    Search Button

      I scanned a document into Adobe and I tried to search for a word. When I hit search and typed in the word it said that it did not find the word event though I knew for sure that the word was in the document.
      Does anybody know how to fix this problem..searching for a word in an adobe document?

      Thank you very much for your help

          You can't search a scan for a word since they are just a big image and not live text.

          You would need to use a different application to OCR (Optical Character Recognition) the image first. You may check the software that came with your scanner to see if something like that was included.
