I had a look through the forums but could not find any topics on my specific needs even though I think it is a rather common question (?).
My idea is this:
I would like to have an action that automatically highlights certain words, phrases etc.
Which phrases are hightlighted shoud be dependend on a (for example) CSV-file which I choose during the action.
The CSV-file has two columns: One for the words which are to be highlighted, the other one with the contents of the hightlights; possibly a third one which defines exceptions..
Is this possible in Acrobat? If so, how to start? We use Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro.
Yes, it is possible to do it, by using a script.
I've developed such a script and it can be customized to your specific needs (not sure what you mean about the "exceptions" column, though). You can find it here: Custom-made Adobe Scripts: Acrobat -- Highlight All Instances of a Word or Phrase in a PDF
I'll take a look. Thanks so far!
