The PDF probably is a scan and doesn't contain searchable text.
However, the one I'm searching, seems to be in unicode or something and when you type in the search box it puts the text in non-unicode and so it can't find it, duh!
If I copy the text I want to search for, e.g., '(2)' from the document and paste it into the search box then it shows as garbage, e.g., 7"8 ,in the search box but finds the correct text (2) in the document. Whereas if I type the exact same text into the search box it can't find it. Sadly, that is plain and simple a BUG with version 8. It is BROKEN.
here, so the watchers can debug it, is the URL to the document in question:
on the bottom of the 3rd page is the (2) that I referred to. Try it for your self.
FWIW: I'm using windows xp sp2 and AR 8.1.1 dated 10/10/2007
Well, the font encoding is screwed up. The PDF producer is ghostscript. I can fix it by adding accessibility tags, but that won't help you.
You'll need Acrobat standard or pro to tag the pdf to make it searchable.
Thanks. Looks like it is the doc. not the app. My apologies.
judith, i am having the same problem as you.
i go to a page in the pdf file and then search for something that i can see on that page and it never finds that either.
had 7, but the fault appears to be in 8 too.
but google books has an accurate result report using their search on the pdf file.
it sounds as if i have to get ANOTHER version to be able to find something.
I have this same problem. In version 7.0, I cannot find a specific word I can see, yet I can find other words in the document. It sounds liek Ver 8.0 has the same issues. Sad.
Okay, let's see who can help me. When I perform a search on a document, it automcatically closes upon completing the search. It does not allow me to see the search results. What can this be and how can I fix it?
