    I need to build a solution to export text from PDF including their X,Y cordinates. 

    Could it be done with PDFViewer or other Telerik product?

    Best regards,

    Hi André,

    You can traverse the content of a PDF document and check only the elements containing text using the PdfProcessing library. What you would need to do is to import the document and then iterate through all the Content of each RadFixedPage:
    foreach (var page in this.pdfDocument.Pages)
        foreach (var item in page.Content)
            var textFragment = item as Telerik.Windows.Documents.Fixed.Model.Text.TextFragment;
            if (textFragment != null)
                var position = textFragment.Position;

    Hope this is helpful.
