Is it possible to export an array of files in a directory (PDF files) and export in the same location as the original?

 

or theres any way to acces the export module from command line or any kind of automation? 

 

Im trying to automate the following action

 

I have 12 PDF files and then i open every single one and do File->export to->Text->Save

 

Oviously I do this with a ton of files 

Im in OS Catalina and Acrobat Pro dc 2019.021

You can use the Action Wizard in Acrobat Pro to process multiple PDF files and save them as txt files.

You can't run this command from a command-line, though, at least not using Acrobat.

What sort of export specifically? To make it clear, please give us the steps you’d follow for one file. Also, how many files (ballpark?)

There's certainly an Action Wizard in Acrobat Pro for Mac.
