            itext 7 table of contents issues
            Asked 2022-Jan-19 at 19:40

            Following the pattern in this example https://kb.itextpdf.com/home/it7kb/examples/toc-as-first-page I implemented the table of contents (toc) within my own code. Everything works fine, with the following exception:

            • My toc has 3 pages and could grow

            • I can move the last two pages of pdf (2 pages of toc) to the top of the document but when I try to move the first page of the toc to the top I get a null exception

            Based on the pattern in this code: https://github.com/itext/i7ns-samples/blob/develop/itext/itext.samples/itext/samples/sandbox/stamper/ReorderPages.cs

            I created a new document and copied the content from the original into it. The table of content links still functioned as expected.

            external signature results in corrupted pdf after signing
            Asked 2021-Nov-28 at 17:04

            I am trying to sign a pdf document from a 3rd party signature provider. I send them the document hash, after creating the empty signature and they send a timestamp token (we agreed it would be a timestamp signature) and I add the signature back into the pdf. the api call to get the timestmp and crl and ocsp goes well, but once I generate the pdf with the signature, adobe says the signature is not valid and the error is:

            Error during signature verification.

            Signature contains incorrect, unrecognized, corrupted or suspicious data. Support Information: SigDict /Contents illegal data

            this is the current code:

            Your source link is malformed.

            Whether you use of doesn't matter here because the tag doesn't know what to do with the source your providing.

            To emded files from drive you have to specifically mention it by adding "preview" instead of "view" in the link.

            Correct source link:


            This is the source you provided:

            With the HTML below I am trying to publish a PDF file into the webpage. The error as in this post's title is what I see when inspecting the page. The PDF file isn't published. Is this the best way to publish PDF into a webpage? I'm more interested in implementing the solution involving the PDF object.

            I just created a mock version of what you are trying to do and it works just fine. Although the sample PDF I have linked will not appear in an SO snippet because because the frame into which the plugin is loading is sandboxed. If you open it in a live or local server or have another PDF to which you can use, then it will work fine.

            I would check the relative path to your PDFObject script because it seems like it is not getting read in to your HTML as a plugin, meaning the path is incorrect. You can always use the CDN which is a direct link to the plugin/script here:

            Getting a NONE output while converting integers to a list in python
            Asked 2021-Jul-12 at 09:32

            I am trying to convert number of integers to a list in python, from a pdf. These numbers are actually the page numbers of the pdf and I am getting multiple pdf's page numbers printed on my terminal.

            The program when run, outputs the page numbers of PDF on my terminal correctly, when i try to convert it to a list ( I actually want to convert the integer number to a list so that I can inject this list of integers in to my pandas dataframe.) it gives me a None output on my terminal. Here's my code for the same.

            list.append(x) does not return the list, it mutates it. Mutate it in a different line and then just print the list next to heyy to fix!

            Pretty sure you want to append inside the for loop, so it appends each item to the list

            Reading Hebrew PDF with iText 7 get Gibrish
            Asked 2021-Apr-16 at 15:35

            I am trying to read a Hebrew PDF, but I am getting Gibrish instead.

            I am using the code @mkl gave me a year ago when I had a similar problem, as described below, but unfortunately, it is not working.



            Answered 2021-Apr-16 at 15:35

            The cause of this issue are invalid ToUnicode CMaps for all the fonts in the PDF: These CMaps may be valid for other uses but in the context of ToUnicode CMaps the PDF specification clearly restricts the data which may occur in this kind of CMap.

            One can enable iText, though, to make sense out of this by a small patch.

            The problem

            The ToUnicode CMaps in the document are invalid in particular as they use begincidrange ... endcidrange sections for mapping the character codes instead of beginbfrange ... endbfrange and beginbfchar ... endbfchar sections as required here by the specification.

            By chance iText does process ~cidrange sections in ToUnicode CMaps just like ~bfrange sections. (Well, not really by chance but because the class for processing ToUnicode CMaps extends an abstract base class for processing arbitrary CMaps.)

            Unfortunately, though, ~cidrange ranges have an integer destination start value (e.g. <0003> <0003> 32) while ~bfrange ranges in ToUnicode CMaps must have hex string destination start values (e.g. <0000><005E><0020>). As a result parsing these ToUnicode CMaps with ~cidrange ranges in iText fails with an exception, leaving behind a map without entries. The result is that none of the character codes in the document can be mapped to anything sensible and all text is extracted as replacement characters ('�').

            A work-around

            An obvious approach to fix this is by enabling the code processing the ranges to also handle integer destination start values, not only hex string values.

            With that fix applied most of the characters can be extracted properly. You merely have to deal with the wrong order of RTL script text.

            (I tested only the Java version but the .Net version should work, too.)


            In the com.itextpdf.io.font.cmap.CMapToUnicode class (com.itextpdf.io artifact) the following method is called to add mappings derived from ranges:

            Blueimp jQuery-File-Upload basic plugin shows unwanted submit button in ASP.NET MVC view
            Asked 2021-Jan-26 at 12:38

            I have a task to edit one of our older companny asp.NET MVC app, where we uploading files using flash (uploadify) to this times. But now, we want to use Blueimp jQuery-File-Upload basic plugin.

            Everything works perfect, but there is problem with unwanted submit button, which is generated (I believe) from plugin script itself.

            Do you have any ideas, how to prevent genereting of this button?

            Screenshot from app:

            Blue area = span (class fileInputButton) which I use as a button for opening file browser window

            Green area = unwanted submit button, which is generated from blueimp script

            When I'm searching element on the page in browser, the result is that green area is #file-upload-button button type and come from fileupload input which is in partial cshtml view:

            You pass true to the $js parameter, which will not really add the checkbox to the PDF but which will include a JavaScript, which will create the field at opening time (by a viewer application that is able to execute JavaScript).

            Try to pass false or left the paremeter (false = default). The method signature is available here.

            How to merge all pdf files from a PDF Portfolio to a normal pdf file using C# iText7?
            Asked 2020-Aug-28 at 13:22

            I took this C# example and tried to get the attachments as a PdfDocument, but I couldn't figure out how to do it.

            In the end I would like to simply merge every pdf file contained in a portfolio into a single "normal" pdf file. Every non-pdf attachment should be ignored.


            (Okay, sorry for being too vague. By saying what I want to achieve, I simply wanted to make it easier for you guys to help me. I did not want to make you write the program for me.)

            So, here's part of the code from the linked example:

            To merge all pdf files from a PDF Portfolio to a normal pdf file you have to walk the name tree of EmbeddedFiles, retrieve the streams of all PDFs therein, and then merge all these PDFs.

            You can do this as follows for a portfolio loaded in a PdfDocument pdfDocument (Java version; the OP edited a port to C# into his question body):
