A vendor of mine emailed me a price list in pdf format. I am not able to use the search box to search the PDF file. "NO MATCHES FOUND" continues. I was told it may be a scanned document which is why I can not highlight any text in the file. Is there a way to make the search funtion work in this type of document?
In Adobe Acrobat (not Adobe Reader) you can try the OCR function.
You need a third party viewer like Foxit that allows you to search image in plain text mode.
