Hello everyone,

 

I am desperately looking for the following PDF file function:

 

A tool to automatically highlight any recurring words and or numbers throughout the whole PDF file, without having to manuelly type in the phrase. 

 

We often have to read PDF files 100 pages and greater while doing our invoice control, this function would dramatically decrease the processing time and assure a more accurate result. 

 

Thank you in advance!

 

Best regards,
Tom

I've developed a (paid-for) script that does just that. You can find it here:
