Hello. Our customer would like to send us PDF files that contain white text on page 1 to drive the workflow. I would like to have PP7 Suite read the white text and capture it in a variable so I can then use that info further upstream in the process. Could someone give me a pointer on how to accomplish getting the value of the white text into a variable? Thank you!

You would not need PlanetPress Desing tool to extract that value. You can do it by the Workflow data selector and assign it to a Worklfow variable.

Basically, add a "Set Job Infos and Variables" plugin. In the "value" field, right-click and select "Get data selection".

Then get your PDF and select the region where the white text is and voila!.
