I have a PDF that has many notes of the form §6 a which mean to go to section 6, note a (already a bookmarked location).

Similarly, I have many notes that are of the form Bb cc:vv which refer to verses in the bible.

I am comfortable writing a regex that can break these pattern into their constituent parts, and transforming them into the the needed destinations, (e.g. Bb cc:vv => example.com/bb/cc+vv), but is there a way to make both of these things into real links?

I should note that the identification of these locations is easy (they are a different color in the text, and are easy to match.

I am looking for something that can deal with a PDF file, can be either free or paid, and run on Windows.

If it helps, I already have Adobe Acrobat XI.

  • How was the pdf created? It might be easier from there if you have access. – Bernhard Jun 1 '14 at 17:33
  • @Bernhard I have no idea. Its just an old out of print book I found on archive.org – soandos Jun 1 '14 at 20:36
