Search rotated text inside PDF using Aspose.PDF for .NET - API is not finding rotated text

I have followed the example as noted here:

There is some text in the PDF that I’m working with that is rotated 90 degrees. If I search for the text in Adobe Reader it finds it, but when I try to use Aspose to find the text it doesn’t find it. I am able to find any text in the file that is oriented normal (not rotated). How do I go about finding the rotated text? I have tried looking for it with and without using regex and using the shortest word that I can. Is there something that I need to do to be able to find a fragment that has been rotated?


Would you kindly share your sample PDF document with us. We will test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.

Yes, I can, but I do not want it posted on the ticket for privacy reasons. Is there a way I can deliver it to you directly and it can be kept private?

Great, thank you. How do I check on the status of the issue in the tracking system? Is there a way I can see how it is progressing or when it may be fixed? We are planning a release using this functionality in the next few weeks and were hoping to have a solution for that if possible. Any idea on timing?
