Read pdf file text content via aspose-pdf

Guys,
I am evaluating the aspose-pdf, and try to extract the pdf contents row by row for raw text, or row by row, column by column for tables in PDF files.
Just want to confirm if this is supported by aspose-pdf now?
If yes, is TableSorter the correct appoach to do that? If I do not have a trial license, will the visit method report null point exception?
if no, are there any plan to support that?

appreciate
Tony

Thanks for contacting support.

You may surely read tables inside PDF documents using Aspose.PDF API. However, the table data can be extracted row by row as it is data using same way i.e. row by row. Moreover, if you are processing PDF documents without using valid license, you may face some limitations like you will not be able to extract more than four elements of any collection.

This does not seem like limitation of the API but an issue and to investigate the issue we may need sample PDF document. Would you please share sample PDF document with us so that we can test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.

See the pdf I attached in another discussing loop:
