    Coldfusion PDF to text using cfpdf - Formatting issue




      We have a requirement to extract the content of an uploaded PDF and then show it in a text area with the same formatting. Our application runs on CF10.


      We used cfpdf however  the extracted text is a single paragraph with No formatting .


      Is there any way in coldfusion to read pdf as text retaining the source formatting ( 100% accuracy not expected) .




      1. We tried itext and it works very well however it comes with a licensing cost which I dont want to spend as I'm only going to use this single feature from the budle that itext is providing.

      2. Tried PDFbox but the formatting is not retained.
