Topic: Adobe Capture Indexing Questions

I am looking for lessons learned regading Adobe Capture ASAP.


I have 20 to 40 thousand pages to scan and index and post on a Web Site for other users to find.  I am looking at Adobe Capture to create indexing (searchable words).

  1. I also have a number of documents already in PDF format that have not been indexed.  Can Capture create metadata for already formatted documents or do  I need to create metadata manually.
  2. When installing Capture does this automatically integrate itself with my Adobe Software. (Never seen it used)?
  3. How does it create an index - do I provide guidance on how or where to look for to create meaningful indexing. Can I modify what is being indexed? 
  4. Which version of Capture is best if I want to use this on multiple work stations 3 to 5.
  5. Is my assumption correct that Google will search on this index information as well as the metadata I create manually.  I am trying to avoid creating manual entry of metadata.

Thanks for feedback
