I am new to developing with Acrobat.  We recently purchased Acrobat PRO DC nad my goal is to create an application to create "full text catalog' (PDX file set) without having to manually do it through Acrobat. My client deals with large PDF files and sometimes takes over an hour to index. The hope is my app can lauch and index the file before the client gets into work. I have made several posts in this forum and have learned a few things - at this point I am starting to believe that I am not able to create this PDX file set from scratch - there are tools to update and rebuild it but not create it from scratch.  First question is can someone confirm for me that the "full text catalog" can only bre created manually through Acrobat?  In my latest research with the "javascript for acrobat" documents I came across a javascript object "catalogjob" that looks like it might do what I am looking to do. Any information / examples out there using "catalogjob"? I don't have much experience with javascript so examples would be great. Thanks, Joe
