How to remove a specific PDF annotation or comment in Node.JS

Node.JS users rejoice! Your PDF annotation-related problems are about to become a distant memory.

Let’s install the client we are using first.

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-convert-api-client": "^2.1.6"

Next we are going to write up the code for calling editPdfRemoveAnnotationItem. If you look at the following example setup, you will see how we instantiate our API first using a key, then proceed to call the above function using that instance.

var CloudmersiveConvertApiClient = require('cloudmersive-convert-api-client');var defaultClient = CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.ApiClient.instance;// Configure API key authorization: Apikeyvar Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';// Uncomment the following line to set a prefix for the API key, e.g. "Token" (defaults to null)//Apikey.apiKeyPrefix = 'Token';var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.EditPdfApi();var inputFile = "/path/to/file"; // File | Input file to perform the operation on.var annotationIndex = 56; // Number | The 0-based index of the annotation in the documentvar callback = function(error, data, response) {if (error) {console.error(error);} else {console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);}};apiInstance.editPdfRemoveAnnotationItem(inputFile, annotationIndex, callback);

Boom! Already done! The rest of this library includes a great deal of other handy functions for working with PDFs (and other document formats), such as splitting pages, merging, and rasterization.

There’s an API for that. Cloudmersive is a leader in Highly Scalable Cloud APIs.
