Acrobat Pro DC not using embedded index in search

I have recently downloaded Acrobat Pro DC - version 2020.009.20074.

I have added an embedded index to a PDF file. When using the advanced search in Acrobat Pro the search does not used the embedded index info but instead still slowly searches page by page. I came across an article that stated since 2018 the embedded search is turned off. You have to add a registry entry "bToggleUseEmbeddedIndex" to enable embedded searches. I add this registry entry and it still doesn't work. This is incredibly frustrating. Any help would be appreciated. Using an older acrobat reader does search using embedded index info. Why was this feature removed / disabled?
