Property Value

Type: Boolean
true to do not extract hidden text; false otherwise. Default value: false.

Remarks

This property allows to skip text when:

  • Text is rendered in the mode that produces no visible output (like PdfTextRenderingMode.NeitherFillNorStroke).
  • Text is drawn outside of active clip region. This feature is not supported in the version for .NET Standard Library.

Note that there are other ways to hide text in PDF document. For example, text can be overlapped by other page objects (e.g. by image, form control or filled rectangle). Or text can be drawn with the same color as background (e.g. white text on white background).

SkipInvisibleText property does not allow to skip text in such cases. Extract and handle page objects manually to skip text hidden with such techniques. Look at "Pages and Navigation -> Extract text, paths and images" sample for more detail.
