How To Search for a Word in a PDF


The search function in Adobe Acrobat Reader allows you to locate words or phrases in a PDF document, even if it has been converted to PDF using character recognition technology (OCR). Thanks to this function, you can perform a simple search in a single document or a more complex search in one or several PDF documents.


How To Search in a PDF Document

Open the PDF document with Adobe Reader. Then, press the Ctrl + F (on Windows) or cmd + F (on Mac) keys. A search box will appear in the upper right of the document. Enter the word or phrase you want to search, and click the Next button. Adobe Reader will search the entire document and highlight the items that match your search criteria. You can use the Next and Previous buttons to move from one element to another.

How To Do a More Complex Search in a PDF Document

Open the PDF document with Adobe Reader. Then, press the Shift + Ctrl + F (on Windows) or Shift + cmd < / bold> + <bold> F (on Mac). This time you will see a window with many more options, such as the full word search or the search in which the case is taken into account. In addition, you can search in all PDF documents stored on the hard drive or only in those in a certain folder. After entering your search criteria, click on Search to start the search.
