Greetings Torsten. 

I use a transparent terminal over the PDF and then screenshot it!

This is, as you would expect, an ultralight and ultrafast solution. 

In fact, I use mupdf to open the PDF, then open the venerable SC spreadsheet calculator in a transparent terminal over it. Once ‘filled’, I just take a screenshot! Then use Imagemagick to convert it.

But, you would get the idea that many other possibilities open this way ;)

(I am not a programmer but an Intensive care specialist doctor in Australia. I am a heavy user of Linux, emacs and orgmode.) 

I sincerely hope this contribution as a non programmer helps you and others.

Please do publish this in the mailing list if you think it is beneficial. 

Cheers,
Balaji
