I am trying to search a pdf for spanish words. The issue I am running into is that the words will be found even if they are missing the accent marks they have. For example, the word "también". If I search for "también" I will find the instances. However, this search would also find any instance of the word "tambien" that does NOT have the accent over the letter 'e'. Is there a way that I can search for 'é' that won't also find the letter 'e' without the accent?
No, it's not possible using the built-in search functions.
Ok, is there another way to do it?
Only other option I can think of is with a script.
For example, you can use this (paid-for) tool I've created to highlight all the matches to your search term. It will match it exactly, including accented characters:
