Lesson 10 Practice 1 Can't find individual elements from pdf


#1

This lesson is to retrieve elements from a pdf document.

First I attach window to the Acrobat Reader PC then Anchor Base and Find Element, the walkthrough implies the find element should be able to select the date label from the pdf document but I only seem to be able to activate the entire document rather than individual elements within the document.

Maybe its the pdf viewer I’m using (Acrobat Reader DC) which is a free download maybe it doesn’t grant access to individual elements within a pdf. I don’t know is anyone aware the requirements for the viewer for pdf scraping to work.
