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.

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

Gilad D. (try67) said...

@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?

I'm wanting to buy this script if it works. Can you confirm that it will work with adobe acrobat

Gilad D. (try67) said...

Yes, it will work, as described.

Phillip Ward said...

Awesome - I will buy it today. Do you have a script that will prevent people from removing the password on locked pdf files

Gilad D. (try67) said...

No, sorry.

Can this tool do it?
Any trial or moneyback option if it does not work?

It's hard to say from the screenshot whether or not these are form fields or just static text. This tol will only in the former. If you send me the actual file I could give you a definite answer before you buy it.
