Re: Searching PDFs

Why are Adobe products necessary? Will pdf searching be enabled if a competitor's product, such as Nuance's PDF Converter Professional is installed, or MUST I go with Adobe for this?

Hi advscoop, I've had this problem over the last year, too. It comes and goes. I also have XP Pro and 1GB RAM and at times the system locks up when processing Office documents (for me, usually Excel files). All I can tell you is that if you leave your system alone for a while, it will come back to l...

Hi Roman, Many thanks for following up on this. Sorry my reply is a couple of days late; I've installed the update to AFR and it works a treat! I replaced 402 individual terms in a single workbook with four worksheets (each with over 100 rows of data) in 1 minute and 17 seconds. Thanks again. Best, ...

Hi,

I haven't tried this with AFR myself, but usually if you want to search/replace symbols like ? and *, you need to put a tilde (~) in front of them: ~* or ~?.

I don't know if this will work in a replacement but it certainly works when you are searching.

Batch replacement in Excel takes forever - normal?

Hi, I've now purchased AFR, because searching and replacing in non-Office files is blindingly quick and accurate and I believe that alone to be worth the price. However, I would like to be able to search and replace within Office files and am still having trouble with xls files (haven't tried doc fi...
