    find text strings using javascript

    Mikeymoose

      There are a few tutorials on this subject but none appear to help me find specific text.


      Imagine the text above was part of a paragraph in a pdf. I want to find the words 'subject', 'appear' & 'specific'.

      The idea then is to use an automator workflow that will copy the file to a hot folder, open it in acrobat, find the text, highlight it with another javascript i have and then move it to a 'complete' folder.

       

      I'd much rather create an action to find the text and highlight it, but you can't import an Acrobat action into Automator!

       

      Any advice would be appreciated as I'm stuck!

      Cheers in advance
