Search for highlighted text

Post by hsrstud » Tue Mar 23, 2010 1:00 am

It would be great if the PDF-XChange Viewer could search for highlighted text. For instance, I have an old version of a book with some pages that are highlighted. Now that the new version is out, I would like to search for the highlighted text in the old version and re-highlight the same text in the new version, as opposed to having to scroll through all of the pages (~550 pages) to find the text I highlighted. If this feature is currently available, would you please let me know how to use the feature? If not, would you please include this as a suggestion for a future release?

Thank you!
