Unable to track the specific element in PDF file using Ranorex

Post by Sandeep1632 » Mon May 03, 2021 1:32 pm

Hi,

We have a requirement to validate the PDF file and verify if the required data is populated in PDF or not.
When we tried tracking the specific element/text in PDF observed that it is tracking the complete file but not drilling down to specific element.

Ranorex version:8.2

Attached is the snapshot from ranorex and screenshot of the PDF file.

Thanks & Regards,
Sandeep

Hi,

I'm afraid, Ranorex 8.2 is way too old and no longer supported. At next, snapshot is unfortunately not helpful in this particular case. Please upload a sample PDF for review. Also, make sure there is enabled Accessibility in given PDF. Typically, elements in PDF are not traceable because of not enabled accessibility.

Hi,

I am using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, by enabling accessibility you mean setup accessibility option ?
Please find the screenshot below for reference and let me know if my understanding is wrong.

Hi,

No, what I mean is a document accessibility, as shown here:
