After updating Adobe Reader to 19.012.20034 (or any newer) Screen Scraping using Native method returns empty string instead of text. With older Adobe Reader version (like 19.010.20099) Native method works without any issues. We’ve observed that behaviour using various UiPath versions (2018.1.4 and 2018.4.6)
Steps to reproduce:
- Make sure that you have Adobe Reader in version older than 19.012.20034 and disabled “Run in AppContainer” option.
- Create workflow that will scrape text from PDF using Natvie method (before scraping open and close Preferences window, without this step scraping might not work).
- Update Adobe Reader to newest version (at least 19.012.20034).
- Run created workflow and compare results
