Extract Elevation Text

I was wondering if you think it would be possible to write a macro that could read/extract the text from an imported pdf (or convert the polylines the program extracts into text), more specifically the elevation text. This way it would be possible to then do spot elevations pretty quickly. Currently with most of the pdfs that I have access to if I do the "import vector info" command the text just gets converted to polylines instead of text that is readable by the spot elevation command. Or is this the type of command that would require more programming on Trimble's end?
