I have a paid, fully licensed version of Adobe Acrobat DC on my PC. I have downloaded a couple of *.pdf files. They open and are viewable and I can print them out; however, when I try to search the document for specific words, the search shows 0 documents and 0 results. I need to be able to do key word searches on the current document as I am taking an open book test tomorrow and these documents are hundreds of pages! Why is the word search or Advanced Search not finding words that I am picking right out of the current document? I'm typing them in case sensitive.
Hi Timothey E.J,
Sorry for the delayed response.
As per the issue description mentioned above, you are facing issue when trying to search specific words in a pdf using Acrobat, is that correct?
Would it be possible to share one of the pdf files you are working with to replicate the issue at our end?? To share the file here in the forums, refer to the steps given in this link: How to share a file using Adobe Document Cloud
