In trying to replace the functionality of a program called Quosa
So I download a collection of PDFs and then put them into a portfolio. I then search the contents for all pdfs that have a particular word/phrase. I would then like to select all files with a hit and export/copy them to another folder (these would subsequently be uploaded to a server for further processing).
Is this possible? Is there a third party program available or plugin?
If you were using a Portoflio it would have been much easier to do... May I ask what's the point of merging files to a Portfolio, searching them and then copying them out of it? Why not just search them directly? If you did that (which Acrobat can do) you could save the results as a CSV file, and then use a script to copy the files that had a hit to another folder. I've actually developed a (paid-for) tool that does something very similar, only at the page level instead of the file level, but it can be easily adjusted for your needs.
