Operation PDF.ExtractText (PDF: Extract Text)

Description

Extracts raw text from a PDF. If the PDF is encrypted, a password is required. pdfxpath is the xpath of the blob (default to file:content). The extracted text is set in the targetxpath property of the input document, which is saved if save is true. If patterntofind is not provided, extracts all the text it can, else it extracts only the line where the pattern is found. If patterntofind is provided and removepatternfromresult is true, the line is returned without the pattern.
