My company has 1000s of PDFs that we deliver to customers with search capabilities across all documents. We have created the catalog index for these documents, and in the past, we used a plugin called Options to batch set the Search Index path in Document Properties. This was a lot easier and less time consuming than opening every single PDF and manually inputting the path. Before options, it took me well more than a day to do this to every document we deliver. The plugin reduced my time to less than an hour. Very valuabe when in a delivery crunch!!!
But since upgrading to Acrobat X Pro which we need for our Office 2010 upgrade, we have been unable to use the plugin. I am looking for a new solution that can run a process to set this option across all documents. We are not a bunch of people who can go write scripts etc to do this so something off the shelf/ready made would be great.
"... manually inputting the path."
That is one method.
While not on your scale I maintain a large "eLibrary" of PDF document collections.
Also provide OSM for distribution of some of the collections.
Each topic has a cataloged index. Each sub-topic has a cataloged index.
For a topic / sub-topic a PDF that the user will land on has the path to its PDX.
The PDF opens, the PDX is mounted, advanced search is available for the respective collection.
The PDX stays 'mounted' until the end-user moves on.
Also, PDXs can be selected from the Search dialog/pane.
The PDX and its associated folder of index files is not in the folder that holds PDF(s) which are periodically updated.
So, update a collection, rebuild the index.
Good to go.
Not as quick as the plug-in but less mind-numbing as the "each PDF manually".
