Using Adobe Reader 9 on Windows 7 ... is it possible to automate the SaveAsText function in the same way you can "automate" things in Adobe Photoshop? I don't see the Automate function listed under Reader's File menu, and I can't find anything via Google ... so I am guessing the answer is NO. But I have hundreds of files that I need to "save as" and I would like to do it "the easy way!" I simply need to open each file, choose the Save As (accessible) Text option, hit <ok>, Close the PDF File, then repeat the same steps with the next file in the directory. I don't even need to change the file names ...
If Reader cannot do this any other creative / easy / free (or maybe just "cheap") ideas are welcome.
No, you cannot automate Reader to do this. There are many programs that can convert PDF to text, some free. Just do a search.
