Rename PDF based on Content — Help! Tue May 14, 2019 7:06 pm • by wellslake
Hi There,

I would like to use Hazel to rename some PDF files with the first line of text within the individual PDF files.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do this.

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks so much!

I've moved your topic here as it's not appropriate for the Site/Forum discussion.

You want to use the whole first line? You can try a pattern like (anything) which will match everything up to a newline. Note that what you think is the first line may not actually be the first line in the PDF but I suggest starting with that.
