How do I search pdf for text?

When I tap the touch screen on my device I see a search icon. I tap on that and get a keyboard on the bottom and search bar on the top. When I tap the words out on the keyboard, the word appears on the search bar. When I press 'Enter' on the keyboard, nothing happens.


Is the search function not working in this app, or am I missing something?








Since no one answered me, I'm guessing I worded the question in a bad way. I'll rephrase.


I can make a search bar appear. But when I type a word in to it, nothing happens. I basically can't search.


Does anyone else have the same problem? Or does the search work as it's supposed to for anyone else?


It would be great if someone could give me any kind of feedback.

    After you hit search, you should either see a toast mentioning that there were no results, or you should see the searched word get highlighted in green.


    Could you share a screen capture of the issue so we can investigate further?  You can email it to
