Good Evening!

This is probably a breeze for a big section of the users of these forums but I am still no further forward after a few hours than when I hit the buffers at work yesterday.

I have used Acrobat Action(Java/script)(s) doodads for highlighting instances of words in large PDFs for some time... I wanted to delete pages from a 1500+ page PDF where a word could be found on that page...

There is an action here: 

called "Extract Commented Pages"... supposed to be OK for X and XI... this looks like what I want, to extract pages from a 1300 page PDF of collision reports that feature a given text string 

I used to have an action that I think was based on a legal redaction script but it is filed somewhere! I have been googling around all evening to no avail.....

If you have already got an action that does this or a version of the above that doesn't give the error I get (see below - unable to import the Action.... The file is either invalid or corrupt) I will forever by indebted to your gratitude - it just needs to work, I can drive Notepad to change configurations etc.....

Many thanks, have a good weekend!

Dr B

Which version did you download?

There is one of version Xi and a different one for version X.

It looks like I downloaded the XI one BUT I can't find the X one....

Any clues as to where it might reside....?

Thanks

Just solved it for myself.... how STUPID do I feel?

(i) Download Extract Commented Pages Action (Acrobat XI Pro)
(ii) Download Extract Commented Pages Action Documentation (PDF, includes embedded Acrobat X Action)

https://files.acrobat.com/preview/7cd5ab19-aba7-40a1-a0e4-7eb26eb78178

The first was NOT compatible as it was a XI Pro script.... the SECOND is a Acrobat X Action embedded in the PDF and just what I wanted

it is called: Extract Commented Pages.sequ and is embedded in the PDF!

Will archive the latter just in case! 

Sorry for wasting anyones time..... PEBKAC!

Dr B
