TextFragmentAbsorber using Regular Expression not spanning multiple pages

I’m trying to extract text out of PDF based on regular expression and it seems to be working for most part but I have encountered a strange behavior.

If the text that I’m looking for spans across multiple pages does TextFragmentAbsorber look at this as continuous text? If looks like it stops at the end of page 1 even though I indicated all pages. In fact it picked up text from bottom of first page that meets my regular expression and then paragraph from top of the first page all in single TextFragment.

Below is the section of the code for your reference and I’ve attached the complete CS code and pdf file being used to test this. I was expecting text from page 3 to be captured as well since I would like to incorporate the “Recipe Tip” into my regular expression.


//Create TextAbsorber object to extract text

TextFragmentAbsorber textFragmentAbsorberDirections = new TextFragmentAbsorber(“Directions(\r\n|\r|\n)[0-9a-zA-Z(\r\n|\r|\n)°@#$%&+\-_(),+’:;?.,!\[\]\s\/ è]”);

//Set text search option to specify regular expression usage

TextSearchOptions textSearchOptionsDirections = new TextSearchOptions(true);

textFragmentAbsorberDirections.TextSearchOptions = textSearchOptionsDirections;

//Accept the absorber for all the pages


//Get the extracted text from first fragment

Console.WriteLine("{0}", textFragmentAbsorberDirections.TextFragments[1].Text);
