Search pdfs (in dir tree) with blank pages?

Post by mattad » Mon Sep 16, 2019 7:00 am

Ok, I know how to search over all pdf files in a dir tree for a certain pattern like "123mypattern".

But is there a way to search for all pdf files in a directory tree which contain at least one blank page?

A page should be consider blank if it contains no (black or colored) text and contain no images.
A blank page which contains some (invisible) management frames/rectangles (only) of whitespace characters (like blanks, tabs, CRs) should be accepted as blank.

How can I achieve this?

Hello mattad,

I am afraid that there's no way to achieve such a search with our products.
