Hi @all,

Is it possible with pdfedit to find text within a pdf document and highlight it (yellow, red..) without opening a gui?


What I want to do:

In the first step I want to highlight the word “hello” within the document test.pdf

In the next step I want to highlight the word “hello” not only once, but every “hello” within the document.

The last step would be to have a list of words and/or phrases which would be searched, marked and highlighted within a document without opening a gui.


Is it possible to do this with the pdfedit library?


If a gui is necessary to edit the documents, how can I use the already available commands “search, multiselect and highlight” within a plugin?


Kind regards,
