I have compiled 200 magazines in pdf formats into a folder and conducted an advanced search to find articles covering a certain phrase. Adobe Acrobat have yielded the result (in this case 142 documents with 360 instances). I am wondering if it is possible to handle these results in an automatic way. Since I will do many more phrase searches I would really like to find a way to do it that is automatic. Or do I manually have to open each result>click on the organise pages button>click extract>extract pages as seperate files>Extract?

Thanks. 

I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

The Extract Commented Pages action tool may help you with this task.
