As you can see in the screenshot (sample), I have keywords which belongs to different paragraphs but got stuff into 1 line when I try to search and navigate to it in "Full Acrobat Search" screen. 

In this sample, it's just some words in a group, but in the real document (*), which is some kind of blueprint, those keyword from multiple locations on a page got stuffed to oneline, so I can not double click to "jump" to the location of the keyword. 

 

Is this an issue? Is there any way for me to show those keywords from multiple paragraphs as different lines? 

Or this is a feature and I must live with it? 

 

I'm using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC ver 2020.012.20043 on Windows 10 Pro ver 21H1

Hi there

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry to hear that. As described, search results in different paragraphs get stuffed into 1 line in Full Acrobat Search

 

We see that you have quite an old version of the Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, please update the application to the recent version 21.07.20099 from the help menu > check for updates and reboot the computer once.

You may also download the patch manually from the link https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/ReleaseNotesDC/index.html

 

Also try to repair the installation from the help menu (Win Only) and reboot the computer once.

 

Let us know if you still experience any trouble and need more help.

 

Regards

Amal

This is not an error. PDF files don't have a concept of a "paragraph". They just have text streams, placed in different locations on the page. Acrobat extracts the context of the match for your search term (ie. the text streams nearest to it in the internal structure of the file) and displays it in the results window, regardless of where it's located on the page in relation to it.

I have exactly the same issue. In my opinion, this is an error.
If there are >2 same keywords in the PDF. I would like to search them seperately to find the position of each one & Adobe Reader has grouped them in only one line in the search result. (not happened in any other PDF Readers)

I just create a very simple file for testing. Please refer the attached file.

When I search a "Test" keyword in Adobe Reader, The result is only one. I cannot move to the previous/next "Test" keyword. It's completely OK in other PDF Readers
