pdfSetTextReadingOrderMode

Set text extraction mode to "reading order".
void pdfSetTextReadingOrderMode(int readingOrder)
If readingOrder is non-zero, sets the text extraction mode to "reading order". Each page will be processed to "undo" physical layout (columns, hyphenation, etc.), generating text in reading order.

Only one mode, from pdfSetTextReadingOrderMode, pdfSetTextPhysicalLayoutMode, pdfSetTextTableLayoutMode, pdfSetTextLinePrinterMode, or pdfSetTextRawMode can be selected.

This setting is global - it applies to all PDF handles.
