Hi Everyone,

I am trying to highlight text inside existing PDF file this script, but it doesn't work.

I tried many options for annotation that i read in pdf reference 1.7 but none works.
Maybe there is something wrong with my script, idk.

 

Appreciated any clue/ help.

So, no Adobe apps at all. You might check with GhostScript support whether it is supposed to do what you are trying to achieve, and support for the viewer as to whether it is supposed to display what you are trying to add.

That's a fragment of PostScript but what are you doing with it, and which Adobe app and version is processing it? What is the result you expect, and the result you get?
