Re: Adobe Acrobat Reader: search function


Bissett, Tom <tom.bissett@...>
 

Hi, I find that I have my accessability settings to load the whole document rather than a page at a time. When reading large documents it is to anoying to wait for each new page to load. Some of my manuals are over a thousand pages and it takes a long time to load each new page.
The setting can be found under document / accessability assistant. You just need to follow the prompts. This will allow you to search the whole document using the jawskey+control+f search command.

Regards
Tom Bisset

Hi,

Yes, control + F is useless for me. Control + insert + F is ok, but for a
multiple-page document, it only searches the current visible page. I want
the whole document to be searched. Any suggestion?

Hamid,

Just to be clear, are you using the standard Acrobat find command Ctrl+F
or the Jaws-specific Acrobat find command Ctrl+Ins+F?

In my experience, the standard Acrobat find command is worthless while the
Jaws-specific Acrobat find command works well.

Hi all,

How can I use the Jaws search function for the entire document. It is
apparently only looking in the current page!

Thanks,

Hamid
