Thanks for your inquiry.

As the issue has recently been logged in our issue tracking system, it is pending for review. As soon as we have some certain news on resolution progress of the issue we will let you know. Please spare us little time.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.


Thanks for your patience.

We have investigated the earlier logged issue and as per our findings, every ordinary character (not metacharacter) in a regular expression has their literal character meaning. Therefore pattern ‘blue\spanorama’ means ‘blue panorama’ but not ‘BLUE PANORAMA’ and not ‘Blue Panorama’. Please use ‘(?i)’ to turn on case-insensitive matching.

Please also take into account, we use ‘\r\n’ as newline in the extracted text (but it may depends on platform.). Therefore we recommend ‘(?i)blue\r\npanorama\b’ expression to find words separated by newline marker. Or ‘(?i)blue\s+panorama\b’ expression to find both plain and multi-line positioning of ‘blue panorama’ text.

Please consider the following code:

Document pdfDocument = new Document(myDir + "83---W-2031.pdf");
TextFragmentAbsorber textFragmentAbsorber = new TextFragmentAbsorber(@"(?i)blue\s+panorama\b");
TextSearchOptions textSearchOptions = new TextSearchOptions(true);
textFragmentAbsorber.TextSearchOptions = textSearchOptions;
foreach (TextFragment tf in textFragmentAbsorber.TextFragments)
