Hello. I am editing a price list and I need to add 10% multiplication to every price. My problem is that I have to manually add 10% for every single price one at a time which is taking a really long time for a pdf that has 98 pages. Is there a way to add 10% multiplication to every single price automatically?
I also have other Adobe creative cloud apps that I can use not only Acrobat Pro Dc.
What are names of price fields?
I'm sorry I do not know how to find price field names. It's just text that I can edit I don't know how to see its name.
Unfortunately you can't automate this process since it's just plain text, if those were fields then you could probably use calculation script to do task.
I'm no expert in excel but maybe if you ask somewhere on excel forum you could export text as excel then apply formula to add 10% to cells with numbers and then export it back as PDF.
Change the prices manually.
The process of making a price list should start with a spreadsheet or database, where you update prices as needed. This is then included into a document, perhaps in Word or InDesign, as a mail merge. Finally a PDF is made. Don't try to edit the final PDF, it will drive you crazy and waste days of work.
PDF files were never meant to be edited in such an extensive way. If you don't have access to the source document and this is your only way of doing it then a script might be used to identify all the numbers in the file, overlay them with (read-only) fields and then set the values of those fields to the desired new amounts.
This is not a simple task, though, and would require the development of a custom-made script.
