What kind of sorcery is that, mr. Gizzmo?

"Blood" is a badass name for a scientific journal, BTW. 😎

If you have Acrobat Pro, you can do the same thing by using its “Edit PDF” tool (only works on live type, not on anything that is an image only):

Maybe I misunderstood. I got the impression that Enfocus Pitstop Pro was able to identify typefaces from a rasterized original. If I have access to a PDF, even Affinity Publisher is going to tell me which fonts are used. 🤷‍♂️

Pitstop does not recognise rasterized text, but is a very powerful PDF preflighting and editing tool. For rasterized text Whatfontis is an escape but you get a number of possible hits, sometimes not very accurate.

So, you had access to a PDF? The original post in this thread had a picture attached.
