Hello,

I have about 10 pdf files and they are searchable meaning when I use CTRL+F I can find whatever I want inside them when I open them one by one, but after combining them into one pdf file using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC; and try to find something I get the message that says there's no match! I tried to use the Enhance Scans tool and Recognize Text on the combined file but I got the same result, unfortunately;

Can you please advise?

 

Thanks in advance.

Might be worth taking that newly combined file to a different computer to see if the Find routine will work with a different installation of Acrobat, or Reader.  That's obviously not normal behavior!

My best,

Dave

I do test with mine 2 documents and don't have this bug. 

 

Try to reset your Acrobat Pro settings and then try again: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/how-to-reset-acrobat-preference-settings-to-defau...

 

Are you have installed all available updates?
