Extract text from pdf with columns

Hi Everyone


I'm looking for a connector, which one can extract the whole text from a pdf. i can't use the most connectors, cause my template is a newspaperwith columns and the most give me the text from left to right over all columns.


the newspaper are different and the best result ill found was the pad.


the best would be, if i could split at the same time or later these text into columns. but this is nice to have.

thx for your help.

Hi @MarcelLehmann 


Thank you for posting.


According to your description, you would like to extra content from PDF file. If I misunderstood, please kindly let me know.


Unfortunately, there is no related connector existing in O365. I’m afraid you’d better try 3rd party connectors.


I found some connectors which may be suitable for your scenario.


Integrable PDF



Adobe PDF Tools



Aquaforest PDF



Muhimbi PDF



As you can see, they all belong to 3rd party, we have test limitation as they are in charge. Please check our official documents for detailed information.


Hope the content above may help you.
