Yes, for technical reasons the Highlight File Format system that ran search highlighting has been depreciated from the Acrobat X Family. There is no workaround.
See my earlier post for more information.
Thanks for the quick reply.
I am reverting to Acrobat 9 until this is restored is some form. Am using dtSearch daily and hit highlighting is a necessity. Are you planning to replace it?
I fully concur that search hit highlighting is and was a valuable feature. I purchased Acrobat Pro X and like it very much as compared to Acrobat Pro 9, but I am at a total loss to understand why this feature was deleted from Acrobat Pro X. Makes no sense and the workaround (making Acrobat 9 Reader the default handler for PDF files) is unsatisfactory.
So - you (Adobe) have CREATED a PROBLEM, & your answer is "THERE IS NO WORKAROUND"????????
I've just naively allowed Acrobat 9 to update routinely, & now my work is RUINED. I have deadlines, & you have "There is no workaround."
It's not an optional feature. It's IMPERATIVE.
THANKS FOR NOTHING ADOBE. HORRIBLE IDEA.
re: Acrobat 9.4.5
Ruined as of June 16, 2011
I just talked to support. They promise a fix in about a week (translation - July).
The only workaround they offer is to uninstall & install to the last version you have on disc. Helpful, huh?

There is a workaround. It's called Foxit Reader (an alternative PDF reader), and it's available for free from CNET downloads. I switched after hitting several work snags because of this bug/feature with Adobe Reader.
