PDF Requirements

I wanted to understand if the Aspose tool would meet the requirements of our team. I have attached them to this post. If anyone could help provide this information it would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Tyler,

Thanks for contacting support.

I have gone through your requirements list and specified below are details regarding these requirements.


Select multipile file types and convert to single PDF
We have separate API for specific file formats, so please try using Aspose.Words if you need to How to Convert a Document to PDF format. Please try using Aspose.Cells, if your requirement is for Converting Excel to PDF Files. Aspose.Slides can be used when requirement is for Converting Presentation to PDF. Once the PDF files are created, you may try using Aspose.Pdf for .NET to Concatenate PDF Files and generate single resultant file.

Print files/items specific to selected view
You can use Aspose.Pdf for .NET to print PDF documents and specify print settings during the process. For more information, please visit Working with PDF printing (Facades)


Print Infotpath form and Infopath customized list
I am afraid we do not have any API for InfoPath file format manipulation but we started working on converting InfoPath files to PDF format but later on due to technical difficulties, this feature was not implemented.


Print Infopath form/list item with attachments
I am afraid this feature is not supported by Aspose.Pdf for .NET.


Print embedded images within Infopath form
Printing of InfoPath files is not supported.


Printing from SharePoint instead of client
You may consider using Aspose.Pdf for .NET printing feature in SharePoint workflow.


OCR functionality to create searchable PDFs
In order to convert non-searchable PDF file (image PDF to Searchable PDF file), you need to first convert PDF pages to Image format and then perform OCR on converted images. Please visit the following link for required information on How to Convert an Image to PDF and in order to convert image PDF to searchable PDF file, please note that following logic recognizes text from pdf images. For recognition, you may use outer OCR supports HOCR standard(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HOCR).

I have used free Google tesseract OCR(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesseract_(software)). Please install it on your computer from http://code.google.com/p/tesseract-ocr/downloads/list and after that you will have tesseract.exe console application.

Below you can see usage example:


private string CallBackGetHocr(System.Drawing.Image img)<o:p></o:p>


string dir = @“c:\PdfTest”;<o:p></o:p>

img.Save(dir + “test.jpg”);<o:p></o:p>

ProcessStartInfo info = new ProcessStartInfo(@“tesseract”);<o:p></o:p>

info.WindowStyle= ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;<o:p></o:p>

info.Arguments = @“c:\pdftest\test.jpg c:\pdftest\out hocr”;<o:p></o:p>

Process p = new Process();<o:p></o:p>

p.StartInfo = info;<o:p></o:p>



StreamReader streamReader = new StreamReader(@“c:\pdftest\out.html”);<o:p></o:p>

string text = streamReader.ReadToEnd();<o:p></o:p>


return text;<o:p></o:p>


public void Main<o:p></o:p>


Document doc = new Document(“Input.pdf”);<o:p></o:p>
