    Search your library


      Hello ADE forum


      My apologies if this has been addressed before, though initial search did not return any results. If such a thread exists, please point me in the right direction.


      Is there a way to efficiently search all ADE documents / comlete library search as is possible in advanced search of multiple pdfs? like "Ctrl + Shift + F"

          You can only search in a open eBook.

            That's a shame. I also noticed from another post that documents can be locked from search. Both are truly a shame as always a useful function when working. I only use ADE because of the great way it displays multiple pages (more than two) on a high resolution screen, otherwise only if I have to. So far I find pdfs much more useful for work documents. The need for two readers (adobe reader /acrobat and ADE is somewhat lost on me though. Wouldn't it be more useful to have one product with "all" the "good" features?

              There is a note stating:    If documents are encrypted (have security applied to them), you cannot search them as part of a multiple-document search. Open those documents first and search them one at a time. However, documents encrypted as Adobe Digital Editions are an exception and can be searched as part of a multiple-document search.


              I am doing advance search however those PDFs encrypted as Adobe Digital Editions are not included as part of a multiple-document search. How can I include these?

              The message is stating: "search has skipped 6 files because either these files are corrupt or you do not have permission to open them".
