Search & Markup Node

The Search & Markup node adds text markups or redactions to all the search results found within a PDF document. Searches can be performed using standard text strings or regular expressions.


General Settings

Word or Phrase: Enter the text you wish to search for

Use Regular Expression: Allows you to user a regular expression to perform more advanced search queries


Case-Sensitive: If checked, searching for the string "The" will not return the same results as searching for the string "the".

Whole words only: If checked, searching for "the" will not return occurrences of "they". But when this option is left unchecked, all occurrences of "they" will appear in the occurrence list.
