Hi ,

I don't know where to go and whom to ask. So i thought to seek help here. Because Pressing Ctrl+J opened up the java console.Please help.

I have a pdf file of over 100 pages consisting figures.
I am looking for something that will match all the figures in the file and plot the match data's page number in a sticky note against the figure .

eg. in page number 2 there is a figure 10.23 and in page number 16,28,112 the figure flows.

What I want.

In Page 2 there will be a sticky note against the number 10.23 with 16,28,112 written.

In Page 16 against the figure(10.23 ) there will be another sticky note with 2,28,112 written in it.

In Page 28 against the figure(10.23 ) there will be another sticky note with 2,16,112 written in it.

In Page 112 against the figure(10.23 ) there will be another sticky note with 2,16,28 written in it.

In short all the figures will be tied out with one another and the refence will be plotted against them.

Please help me.
Thanks in advance,
me.

I use Acrobat Pro 9.4.2, Windows .

Of course there is. But there are a few issues with your request.

First, we are NotACodeMill. In other words, if you post the code that you have written so far and describe to us what you think the code should be doing, but what it is doing instead, then we could offer suggestions for things to try, or point out issues.

Second, we are primarily a Java forum. So if your code is in Java we could help. But you never even said what language you were using or which API you were using to access the PDF file. Though your reference to "Acrobat Pro 9.4.2, Windows" sort of implies you are using a C/C++ API.

Third, I doubt that that many ranchers have coded against Acrobat Pro 9.4.2. Especially since it is not one of the standard Java APIs or common Java open source components. So the number of ranchers who could help you might be in the single digits (or less).

I am sorry for making things complicated.
I dont have any api or code for this. I only use acrobat professional for personal use.
I am sorry if you all are annoyed with me.
Thanks are regards.
Me.

As far as i seeked helped from others i got this in reply.
"You need an automation script to analyze all the pages in the PDF to collect the info and place the sticky notes. The first bit is finding the "figure" numbers. If they are text on the page, then use the doc.pageGetNthWord() and doc.pageGetNthWordQuads() functions to write a search function. "

That's all i have.
