I am using Android v3.2 and Adobe Reader v10.0.2 on an Asus EEE Pad Transformer and I am experiencing the problem that searches finds stuff that spans multiple lines. This behavior is not consistent with the PC/Windows version of Reader, which does not find stuff that spans multiple lines.
For instance, given this example:
(line 1) Foo
(line 2) Bar
If I search for "foobar", the Android version of Reader finds a match on line one. This effectively means that Reader finds all sorts of gibberish that is nowhere related to what you are looking for. For instance, I often search for specific page numbers such as "161" and doing so in a computer science book with many examples is very painful as it finds about 20 matches that are not really matches for what I am searching for.
Thanks for your reply. It does seem that it is a document issue as I
have not been able to recreate it with other documents. Sorry for not
thinking about the possibility that it might be a document issue.
You can close this and/or delete this thread, if you want to.

Thanks for sharing your problem with us.
This looks to be a document specific issue. Are you facing the same problem with other PDF documents as well?
Unfortunately, I cannot share the file as it is copyrighted material (a
book). But I now remember that when browsing the file with the
PC/Windows version of Adobe, the problem did not appear. So there must
be some sort of difference between the Android and the PC version of
Adobe reader with respect to newline handling. Specifically, when I
searched for page number 161 on Android, I it matched stuff like "16\n1"
and "1\n61", which makes it quite tiresome to search for line numbers.

No issues at all.
Can you please share the concerned file, if possible, if you want us to look into and resolve this issue?
Thanks for bringing up your query.
