Dear friends,

I want to extract text from pdf with bold and italics identifiction. for example bold letters need t be extracted like this.<b>TEST</b> and italics must be enclosed like <i> test </i>
Currently i am using texttopdf.exe to extract text..the accuracy was good.but not able to identify bold italics.

any one have another idea or the same pdftoexe having the feature?

Thanks in Advance

A link to the tool might be useful - the only texttopdf I know of converts text to pdf not the other way around.
And I would remove the VB6 tag from your question - it's not relevant?

Spotted this comment by accident - if you want to respond to a comment use the "Reply" link so that the poster is notified.
Your link refers to "pdftotext.exe", not "texttopdf.exe" ... I will accept that "pdftotext.exe" will actually convert a pdf to text (!)
As that is opensource is it worth trying to communicate with the author, or adapting the code yourself?
