Does PDF.ConvertToText support PDFs which have protections to prevent text being "Copy and pasted"
I have a requirement to validate the contents of an invoice PDF. The PDF has a protection mechanism to prevent the contents from being copy and pasted (the contents come out as "garbled" text). This means I can't use libraries like Apache PDFBox (tried this with TestComplete, and the contents come out "garbled").
I wanted to know if anyone can confirm if TestComplete's PDF.ConvertToText method would support this type of PDF,, since it uses OCR to extract the text. My organization has a secured network, and port 443 is blocked, the process for me to get the port opened is quite lengthy with numerous approvals. I would hate to go through the process to find out the the functionality wouldn't be able to extract the text from my PDF.
