I want edit text in a PDF file, I m using Alambic API to edit the PDF but I cannot replace the text as I am not able to find any method in Alambic API for replace function.

My script is as follows.

MyPDF.Open Watch.GetJobFileName,False
Set MyPages = MyPDF.Pages
NumberOfPages = MyPDF.Pages.Count
for i = 0 to NumberOfPages - 1
MyPages.replace "ABC","XYZ"
Set MyPages = nothing
MyPDF.Save True

No tool included in PlanetPress Suite allows you to replace text inside a PDF. The best you can do is extract text, replacing whatever needs to be replaced, and then generate a new PDF from that data.
