I have Adobe Acrobat Pro 2020 and my friend has Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, we both have it installed on a Mac. Both programs look very similar however, there is one thing I do not understand. When searching a PDF document theirs will show how many times that word comes up and it will even show similar words. I have provided screenshots of the differences. Is this something I can enable in mine? I notice on Adobe Acrobat Pro DC there is an option for "Enable Auto Complete Suggestions", this does not seem to exist in the 2020 Pro version.

Hi!
Turning on case sensitivity will not help you in this situation.


To enable auto-complete suggestions and counts:

  1. Go to Edit/Preferences
  2. In Categories, select 'Search'
  3. Check "Enable auto completion suggestions"

This will enable the counts in most PDF files. For long files (1000+ pages), it can take a minute to build the index after you search.


Some lucky users have also been randomly selected to get early access to Search Suggestions which will also recommend related words: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/whats-new/2020-may.html#Cloudpoweredsearchsuggestions 

TOPICS
General troubleshooting, How to, Scan documents and OCR
