    Using Actions to call Acrobat regular expressions


      I'm working with Acrobat X.

      In Tools > Protection > Search and Remove Text, you have the option to search for regular expression patterns found here:

      C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Acrobat\10.0\Preferences\Redaction\ENU\SearchRedactPatterns.x ml

      I want to create an Action that calls that list of Acrobat regular expressions.

      In the Action Wizard, when creating a new Action (Protection > Search & Remove Text), you don't get the option to look for those patterns. Has anyone done this?  Dose anyone know a simple way to modify the generated .sequ file so it will do this?
