This option has now been added to ThinkAutomation V5. The update will be release in the next few days (build 775).
In the mean time you can use the Convert Document To Text action inside an Automation. This will convert any PDF, Word, Richtext, HTML document or attachment to plain text and return the text to a variable - which you can then use with the Extract Field action to parse out data.

Did this ever get released? Is there a help document on it?

Yes. The Message Source general properties help section:
The Append PDF, Word & Text Attachments To Body For Parsing option will extract text from incoming PDF attachments and append the text to the body for parsing.
You can also use the Convert Document To Text action within an Automation to extract text from PDFs (including PDF attachments), and assign the extracted text to a %variable% which you can then extract from. This action gives more control over how the text is extracted.
