I want to be able to highlight pdf text in Acrobat using only the keyboard (no mouse at all). There is no highlight text hotkey available in Acrobat. So I am trying to do this: use keyboard to select pdf text, then use AutoHotKey to move the mouse near the caret location/position (which will put the mouse cursor on the highlighted text), then I can script [right-click, down, down, down, Enter] to highlight the text.
The problem is that the normal method of getting the caret position in AutoHotKey (A_CaretX, A_CaretY) doesn't work in Acrobat. I don't know how to use the Acrobat SDK and am a novice AHK user.
Can anyone help me solve this problem, either by helping me figure out how to move the mouse cursor near the pdf caret, or through a different method? Many thanks.
