I want to extract the text out of a PDF using iText5.0.5. The problem is when i extract text, all the text,including page numbers, figure titles, pae titles get extracted. I am completely new to the iText api. Could anyone please let me know if there is any method/interface in iText which could help extract ONLY the text content (or) atleast let me know how i could identify if the page numbers, page titles, figure titles also come under as page text?

Thanks in advance!
