Use search index with Acrobat Reader on Ipad Pro

Good morning all,

I use the PDF format to distribute catalogs that will be read on Ipad Pro. The biggest catalogs are ~ 900 pages long and my problem is with the search engine on the iPad in the Acrobat reader app.

Basically, the search is very slow so from Acrobat Pro DC I incorporated a search index into my file, saved the file and transferred it to an Ipad again. Unfortunately, research is still very slow. The further away the search term is in the document, the more time it takes. This observation makes me say that the index is not used on the Ipad version.

Is this the case or is there a specific adjustment to be made?
Thank you in advance.

As far as I know (meaning the last time I checked), the mobile version of Adobe's Reader does not support a search index. So there is nothing you can do to speed up search.

OK, thanks.

 

Too bad I will have to find another software solution to allow consultation of the doc offline 😞

We already have the Ipad Pro so no interest in testing with Windows 10

Thanks for the information, I already did some tests before posting and I know the use of indexes from Acrobat 9 on PC (Windows XP, 7, 10).

I am forced to use Ipad Pro so no choice 😞

The embedded search index is no longer used by desktop versions of Acrobat for several month (security issues).

Thank you for this information.

 

Does an alternative solution exist for the case of files containing a lot of pages (between 900 and 1000)?
