Index users are allowed to search within the custom properties of PDF documents by using the Custom Properties option. For example, when you create an index, you can add the custom property Title and assign a property type of string. A user searching the index can select the index and search within the custom property by selecting Title from the Additional Criteria list.


To add custom properties:

  1. Choose Document > Advanced Properties > Create Full Text Indexes to start the catalog feature.
  2. Type the field name in the Custom Field text box;
  3. Select a property type from the Type menu, and then click Add.
  4. If you want to remove a custom property from the Custom Properties list (that is, the custom property will be out of search again), select the item, and click Del.
