In one of our first white papers, we wrote about how to use LEADTOOLS OCR to modify and improve your Google Drive search. Today we’re publishing part two of that series and showing how to use the LEADTOOLS PDF SDK to improve Google Drive in a similar fashion.
The problem this white paper addresses is that Google Drive’s search features do not look at the keywords metadata within PDF files. Many people use these keywords as an important way to catalog and keep track of their documents, so the usefulness of that information gets lost once synced into your Google Drive.

Using LEADTOOLS PDF File Features to Enhance Google Drive Search
Cloud services such as Google Drive continue to grow in popularity each year as a safe, secure and convenient way to store and back up your documents, images, music and other files. For users with a large amount of data in the cloud, searching and finding your files again can become problematic. Most search features are limited in their scope, and only take advantage of the file name or, for file formats such as PDF, the text within the file itself. Therefore some level of customization or enhancement may be necessary to take full advantage of your Google Drive cloud storage. You can use the LEADTOOLS PDF SDK to read and edit the file metadata, and then update the file’s IndexableTextData property in Google Drive to enable custom keyword searching.
If you would like to download the full example project showing how to improve the effectiveness of your Google Drive search, you can get it from the Code Project article where we have also circulated this white paper.
