What type of PDF file is machine readable?
Thanks for A2A!A little bit of historyPDF is the file format that was initially designed for printing specifically. It was adopted quickly worldwide as a way to store documents with original layout and 100% original look and colors preserved.How it is possible? It is possible because PDF is a self contained format and it includes all the fonts, images, vectors inside. So you don’t have to worry about fonts installed.If you worked with Microsoft Word or other rich text editors 10 years ago than you may remember that it was very common to have tables broken, text malformed, font replaced when original document is transfered from original computer to another computer.Criteria for machine readabilityMachine Readable document usually means that this document meets the following requirements:You are able to search for text inside this document: you may open this document and search the original text without transformations or conversion of the original document,You are able to copy a structured text, images, document information. If you can copy structured information easily then machines can do this as well.It is not protected by password preventing from opening the document And you may view it using pdf viewer application. There are dozens of free and commerical software apps almost for all platforms, including browsers like Chromium, Google Chrome, Firefox and many others.Usually if you want to do a quick test then you may just check for the criteria #1: open PDF file and try to search text inside it, try to copy and paste text from it. If you are not able to do this then most likely your PDF file is actually just a set of scanned images. You may turn add searchable text to it using free tools like this.For the improved machine readability there are also few special sub-formats, for example, German ZuGFeRD (the acronym for “Zentraler User Guide Forum elektronische Rechnung Deutschland” which translates as “Central User Guide Forum electronic Invoice Germany”) that is basically a PDF file for viewing and printing but it allso includes XML file attachment. This XML file includes original data from this invoiceso applications that support this format can take the included XML file with all the data instead of reading data from PDF.Even if you have a machine readable PDf file, sometimes tables and structured data do not appear when just copied. You may solve this issue:Manually copy the data and re-create an original structure in a spreadsheet or in new editable document,Extract text using special tool that relies on AI to re-create an original visual structure exist like free ByteScout PDF Multitool,Use free online service like PDF.co that of extracting data from invoices, statements, pdf documents with tables.

What is the mechanism of creating PDF? How can I create (or invent) a new document type like PDF?
For PDF specifically, you would read the PDF Standard (ISO 32000–1:2008) which tells you what the structure and syntax of a PDF looks like. Then you would write the code that outputs your data into that structure/syntax. And if you also needed to read it back in, then you’d write a parser that would read the structure/syntax and turn it back into your internal representation.As to creating your own format - there isn’t really any reason to do that in 2017. Either use an existing format that meets your need or use a syntax such as JSON or XML and then create your own grammar for it.
