Hello,

 

Could you please advise me how to create a correct search query if there are special characters?
I need to find: 315A1509-507, but with the "-" symbol included, the search does not work properly.

It searches for: 315A1509 but not when I type 315A1509-507.

This ID number is present in file.

 

Thank you.

Hi Gregory_.,

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

Could you please confirm if you experienced this behavior with this particular file?

Would you mind sharing the PDF with us?

Share the Acrobat and OS version numbers.

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi

Some analysis: - signs (hyphens) have always been treated specially in PDF. The reason is so that we can search for tyrannosaus in

The best known dinosaur (at least if you believe the movies) is tyranno-

saurus rex.

In other words, it tries to work out what is the hyphen at the end of a line, removes the hyphen, and joins the word back together. So far so good. But in THIS PDF, Acrobat Reader is convinced that all the dashes mark the end of a line even when they don't. You can see this by selecting the text (on the PDF page) 315A1509-507. Paste into Notepad or whatever. What I see is

315A1509

507

No, I don't have a fix.

No, I don't know it something special in the PDF, a general bug, or both.
