Highlight Text By Search

This software can search for a list of user-specified words and phrases and automatically highlight them in the PDF document. Text can be highlighted with a single color or using 20 different automatically assigned colors (each search term is highlighted with a different color):

Fast and powerful hit highlighting for PDF

PDF Highlighter can mark terms in a document by a highlight configure file. Highlighter supports advanced search options including:

  • Phrases and proximity search
  • Wildcards
  • Fuzzy search
  • Synonyms
  • Language specific text analysis (e.g. stemming) for 30 languages

Alternatively, instead of feeding Highlighter with search terms, the highlight file can be used to specify locations of text that should be marked in the document.

Multicolor hit highlighting

PDF Highlighter ensures that same terms are assigned the same color. The highlighter automatically assigns colors to different terms, making the document review process more user-friendly and efficient. The color coding feature makes PDF Highlighter ideal for document forensics and natural language processing (NLP) tools as well—where the number of marked terms is much higher than for simple user queries.

Batch PDF processing

Batch highlighter can automatically annotate all your PDF documents using a file containing predefined keywords and phrases. You can assign a color to each individual phrase and optionally a category tag. PDF file created by the tool will open on the first keyword occurrence. btw, Generated PDF can be opened in any PDF viewer.

Create keyword links automatically

With PDF Highlighter Command Line software, you can turn every occurrence of a particular word or phrase into an active hyperlink. For example, you could make all occurrences of your company name in your document link through to your company web site. The Auto Keyword Link tool gives you the choice of going through each occurrence and approving them one at a time, or you can just convert all occurrences automatically in the one go.

Links can be set to execute a variety of actions such as open a URL or external file, go to a specific page or named destination, or even the next instance of the word in the document.
