hi does anyone have any suggestions or even understand my problem?
Are you sure you looking at the same doc now as you did before?
Check if there are any fonts within the PDF go to file>document properties>fonts.
If there aren't any fonts, you won't be able to search because the PDF is as you say a picture of text and not actual text.
I'm absolutely positive that I could search text on the PDF before. In fact, I did a lot of searching. Now I cannot do any searches. And yes, I checked the fonts thing and there is none. I'm completely boggled about this. And I used google to find the pdf and could search the PDF while opening it under google. Now, I can't.
Any other suggestions?
Hard to say what happened but the best guess is, you have a different PDF than before. See if to can select any text. If not, it's a scan.
