            pdfminer: extract only text according to font size
            Asked 2022-Mar-30 at 07:38

            I only want to extract text that has font size 9.800000000000068 and 10.000000000000057 from my pdf files. The code below returns a list of the font size of each text block and its characters for one pdf file.



            Answered 2022-Mar-30 at 07:38

            Pdfminer is the wrong tool for that.

            Use pdfplumber (which uses pdfminer under the hood) instead https://github.com/jsvine/pdfplumber, because it has utility functions for filtering out objects (eg. based on font size as you're trying to do), whereas pdfminer is primarily for getting all text.

            Detecting vertical text elements (not just text content) with pdfminer.six

            Answered 2022-Feb-17 at 17:00

            It took me awhile to figure this out, but the key was realizing that text elements can be children of LTImage objects. I didn't realize that and didn't realize that I needed to recursively iterate over the children of LTImage objects to find everything.

            Pdf miner how to extract images
            Asked 2022-Feb-14 at 10:25

            I'm trying to extract images from a PDF file using pdfminer.six

            There doesn't seem to be any documentation about how to do this with Python.

            This is what I have so far:



            Answered 2021-Aug-23 at 14:47

            I have never used pdfminer, however I found this code and this document from Denis Papathanasiou explaining it, which might be of some help to figure this out, as pdfminer's documentation is not very exhaustive. The document is from an outdated version, but the code was recently updated.

            If you are not required to use pdfminer, there are alternatives which might be easier such as PyMuPDF found in this answer which extracts all images in the PDF as PNG.

            I am trying to generate summary of long PDF. So, what I did, first I converted my pdf to text using pdfminer.six library. Next, I used 2 functions which were provided in a discuss here.

            The code:



            Answered 2021-Jul-16 at 04:55

            The issue here is the BartModel line. Switch this for a BartForConditionalGeneration class and the problem will be solved. In essence the generation utilities assume that it is a model that can be used for language generation, and in this case the BartModel is just the base without the LM head.

            Extract fixed size and position table from pdf files in Python
            Asked 2021-Apr-13 at 12:38

            Say I have many similar pdf files as the one from here:

            I woudld like to extract the following table and save as excel file:

            I'm able to do extract table and save excel file manually with package excalibur.

            After installing Excalibur with pip3, I initialize the metadata database using:

            $ excalibur initdb

            And then start the webserver using:

            $ excalibur webserver

            Then go to http://localhost:5000 and start extracting tabular data from PDFs.

            I wonder if it's possible to automatically do that with python script for multiple pdf files with packages such as excalibur-py, camelot, pdfminer, etc, since the size and position of table are fixed for same city's reports.

            You may download other report files from this link.

            Many thanks at advance.

            Pdfminer, can not read LTText after pyinstaller
            Asked 2021-Feb-02 at 03:54

            I make an app that can read PDF using pdfminer.

            Application is OK when development.
            After that, I package to .exe file using pyinstaller. But read result is not the same with it in development.
            In detail, it can not read **LTText LTTextBoxHorizontal so I can not get extracted text.
            Any one know about this issue, please help me.

            Pyinstaller lib owner just answered me. It fixed by adding --additional-hooks-dir.

            Please see here for detail.

            Maybe they will fix in pyinstaller to support pdfminer also in next release.

            You have to install some Conda, you can use Miniconda to get the bare minimum essentials. The Python interpreter needed is defined in your YAML file and will be installed as required. Miniconda already includes a barebones Python interpreter for its own functionality.

            How can I extract text fragments from PDF with their coordinates in Python?

            Given a digitally created PDF file, I would like to extract the text with the coordinates. A bounding box would be awesome, but an anchor + font / font size would work as well.
