This batch script will allow you to process an entire folder of files for a certain term, and then perform an action on them in case the term was found.
The actions available at the moment are:

  • Copy to a folder: Specify an output folder to which all the files with a match will be copied.
  • Create a PDF summary of the file paths: At the end of the batch a new PDF file will be created, containing the paths of the matching files.
  • Print file paths to the console: Will print the paths of the matching files to the built-in console of Acroabt.
  • Print entire file: Will send each matching file to the printer.
  • Print matching pages: Will print only the actual pages in the matching files where the match was found.
  • Print matching pages with highlights: Same as above, but will also highlight the matches on the actual pages.

I've been working with Gilad for almost 7 years on an evolving project that relies on lengthy complicated scripts. The turnaround times, pricing and accuracy are excellent. His depth of knowledge has been extremely helpful in helping define issues and offering options to accomplish the tasks. The add on scripts have been essential to maintaining and updating our existing documents as well. I highly recommend his services and products.

We first started working with Gilad back in 2015. I found him online in looking through different forum sites and realized he is an expert in Adobe and creating java scripts. I started with a small project and quickly realized he was an asset to have as a resource! Gilad has completed over 50 different projects for me. Each project has been completed on-time and he has been extremely easy to communicate with and his coding has always been accurate! I highly recommend Gilad and his team!

Gilad exceeded my expectations with nine different projects in which I sought his developer expertise.  He looks at your concept and suggests ways to make it more efficient.   Gilad sees additions or modifications you never considered and which ultimately prove invaluable.  If your concept has shortcomings, Gilad takes the time to explain them and then work with you to correct or replace them.  I wholeheartedly and unequivocally endorse Gilad as an expert developer.
