Hello Audros,

We are working on such a comparison tool for our end user products, but that is still not ready. I am not sure what access would be provided to the same through the SDK at this moment. We will need to wait for the feature to be implemented by our devs and will then know more.

Regards,
Stefan

Hello Audros,

Well, you can get the position of all of the content items, thus you can get the position of the OCRed text content items if you require that.

Cheers,
Alex

I looked in the forum for a way to find the object OCRED text in the pdf after having applied the function of optical recognition of the caracter on a pdf,
but I could not find a track, the goal, in fact, is to program a simple comparison tool that detects the difference between two PDF files. Could you help us? Thank you

Hello Audros,

You will have to understand what exactly do you want to compare and write an algorithm. You can compare the rendered pages pixel by pixel, for example. Or you can compare all of the content items for positions/data. We won't do the coding and algorithm writing for you - we can only help with SDK related problems.

Cheers,
Alex
