Remove Hidden Text and Images from PDF

Does aspose have any API which removes hidden text and images ?


Thank you for contacting support.

Would you please share source file and expected output document with us while mentioning how these requirements can be achieved with Adobe Acrobat because Aspose.PDF mimics it. We will investigate further to assist you accordingly.

I may not be able to share the samples, but I can refer to the article where Adobe Acrobat does this operation…


Go To the section: Find and remove hidden content


Thank you for elaborating the process.

Please note that forum attachments are accessible to thread owner and Aspose staff only, and are used for testing purposes. Kindly share a sample file with us so that we may log a feature request and address your requirements based on such sample file. We appreciate your cooperation in this regard.

Attached is the file that contains hidden text:

HiddenTextPDF.pdf (15.2 KB)

This is the file which could be an output after removing the hidden text.


Thank you for sharing requested data.

We are afraid expected output file did not attach. Can you please share it again via Google Drive, Dropbox etc. if it is bigger in size.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

ExpectedOutput.zip (160.4 KB)

This could be the expected output file where the hidden text under the rectangular box is removed.
Adobe has a feature to do that. But did not find any documentation for ASpose for the same features. Thanks.
