    @Arghya Bhattacharyya​ - Even I saw some post that blue prism has released a VBO for PDF with iTEXTSHARP which can read PDF and handle other operations, however I was not able to find the same.

    1. The LinkedIn post was misleading because it isn't Blue Prism that made the asset. I'm sure it'll still work, but it's a third party asset that will, I assume, eventually be available on the Digital Exchange.

    2. There is at least 1 asset already available on the DX. I haven't tried it myself because I made my own object that uses PDFSharp and other libraries. But anyway, here's the one you could try: https://digitalexchange.blueprism.com/dx/entry/9648/solution/pdf-management

    3. Invoke had an asset available that used iTextSharp, but the link to Invoke's source page seems to be broken. But that asset on the DX is here: https://digitalexchange.blueprism.com/dx/entry/4185/solution/invoke---itextsharp

    @Dave Morris ​- Thanks a lot for your response, yes I believe the one mentioned on post is not BP owned and I am not even sure where is it located.

    For DX one, its just for splitting and merging the PDF and yes Invoke link is broken. Looks like we will need custom solutions till there is a reusable object from BP to handle commonly performed PDF operations
