  1. Click to download the PDF. Ought the little-known publisher have lessened the file size from 253 MB?

  2. Anyway, how can I color only the 4 different headings most methodically and quickly? Coloring each is obviously too unproductive.

  3. The snag is that some of the book's content (that oughtn't be colored) may match heading 4's font formatting. See the combined screenshot beneath.

    Can you share what you have tried? Just my opinion, but questions should not require any download of a file, even a PDF. – Scott Jan 30 '19 at 20:30
  • have you tried selecting the text and clicking the black box on the right? – Junme Jan 31 '19 at 2:05
  • @Junme You're not suggesting coloring each, separately, right? – Accounting Jan 31 '19 at 2:43
  • If the PDF is structured, you could use the structure tree as a guide. This does, however, not protect you from wrongfully use of the structure type. Otherwise, if a visual check of the context is needed, you will be best off by doing it manually. – Max Wyss Jan 31 '19 at 3:22

    @mrserge -- Quote "As you see now there is only unlucky guessing takes place" ---- and there IS a download.. so the download is offering ZERO benefit and is unnecessary. That is my point. Questions should not require a download. Again, his is merely my opinion. You are free to disagree with me :) – Scott Feb 1 '19 at 17:14

Unfortunately it will not be possible without scripting. There is no built-in tools in Acrobat that can select particular text by font name, size and style.

  • Thanks again! How can I do this with 'scripting'? Is it challenging? – Accounting Feb 9 '19 at 22:58
  • 2. Can I select particular text by "font name, size"? I removed the third criterion of 'style', which means bold or italics. – Accounting Feb 10 '19 at 8:56
