Methods may enable a user to create a plurality of horizontal lines and a plurality of vertical lines on the document. The horizontal and vertical lines may create rows and columns. Methods may create an editable document upon receipt of at least one row and at least one column on the document.

The editable document may correspond to the rows and columns within the created horizontal and vertical lines. Methods may create a horizontal line or vertical line at a location of a cursor when a corresponding click is received. Some examples of such processes may be financial statement analytics, payroll payments processing and non-tabular data conversions for account settings.

The processes may require manipulating data included on the PDF documents. For the purposes of this application, PDF documents are typically substantially unable to be manipulated.

Conventionally, the data was manually read from the PDF documents and re-entered into a computer application. The re-entry process is cumbersome as well as error-prone.

Therefore, a generic renderable text extraction tool may be desirable. Preferably, the tool may enable extraction of text from an editable PDF document. It may also be desirable for the tool to export the extracted text into a format specified by a user.

The apparatus may include a user interface. For the purposes of this application, rendering may be understood to mean utilizing a method that converts a PDF document into a DPI image. The original PDF document may be stored for later use. Therefore, AWT connects with the operating system layer.

The user interface may add the DPI image to a panel. Therefore, it may be understood that a JPanel may reside in a component. In some instances, a top-level Swing container may be used as a component. A top-level Swing container may include a list of components. The components may include a root pane. The root pane may include a layered pane, a content pane and a glass pane. The layered pane may be utilized to position the contents of the root pane.

The content pane may include the root pane's visible components. The glass pane may be hidden initially. If made visible, the glass pane may act like a sheet of glass over the other parts of the root pane. The glass pane may be used to catch events or paint over an area of the root pane that already contains components.

For example, one can display an image over multiple components using the glass pane. The user interface may insert a pane into the component. The pane may be positioned on top of the DPI image. The pane may have a transparent quality. The pane may be a glass pane or any other suitable pane or software structure. The user interface may support the use of a line insertion tool. The line insertion tool may enable a user to place one or more horizontal lines on the pane.

The line insertion tool may also enable a user to place one or more vertical lines on the pane. The line insertion tool may include a toggle feature that enables a user to switch between horizontal line creation and vertical line creation. The user interface may receive horizontal and vertical lines from the user. In some embodiments, upon receipt of at least two horizontal lines and at least two vertical lines from the user, the user interface may calculate a plurality of intersection points using a line intersection algorithm.

The intersection points may outline a plurality of rectangular areas. The user interface may create a plurality of templates based on the rectangular areas. The apparatus may also include a text extraction parser. The text extraction parser may be configured to extract text from a plurality of portions of the editable PDF document corresponding to the templates.

The text extraction parser may be configured to transform the extracted text into renderable text. The text extraction parser may also be configured to export the renderable text, utilizing the templates for text structure, into a manipulate-able document. The objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent upon consideration of the following detailed description, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, in which like reference characters refer to like parts throughout, and in which:.

The rendering may utilize an image, a font a glyph or any other suitable software structures. The DPI image may be used in any other suitable region.

The method may also include adding the DPI image to a panel. The panel may be any suitable panel or software structure. The panel may reside in a component. The component may be any suitable component or software structure. The method may also include displaying the DPI image within the component on a screen. The screen may be the screen of a personal computer, work computer, tablet, smartphone, and any other suitable computing device.

The method may also include inserting a pane into the component on top of the DPI image. The pane may have transparent quality. The insertion may occur upon displaying the DPI image on the screen. The method may also include using a line insertion tool. The line insertion tool may be associated with a mouse. In certain embodiments, a user may toggle between creation of horizontal lines and creation of vertical lines by right clicking on the mouse.

In some embodiments, right clicking the mouse may open a mini menu. The menu may include two options: vertical and horizontal. The user may choose the vertical option, create vertical lines, and then choose the horizontal option, and then create horizontal lines, or vice versa. In some embodiments, upon receipt of at least two horizontal lines and at least two vertical lines from the user, the method may include calculating, using a line intersection algorithm, a plurality of intersection points of the horizontal and vertical lines.

The plurality of intersection points may outline a plurality of rectangular areas. In these embodiments, if a user initially defines a horizontal line, he may create a row utilizing the one horizontal line. If a user initially defines a vertical line, he may be required to define at least one additional vertical line two total vertical lines and at least one horizontal line to create one row and one column.

The method may also include creating a plurality of templates based on the plurality of rectangular areas. The template object may be based on the rectangular areas. A template may include data that enables a system to properly invoke the rectangular areas. Templates may also include extrapolating a portion of the defined rectangular areas from one portion of a page and utilizing the rectangular areas for a different portion of the page. The method may also include extracting text from a plurality of portions of the editable PDF document corresponding to the templates.

The method may also include transforming the extracted text into renderable text. The method may also include exporting, utilizing the templates for text structure, the renderable text into a manipulate-able document.

The text structure may include columns, rows, paragraphs or any other suitable text structure. The metadata may be the rectangular area data or the template data. The method may include saving the compressed metadata in a cache memory. The cache memory may an offline cache memory.

Saving the compressed metadata in an offline cache memory may ensure optimal memory usage of the underlying computer system.

This may be because the text extraction process may be CPU-intensive. Accessing the cache memory, as opposed to accessing the hard drive, during the text extraction process may increase speed and performance of the system. The method may also include generating, utilizing a second set of multiple threads, a preview corresponding to the renderable text.

The preview may include rows and columns which may be defined by the horizontal and vertical lines. Illustrative embodiments of apparatus and methods in accordance with the principles of the invention will now be described with reference to the accompanying drawings, which form a part hereof. It is to be understood that other embodiments may be utilized and structural, functional and procedural modifications may be made without departing from the scope and spirit of the present invention.

PDF document may be transmitted to reader Reader may accept PDF document User interface may display PDF document User interface may also enable a user to define horizontal and vertical coordinates of data included on PDF document Parser may export the renderable text into a manipulate-able document format, for e.

User interface may include PDF page and glass panel Step 1 may show placing glass panel on top of PDF page User interface may transmit the user-defined coordinates in addition to the PDF document to itext engine , as shown at step 3. Itext Engine may include parser Step 4 shows itext engine , utilizing multiple threads, may cache the zipped metadata for each page of the PDF, together with the text content, offline, during processing of the document.

Caching the metadata offline may ensure optimal memory usage of itext engine during the text extraction process. Step 5 shows itext engine , utilizing multiple threads, generating a preview of a renderable document to be generated, for e.

In some embodiments, the process may not require human intervention. In these embodiments, the system may define the vertical and horizontal lines based on whitespace or any other suitable indicator.

Grant Sheridan Robertson's personal blog. Ideas, thoughts, and various things I would like to share with the world. Notice, I am not saying it is "The" solution. Using this technique, it is possible to obtain a searchable and text-select-able document while preserving the original image of the scanned document, if desired. It also makes for some extraneously large files. Fortunately we don't have to leave our files in this format.
