Highlight Text By Search
The 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):
Highlight Text Patterns
Search documents using custom text patterns (using regular expressions syntax) and highlight all occurences of the matching text. Phone numbers, SSNs, EINs, account numbers, email addresses, currency amounts - are examples of the common text patterns that occur in many business documents. The advantage of the text patterns is that you can search for any text that conforms to the pattern without the need to know the exact text. The text pattern can be used to highlight all phone numbers in the document without the need to specifically list all possible numbers.
Create Tooltips
Use highlight annotations to create tooltips for the user-defined set of words or phrases. The word with a tooltip can be optionally highlighted with a user-selected color. The tooltip automatically popups when a mouse is placed or hovered over the corresponding text.
