How to Search a PDF Document
If you are looking for a specific topic in a long PDF document, there are two utilities which can be very helpful.
- Open the document in your PDF reader. In most cases, this can be done by clicking on the file or link.
- For a quick search, do one of the following: Select Edit > Find in the main menu, or Press “Ctrl-f” (“Command-f” or “Apple-f” on a Mac). Tip: “Ctrl-f” opens the Find function in most applications, including browsers and Microsoft Office applications.
- Enter the word or phrase you are looking for in the form field provided and press “Enter” or “Return”.
In most applications, the first instance of the word or phrase in the document will be highlighted.
Scroll Through Search Results
You jump to the next instance of a word or phrase that you have searched by clicking on the right arrow found next to the search box or pressing “Ctrl-g”. Likewise you can return to an earlier instance using the left arrow or pressing “Shift-Ctrl-g”.
