Adobe Acrobat Reader DC - Print Advanced Search Result Pages

Hello Community,

 

I´m using an advanced search on multiple PDFs with around 50 pages each. Every Single page contains a single Name and other informations regarding that specific Name. So for every person there exists only one page in those PDFs.

For example I need to print the pages regarding 20 different names and they are spread over multiple different pdfs I made a boolean search that finds and indexes those pages in the search results. Now I want to print only the pages found in the search results, how am I able to do that in one print? Or is this even possible? I´ve read about saving the search results as a PDF or CSV in Adobe Acrobat Pro but in my understanding this means only the search result index and not the pages containing the search result. 

 

Thank you very much in advance!

Hi, did you ever find a solution to print only the pages found in the search results at the same time? Or in one print?

 

Thanks,

Hi,

 

no, still waiting for a solution 😕

 

I guess it´s not intended to work that way.

Just to let you know how long I´ve been searching.

Do you know how?

Thanks

As you mentioned, in Acrobat you can export the results to a CSV file, and then it's possible to use a script to parse that file and extract those pages mentioned in it for saving or printing purposes. This can be achieved using this (paid-for) tool I've created: http://try67.blogspot.com/2011/02/acrobat-print-pages-from-csv-search.html

However, since Reader is not capable of producing this CSV file, it can't be done there.

Thank you for caring for my learning curve. Unfortunately, you are way over
my head. I can look up those words, parse and

Can't remember what else I was going to say and I believe I've already
answered. I'm sorry, getting old aint all good.
God loves you!

Bottom line is it's not possible with the free Reader.

Addendum: At least, not if you use the built-in Advanced Search command. It is possible by using a custom-made script that searches the file and then prints just those pages with matches, but this kind of search is much more slow than the built-in version and tends to fail on large files.

If this is something you're interested in hiring someone to do for you, though, feel free to contact me privately via [try6767 at gmail.com].
