Hi

I have a use case where I need to select certain text from PDF which always remains in the same format. Can I use any Adobe tools to automate my task?

Note - The text contains tables, forms which are partially text and partially scanned images

Selection of text can't be automated. However, it is possible to automatically extract text from a certain are on the page and display it in a prompt window, or the JS Console. This will require quite an advanced, custom-made script to be developed, though.
