Editable PDFs data not recognized

Hello,

I’m having trouble with UiPath being unable to read an editable PDF filled with information. I’ve tried screen scraping, get text, and the anchor base funcionality.

Here are the PDF files in question:

Currently the workflow follows this structure:

  1. Open a PDF filled with an individual’s information
  2. Read the information filled by the individual in the Editable PDF
  3. Output the information read into different variables for later processing

Any idea on what’s wrong?
Thanks!

Hi gonmartins

What application do you use for opening the attached PDF files?

I’ve since managed to work past this constraint by navigating the file with tabs and selecting the data using the “copy selected text” action.

I’m using Adobe Reader.

Adobe Acrobat Reader has some Accessibility settings that need to be enabled, did you set them On?
