I have code which removes text from a PDF. I can get to the PDEText objects by looping through the contents of the page retrieved from

PDPageAcquirePDEContent(CurrentPDPage, gExtensionID);

and my normal method of removal (or replacement if you will) works great.

However, i have found that some Text objects are contained within a PDEForm, and must be removed by looping through the contents of the PDEForm

pdeFormContent=PDEFormGetContent((PDEForm) pdeElement);

however, when i attempt to apply my normal methodologies for removing the text, it doesnt seem to remove it. All my variables contain the correct values and the code is identical to the code that removes the text when not in the Form object. Long story short, do i need to do some sort of notification to the PDEForm object that its contents have changed? I dont see a method to set the form content and im hitting my head against a wall, and help would be appreciated.
