In old versions of Adobe Acrobat reader if you did a search for a term or a word, all instances of that term/word were highlighted at the same time. IN the version that I unfortunately upgraded to, if you search for a term you only see one instance of it until you move forward. I want to be able to see all instances of a word at the same time - how do I do this?
I seem to be using Acrobat Reader DC, if that is relevant
No version of Reader, or even Acrobat, has such a feature built-in. You must have been using some kind of third-party tool...
I've developed a (paid-for) script for Acrobat (and Reader) which allows you to do that, if you're interested.
He means like this. I managed to get it to work for this document but not for another. I have no idea why or how to turn it off and on but if someone knows, please inform me!
Kate, one other thing that might help is to use Edit > Advanced Search instead. It will list all the instances and you can click each to navigate through.
I can confirm that I'm looking at a page where all the matched results to the search are highlighted, and they continue to other pages. This is definitely functionality of Reader but it seems no one knows how to reporduce consistently.
How do you know it was done in Reader? How do you know it was done autmatically and not by hand?
By the way, the script I linked to above will also work in Reader DC...
