I have a list of some 100+ words to check their presence in a PDF file. In PDF, I could import only a notepad to present the list of words to be checked, using redaction to highlight/remove the list of words. The problem with notepad is that I can't have certain terms searched. Fox example, I want to search for the following combination:
Any letter+space+however (To find out the error in a sentence like this: They knew it was useful however, they felt it was expensive.) (It should be: “… was useful; however, they felt…”)
Any number+space+respectively (To find out the error in a sentence like this: Tom and Peter spent $10 and $15 respectively, from their savings.) (It should be “… $10 and $15, respectively”)
How do I have this customized search possible? I just work with Word, Excel, and PDF and not an expert. Any idea would be greatly appreciated.
First of all, you posted in the Adobe Reader forum but your question is clearly about Acrobat, so I'll move it to one of the Acrobat forums.
This kind of customized search is only possible using a custom-made tool, written for this purpose.
