocument = new Document(dataDir + "Test8.pdf");
bool isBlank = pdfDocument.Pages[1].IsBlank(0.01d);
