physicalLayoutMode

Set text extraction mode to "physical layout".
[read/write property] physicalLayoutMode([out, retval] VARIANT_BOOL *physLayout) physicalLayoutMode([in] VARIANT_BOOL physLayout)
Setting this property to true sets the text extraction mode to "physical layout". XpdfText will maintain, as much as possible, the original text layout, including columns, hyphenation, etc.

Only one mode, from readingOrderMode, physicalLayoutMode, tableLayoutMode, linePrinterMode, or rawMode can be selected.

VB6:
pdf.physicalLayoutMode = True
readingOrderMode
tableLayoutMode
linePrinterMode
rawMode
