Acrobat -- Search & Replace Text in Form Fields


Direct purchase using PayPal ($20 only)!

Similar to my Search & Replace Text in Bookmarks script, you can use this new script to search and replace the text in all the text fields in a single file, and if you have Acrobat Pro you can run this as an Action (AKA Batch Sequence) on multiple files, all for the low price of just $20!

Using this script is very easy. You just enter the search term and the replace term:
And all of the matching text in your text fields is edited.

Before:

After:

On top of that, you can even use some basic Regular Expression commands, like \d for a digit, \s for white-spaces, $ as the beginning of the string and ^ for the end of it, etc.

If you have any questions regarding this tool, you can contact me directly.

Does this script still work in Acrobat DC?

Is the purchase a license for one machine or a JavaScript file that could be used on multiple machines?

@Marc

The license is for one machine. You can purchase multiple licenses directly, or contact me privately to discuss it.

Thanks Giliad! I purchased this morning. I do have a couple of other questions:

1. In Acrobat DC, a "Add-on Tools" pop-up appears with the script. Is there any way to stop that pop-up from appearing? It's additionally in the Add-on Tools in the tools tab, which I've already dragged to favorites.

2. Is there a solution for this in Reader DC or is this an Acrobat only solution?
