Features

Features

If you cannot copy a text directly from a PDF file by selecting the text and Right Click - Copy, then that may be due to any kind of certificate-based encryption. This activity helps to decrypt the PDF file and makes the file suitable to copy content directly. It is useful for Invoice Processing. In some scenarios ABBYY Standalone Engine will fail to process encrypted files. In this case you can use this activity to decrypt the file and proceed further.
