How can i Auto-Highlight a searched Term

Post by jarknar » Sat Jun 29, 2013 9:44 am


i'd like to know how to auto-highlight a searched term within a pdf-file. Once i accidentially hit some hotkey and et voila the searched term was highlighted all over the pdf file
and now i am desperate to perform this miracle again.

thx in advance

Hi jarknar,

to highlight all found instances in the text is the behaviour of the new PDF-XChange Editor. the Viewer is set to highlight only the current instance as selected from the results of your search. In both cases I refer to the Advanced Search (CRTL+SHIFT+F) not the simple search.

I do not believe the Viewer can be set to behave that way, are you sure it wasn't the Editor where you saw that?

If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.

Best regards
