Using OCR to Find Specific Instances of Bold Font

Hi aficionados.

I'm a CreativeCloud subscriber. I'm using Acrobat Pro to read a PDF. Is there a way to count the number of times a bold font appears for a certain range? Specifically, I want to count the number of entries in a Table of Contents. I can count by hand but it seems like there's got to be a way to make the binary bits do the work for me.

TIA

No, that's not built into Adobe Acrobat, which got its start by replacing FAX machines and couriers. Sometimes scripters can do things that are not built into Acrobat, so they might chime in.

 

Acrobat is not a word processor.

Identifying bold text is not possible using a script, either. However, if the text they want to identify has a specific structure (for example, it starts on the page in a unique position, or is always preceded by a number) in a specific page range, that might be possible to identify, but it's impossible to say for sure without seeing the actual file.
