I Installed ARX on a Win7/64 machine a few months ago...it seems to work fine. But today I tried to use the "find" function; everything seemed normal, I asked it to find the word "smith", but it wasn't there (but it really was). I then tried the word "the", not there either. Neither was "and". What's going on? [FWIW, I use Norton if that's a problem for "find".] Thnx
I just realized that it does work on some documents. Would working or not working depend on how the PDF was generated? For ex, some of my PDFs came from a scanner, some were web-PDF conversions, some were exports (like from Family Tree Maker), some were originally PDFs, ....
Scanned PDFs that have not had OCR performed will just contain an image of text, so they cannot be searched. Other files may have messed up fonts. Without looking at eachc particular document, it's hard to say what's wrong.
George...that's it, thanks. The ones I can't read are scans with no OCR. I should have realized that.
