Using Adobe Reader, I can do an advanced search and find all the pdfs containing the search entry. However I can't seem to export text of the search results. I can highlight the names of the files containing the search, but I can't copy the text.

I want to be able to do the search and somehow copy the results or send to to text:

file1.pdf
file2.pdf

I've taken to actually taking screenshots of the results and converting it to text using an image to text converter but there must be a better way of doing this. Any suggestions?
