Hi @jan.exner,

Follow this steps:

  1. Start process and pass Adobe Reader path and second argument file path
  2. Send Hot key, Ctrl + F (this opens in build text finder)
  3. Use TypeInto activity to search the string in Find window (Pass the text with enter key)
    This find the text move the cursor to that place then you can take screenshot of it.

Hi @Sasi.lalo,

I tried, but unfortunately the screen moves so that the search word is on the middle, I need it to be as high as possible.

Next is the fact that I sometimes need it for scanned PDFs …
