    Hi, I have 41 pdf documents with over 500 pages and I need to extract only pages with a specific text. I opened all 41 PDFs in one preview window and search for that words, preview found them but I cannot export them just like that? Is there any solution for this? Thanks

    I know of no automated solution, but you can use the sidebar in Preview to delete all the pages that you don't want, leaving you with a PDF that includes only the pages you select.

    Also, you can drag a selected page or pages from the sidebar to the Finder and a new PDF will be created there.

    yes, I know that, but it doesn't work when you search for text. Try it :)
