)-- DocuGrab Word Search and View brings the power of Google, Yahoo, and Bing search engines to the Windows desktop. Searches are instantly performed on any PDF, Microsoft Word or text file with the results returned in list ordered by best match.
Matches are returned in a list where clicking or hovering over an item immediately displays the document, scrolling to the first match. An internal text viewer eliminates the need for additional software such as Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat.
Double click a list to open in an external editor or save any PDF or Word Document as a text file. DocuGrab makes finding phrases in documents fast and easy. Go to http://www.idxsoft.com to view a short video demonstration and download a free 30 day trial.
To make searching easy, DocuGrab has an auto-complete drop down list, similar to online searches, preventing searches for non-existent words. Search results are returned in a list with exact matches listed first, followed by best match.
When an item in the list is clicked or hovered over, DocuGrab’s internal document viewer scrolls and highlights the match. Press Find Next to highlight the next match. Double click to edit the document with external software. Limit the search scope by file name, type or date. View-by-date and view-by-folder tabs also provide an easy way to search and browse documents.
DocuGrab uses a very fast hard drive scan to build its word dictionary; the scan usually takes less than a minute and needs to be run only once, because the results are saved in a fast virtual database. Choose the drives, folders and file types to be scanned. Once the drive scan completes, view the documents in an explorer-like folder or date view while the word dictionary is being built.
Enable mouse hovering for no-click touch screen feel. DocuGrab/32 bit indexes and searches up to 45 million words in an unlimited number of documents. Because it’s so fast, the search dictionary is built at user discretion without any system-slowing services running in the background.
The Scan Control tab lists the folders, file types, sizes and dates to be included in the dictionary. DocuGrab scans the My Documents folder by default, but any folder or drive, including networked and removable drives can be added to the dictionary.
DocuGrab has an internal engine that decodes Portable Document Files (.PDF), Microsoft Word Documents (.Doc, .Docx) and Text (.txt) files. Use the file type list to define additional file extensions and external software. DocuGrab /64 bit version is planned as well as a client-server version for multiple users and it runs on Windows 7/Vista/XP both 32 & 64 bit versions. 1 gig free memory is recommended.
