  • Hi. Thank you for this plugin. We really enjoy it

    We are using the smart service "Convert PDF to Image", and the function "Get PDF Text". Both of these, and probably the same for every smart service+function in this plugin, have the risk of throwing an exception when provided with invalid PDFs. I.e. when you have a PDF that is valid to view in documentviewer, but have corrupt metadata. 

    We are using it on arbitrary PDFs and we have a small percentage of PDFs failing to progress through the process. It is currently not possible to perform exception handling in a process model, so it would be nice to see a version of this plugin where exceptions are caught and returned through output parameters.
