%PDFAutoNameContentSearch%

Used for content based file naming. Win2PDF searches the text of the current PDF for the word specified by the PDFAutoNameContentSearch registry setting.  If the word is found, the auto-name variable %PDFAutoNameContentSearch% is filled with the word after the search word.  

 

The "Sample File Name" listed at the bottom of the window is updated to show the resulting file name based on the options selected.  This option can be combined with any of the other auto-name options.
