Counting words - extracting text



Do you have any built-in function for counting the words in a pdf file? I am also interested in how do I get the text from a paragraph of a pdf file.




Build-in function for counting the words in a pdf file is not available now, But we will support it in one week.

Geting the text from a paragrgh are not planned in current release, We will plan to do it in next releases.


I am wondering that did you manage to insert the word counting function in the latest update. (I was looking for it but haven’t find)

If it is not inserted yet, which is the fastest way to count the words on a page (or the whole document)?

Extracting text would not work because:

1. An exception occurs:

An unhandled exception of type ‘System.ArgumentNullException’ occurred in mscorlib.dll

Additional information: Value cannot be null.

2. Seemingly it is possible to extract the text only in a file, not in the memory. It forces me to open, read and close the obtained file and IO operations are slow.


Dear translatemedia:

word counting will be available in next release at early August.
