In PrizmDoc, how can I find the coordinates of text on a page of my document?


I have a document with text on it. I want to find the coordinates of a particular word on it (so I can place annotations, redactions, etc.). How might this be accomplished?


To programmatically determine the location of text (for annotations, redactions, etc.), we can use the following GET request from the PrizmDoc Server API:

GET /PCCIS/V1/Document/q/{{PageNumberBegin}}-{{PageNumberEnd}}/Text

This GET request will give you the currently available text position metadata of the page, with the corresponding bounding boxes and coordinates (distance from the left/top edge, and width/height). You can then use these coordinates to place your annotations, redactions, etc.
