Text extraction doesn't seem to work, what's happening?

We're sorry that it didn't work out for you on your first try. The most likely explanation why the text extraction wouldn't work on your PDF is that it doesn't contain text. The PDF Toolkit program is not an OCR program (OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition), and cannot convert images into text. It can only extract text from PDF if text is present as text, and not within bitmap images. To fulfill your need, you can find many OCR programs on the Mac App Store, but PDF Toolkit is not one of them, sorry!
