Lesson 14. Building a Searchable PDF Library and Catalog

Lesson 14. Building a Searchable PDF Library and Catalog

Converting all of your electronic and paper publications to PDF lets you distribute and search large collections of documents quickly and easily. You can use the Acrobat Catalog feature to create a full-text index of your PDF publications, and then use the Search command in Acrobat or Acrobat Reader to search the entire library almost instantly.

In this lesson, you'll learn how to do the following:

  • Build an index using the Acrobat Catalog feature.

  • Choose Catalog options.

  • Use the Search command to locate information contained in the files indexed by Catalog.

  • Set Search options.

  • Refine a search.

  • Use Document Info fields in searches.

  • Search for information using Boolean expressions.

  • Search for a phrase.

This lesson will take about 50 minutes to complete.

If needed, remove the previous lesson folder from your hard drive, and copy the Lesson14 folder onto it.
