Replacing Text in PDF with PHP using Aspose.PDF REST API Changes Elements Background

I want to replace text in a PDF document. However some background elements in the resulting PDF will be changed as well.

This is how it looks in the original file

And this is the result

Is there something I can do to only replace the text and keep the background as is?
The API is wonderfull and exactly what we need. However, the result is currently not usable this way.

Thanks for hints or help.

I use the PHP API and code as seen in this post: Find and Replace Text in PDF with PHP Laravel Throws Error


We will appreciate it if you please share your sample PDF document with us. We will test the scenario and will share our findings with you.

Thanks Tilal,
you will find the document here: https://www.karriere-kick.de/wp-content/uploads/kk-template.pdf
The main replacements are on page 1 for the following placeholders

There will be additional placeholders at page 13. I’ve already included [PRICE_S] there.

Thanks a lot for your support.


Thanks for sharing the sample PDF documents. We have tested the scenario and noticed that text replacement changes the background as well. So we logged a ticket PDFCLOUD-2562 for further investigation and rectification. We will notify you as soon as we resolve the issue.

Sounds promising. Thank you.
