Find and remove empty pages from PDF

Find and remove empty pages from PDF

The suggested workflow for finding and deleting empty pages (where empty page meanse a page without a text):

  1. Call pdf/info endpoint to find number of pages in the document
  2. Use /pdf/convert/to/text-simple for every page and check if returned text is empty or not
  3. If page is empty then use /pdf/edit/delete-pages endpoint to delete this page (see https://apidocs.pdf.co/33-1-pdf-delete-pages for more details).
  4. Or use /pdf/split endpoint to split PDF to exclude given pages and then pdf/merge to merge into a new PDF.

If you use Zapier, Integromat/Make or similar plugin, you can use Custom API Call module to call any endpoint from PDF.co.
