TextAbsorber returning garbage data

Hi,

I am using TextAbsorber to read text from pdf’s. This is working well for most pdf’s. But there are some files where I can see the text when I view the pdf, but TextAbsorber is returning garbage such as “&200(5&,$/,1685$1&($33/,&$7,2”

Has anyone ran into this and knows what could be causing this? Is there a workaround?

Can anyone tell me the status of this ticket? I don’t see it in any of the release notes. I too am experiencing the same issue using AsposePDF v20.5.0

Thanks,
