I've instructed Acrobat to search all PDF within a certain folder for certain text. The feature works but I noticed that it missed some of the PDF.
The missing PDF in question, I was able to find the text using the Find command so obviously the Search isn't working as well as it should be.
How reliable is the Search feature?
Also I do not see an option that will allow me to search all PDF within a certain directory and to ignore subfolders?
For Adobe Reader/Acrobat Search to function properly you must have a Cataloged index provided.
The Search feature uses the PDX file to access the associated index files.
When you build a Catalog index the configuration dialog lets you select the folders containing PDF files that are to be cataloged and the folders containing PDF file that are not to be cataloged.
