A picture is worth a thousand words. We have created some pdfs tutorials showing common tasks.

Proximity Searches

Post by chs200123 » Thu Mar 11, 2010 5:24 pm

Can PDF exchange viewer pro perform proximity searches? For example, search for text where two words are within a specified distance from each other. If so, what would be a basic example in typing one into Xchange viewer's search field?

Hi chs200123

I don't think the search has the capability. I've asked one of the dev team to confirm/deny this. We should hear from them soon,

regards

When is version 3 going to be released? Will there ever be a python API for PDF exchange? I want to punch myself in the face when I read java.

Code: Select all

def prioritize(featureitem):
    if featureitem=="pythonAPI":
         return sys.maxint
    else:
         return normalrank(featureitem)

def development_meeting():
    ranks = [prioritize(feature) for feature in featureRequests]
    return zip(featureRequests, ranks)
A python API is a brilliant idea and as a huge python fan, I'd stand up as a strong advocate for this if it ever came under debate in development meetings. But like all desirable features it's a matter of prioritizing and I'm not sure where it will rank compared to more critical things ;)
