    Sir,

    My requirement:

    User highlights the text in the file.
    He selects to run batch script or button Script (whichever is possible)
    all the comments are exported to a different pdf file in the below format:

    -some title-
    Page Number – Highlighted text1
    Page Number – Highlighted text2
    .
    .
    .
    page Number – Highlighted Text n.

    I already have batch script from Mr. Thom Parker which is available on the internet for doing the same but it exports it in xls, format but my requirement is to have it in a pdf format.
    Hope , I can get any help .
    Thanks in advance.
    @Merlin

    Hi,
    It’s a quite big job, but if the Thom’s script is what you wish except the exported format, that must be simplest to adapt it.
    Please share his script.

    Sir,

    Attached is the batch script i found from Mr. Thom Parkers blog …. I need few changes in that.

    1) the exported file should be in PDF format
    2) it should not be in attachments. ,, the file which generates should be the actual file without summary (for now).
    3) the format should be:

      -Some Heading –

    Page No. – Type of annotation (this is optional) – Text1
    Page No. – Type of annotation (optional)- Text2
    and so on ..
    also if possible some where in the page the time and date when the file is generated (this should i be able to hide / show according to my future requirement).

    I have one other script i found on Adobe Acrobat official forum which does exactly which i want but it prints the data in console not in pdf. below is that script hope that also helps

    Adobe script in after the thom’s script.

    Thanks

    the batch script i found at : https://acrobatusers.com/actions-exchange/        go to this page and select acrobat XI  and look for Create comment summary.
    XI
    and the other one i didnot remember as i had saved it a long ago.

    You should try the COMMENTS REPORT plugin which is part of the free abracadabraTools :
    https://www.abracadabrapdf.net/utilitaires/utilities-in-english/abracadabratools_en/

    It can be customized (I can give you the source JS file) to works with Acrobat Pro, so comments will be exported as a new « Report », which is a regular PDF file.

    See:
    https://opensource.adobe.com/dc-acrobat-sdk-docs/acrobatsdk/html2015/Acro12_MasterBook/JS_API_AcroJS/Report.htm?rhhlterm=report&rhsyns=%20

    Hi,
    In fact I didn’t understand exactly your request.
    I thought you wanted recovered the highlighted texts, that‘s why I told you it’s a quite big job.
    I never used the Report method, so that should be great if Merlin could share his source script (by this post or in my personal email).
    After a quick look on this method, I don’t know if it is possible to set the annot type you want the report.
    It seems you have a report for all types…
    Anyway it is possible to do that in an other way with a script.
    Do you want the report in a single field? Let me know.

    Sir,

    Request you to please edit the Mr. Thom’s script except for changing the export file as *.xls to *.pdf  and make it a standalone file and not as an attachment.

    I want all the highlighted text, commented text  to be in the reports in the following format:

    -Some Heading on top of page-

    Page No.  –  Annotation type  –  Text1      (here annotation type is optional, i.e make it such a way that they can be commented out in script if necessary)
    Page No.  –  Annotation type  – Text2
    Page No.  –  Annotation Type – Text3
    and so on….
    doesnot matter if this is in single field or multiple field
    Thanks

    Hi,
    So, that’s what I understood the first time, but that is not what Thom or Merlin scripts are doing!!!
    Both scripts don’t give you the highlighted text and it’s a big job to do that…
    It’s an interesting problem, but not sure I will be able to have a look on it at the moment. I will let you know.

    the second script in the text file gives us the highlighted text also  (plz check the text file i sent you the script after Thoms script it is a menu type option.  it gives me the highlighted , commented etc text.. but it prints the texts in the console…… plz check that script.  My requirement is exactly the same as given in that script but instead of printing in console it should be in pdf

    The second script is a menu item, but i don’t know if it works for both pro and reader … I tested on pro .. it works on pro but not sure about reader ….. will be helpful if it works on both.

    Hi,
    If you wish add a field to display the result and save this result that will only be done with Acrobat Pro.
    That seems rather simple. I’ll send you the new script tomorrow.

    Hi,
    Here is the adaptation I did (modifications are indicated after the lines // bebarth). I tried to create a new page and save the file but couldn’t! I think it’s a problem of trustedFunction.
    If you find how to do that, let me know… Merlin, an idea?
    Change the extension of the attached file from .txt to .js then place the file in the JavaScript folder of your Acrobat Pro.
    The script will indicate the words highlighted, but don’t forget the note indicated in the original script:

    Code:
    * Text returned may not always match exactly the text covered by the highlight.
    * This is mainly dependent upon two things: 1) whether a word is adjacent to
    * punctuation or not, and 2) whether whole words or partial wordsare highlighted
    * or not.

    …and then, you can execute from the console:

    Code:
    this.deletePages({nStart: 1, nEnd: this.numPages-1});
    this.saveAs(this.documentFileName.replace(/.pdf/i,  » (Highlighted Texts in a Field).pdf »));

    Hi,
    Did you change the .txt extension of the file in .js then placed it in the JavaScript folder of Acrobat ?
    You also have to restart Acrobat then you execute the « Copy Annotated Words – bebarth Version » menu.
    After saving with the 2-line script from the console, you should get a file like the one attached!

    Yes, i did exactly the same, i am the getting menu also,, but when i click the menu the highlighted text  is shown in console, and after i copy your 2 line script to console and run it deletes all the pages except for first page of the original file and save it save As with just the content of the first page of the original file .

    Do you have exactly the same menu with “bebarth Annotation”?
    Did you remove from the JS folder the old file?

    Rakesh Kumar, why can’t you use the Acrobat Pro embedded tool « Create Comment Summary » ?
    It look like we are trying to reinvent the wheel.
