I am using Adobe Reader on a Mac Os platform. All my software is up to date, including OS and Adobe Reader.
My issue is that when I try searching a particular document for a word, it may return one result, if any, although there are clearly more results in the document. I also tried this same operation on a windows os, windows 7 most updated os. The search returned all results that were there..
This must be a mac thing, I am wondering what fix there is for this?
If this helps, when I copy and past the highlighted text to msword, it comes back in wing dings or some symbols...although its clear it is readible text in the document....able to annotate andhighlight it..etc.
I have a similar problem, but it has only occurred since my Adobe Reader was updated a few days ago.
Until then, the 'search' function (command-shift-F) would operate beautifully.
Since the update (to version 9.4.0, on Mac OS-X 10.6) the 'search' menu does not even show, regardless of whether I use the shortcut or the menu from the top. 'Find' still seems to work, but it is prety useless when there ae multiple occurrences of a word or phrase within a document.
If this canot be resilved, I would much rather go back to the old version - how do I do this?
You can download older Reader versions from the Adobe FTP site ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/mac/9.x/ - navigate to the version you want and download the appropriate installation package. You may need to uninstall the newer version first.
