For an upcoming exam, I need to bring with me certain legislative provisions across a number of different Acts, but I don't want to have to bring in thousands of pages of legislation.
Your job will be to take the PDF documents I give you, and copy/paste/reformat the provisions requirred into a word document I will also give you, across 151 provisions.
For example, one of the provisions is s14 of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal Act, for which I have attached a screenshot the original from the PDF, and what it needs to look like once reformatted in Word.
Some provisions are short, like s14 which is about 1 page long and took me about 1 minute to copy/paste/format. Some are long, like s44 which is 4 pages in the PDF and took me 2 minutes to copy/paste/format. There are 151 provisions to do, so it should take I would say between 3-5 hours.
The process will be as follows:
1. For each page the provision in question spans, copy, then paste into word using the setting "keep text only" to strip all the fonts and sizes
2. Repeat for all pages the provision spans
3. In the resulting pasted text, indent as necessary, e.g.:
- indent level 1 for the provision number and name (already provided in the word document)
- indent level 2 for each subsection (e.g. (1) and (2)) or italicised heading
- indent level 3 for each lettered paragraph ("scope of original jurisdiction")
- indent level 4 for each roman numeralled sub-paragraph (e.g. (i) or (ii)
There are some rules:
- Do not copy/paste more than 1 page at a time, otherwise you risk incorporating the PDF's header/footer as well
- Do not use find/replace to do the indents, because many provisions refer to other provisions, so a find for "(b)" would not only find paragraph (b) but would also find the text in provision (c) which says "subject to paragraph (b)..." and insert tabs into the wrong spot
