Chapter 2. Acrobat Reader in Depth > Using the Find Tool

Using the Find Tool

Sometimes you need to locate a particular word or phrase within a document. Instead of trying to find it yourself on every page, you can use Acrobat Reader's Find command to do the work for you.

To find a word or phrase in a PDF file:

1.
Choose Edit >Find (Ctrl+F/Command-F), or click the Find button on the File toolbar.

2.
In the text field of the Find dialog box, type the word or phrase you're looking for (Figure 2.20). If the term stands alone (like “PDF”), then select the Match Whole Word Only checkbox.

Figure 2.20. Type the word or phrase you're looking for then select the Match Whole Word Only checkbox.


3.
Click Find. The first occurrence of the word or phrase will be highlighted.
