Searching for text in a pdf...

TecNik:
Hi there,

Does anyone know if it's possible to search for text, in a pdf, that has certain attributes i.e. Bold, Green, Font etc. using either Applescript or Acrobat Javascript?

Thanks,

Nick

rayl:
Javascript  should work. Look at Evermap.com for good links, scripts and tools that might be useful to get started.

TecNik:
Thanks for the reply and for the link.

It's one I'd already found thorugh searches on this topic.

Thanks again,

Nick

What are you wanting to do with this info if you find it. Its just that you may be able to do this with preflight droplet. Are you looking for actual bold font or Faux bolding etc?

TecNik:
I was hoping to write something for creating bookmarks from certain text on the page e.g. sub-headings etc.

I have some javascript for creating a bookmark for each page but not for subheadings on each page.
Whilst searching I'd also found a plugin for Acrobat, just wondered if I could do something with Applescript.

Regards,

Nick
