You need to use the RH Server (version 7 onwards I think) with WebHelp Pro output to enable searches on PDFs. RH on it's own can't include PDF file content in the search.
RH8 has enabled search for PDF, and MS Office documents (.ppt, xls, doc) if they are added in the baggage files. One does not need RHServer to search into these.
But RH8 does not control search highlighting in PDF documents which is done by Reader. RH8 will show you PDF documents in search results and once you click on them it will just open that PDF document without search highlighting. once inside PDF once can use the search of Reader/Acrobat to see the highlighting.
Thanks Vivek and Colum. If you are using RH8 Server, will search highlighting be enabled on PDFs, Word docs, etc?
I tested the search for PDFs just using RH8 but, like you said, search highlighting is not enabled.
