WHY does Acrobat no longer search embedded indexes? Why create indexes at all if they are not searched?

Hi Mr. Larson

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. As described you aren't able to search the embedded indexes in the PDF file.

 

Please checkout the steps shared in the help page https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/enable-embedded-index-to-search-pdf.html and see if that works for you.

 

Regards

Amal

I found that. But I think it's ridiculous users have to go through all that to use an embedded index. Embedding doesn't do anything, does it, unless we enable in this way, correct?

Because of security issues.
