When users search for files and click a PDF file to preview the file contents, the message "You do not have permission to extract text" is displayed in the Input Text Preview tab.
The message "You do not have permission to extract text" comes from the PDF processor and means that the PDF file has security features to prevent text extraction. Some PDF publishers do this to prevent people from re-using text from PDF files.
When attempting to extract text from a PDF file, this action is often disallowed.
Resolving the Problem
Ask the publisher of the PDF to send you a version of the file with security settings that allow text extraction.
