Anybody know how to search a PDF for annotations. Otherwise we're going to have to go through 35,000 pages by hand...

Thanks in advance!

Apparently this is a perfect answer:

Locating and Searching Comment annotations.



From the open Comments List you can sort and filter comments.
This is discussed in Acrobat X Pro's online Help:
[help.adobe.com] tml


A sorted / filtered list can be used to generate a PDF comment summary report.

You could then use Find on the output summary report.


Using Acrobat X Pro you can embed an index in the PDF.

Then use the Search tool. With the Search pane open tick "Include Comments".
Search returns have an icon at the left of each instance.
This portion of Acrobat X Pro's online Help shows and describes these.
The third up from the list's bottom is the Comments icon.

One of these or combinations may met your needs.


Be well...

I think Apple's Preview will also do that.

Looks spectacular. For me, those links don’t work.
