Laguna Niguel, CA (PRWEB) - ActivePDF, the leading provider of PDF automation technologies and smart digital transformation solutions, recently released Xtractor 8.1.0, a .NET API for searching and extracting text and images from PDF files. Formerly available within a bundled package, Xtractor is now accessible as a stand-alone developer tool, designed for high-volume PDF data extraction and digital transformation automation

Xtractor 8.1.0 enables users to easily specify criteria such as words, invoice data, image formats, location of interest, and other pieces of data through regular expressions like social security numbers, phone numbers, and more. Once the PDF data is extracted, the content immediately becomes available for automation, editing, indexing, and other digital transformation needs. Developers and IT professionals in the fields of healthcare, finance, insurance, property management and other industries turn to Xtractor for all their high-volume data extraction needs when OCR data capture is not required or part of the business process.

Key features and benefits of Xtractor 8.1.0:

  • Classification and Indexing: Quickly and easily automate key information for extraction. This feature provides an easy solution for categorizing or indexing documents for archiving, classification, and more.
  • Extract and Save: Xtractor enables you to save all extracted text to a selected memory stream. Once saved, simply assign the saved data to a specified file name by targeting all images, specified pages, or placement coordinates.

  • Extraction Options: Besides defining data parameters for capture with regular expressions, users can locate and extract a variety of data including invisible text or metadata for PDF indexing and archiving. You can also locate and extract image files such as JPG, TIFF, PNG, or BMP with this .NET API.
