    PDF in iBooks, search question

    GJM

      Hi there, I have a client who uses iBooks to view 2 pdfs on her iPad. The pdfs were created in InDesign, 2 different designers (not me). The issue she encountered is with search results in iBooks.

       

      In the first book, when I search for a particular number, the search results show 1) page number results and 2) text results containing the number. Shown below.

      In the second book, when I search for a particular number, the search results 1) page number results and 2) text results containing the number PLUS a word next to it ("audrey-small"). Shown below.

      Has anyone else experienced this with reading pdfs in iBooks? Is there any way the word "audrey-small" can be taken out so that search results for numbers only show the number? I'm posing this as an InDesign question because the 2 files were built by 2 separate designers and they may have different creation/design processes.

       

      I don't know if iBooks is the best application for reading pdfs on the iPad, but that's what my client uses. Both books were created in Adobe InDesign. I'm posting this also to the Adobe Forums, but any insight here would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

          In the first case, that might be the expected behavior. It seems in iBooks, pdfs don't have the option to go to a certain page # only as you have it with Adobe Reader. It just puts the number in the general search and brings all results containing that number. Regarding the second case, I have no idea why is showing audrey-small.
