Thread: How to find text string in pdf

    Default How to find text string in pdf

    I sometimes search for a specific word or phrase in a pdf document. Usually ctrl-F works, but it doesn't seem to with my version (4.44, 64 bit, Windows 10).

    How do I perform a simple "find"?

    AFAIK does IrfanView show a PDF-file as a picture, not as a text document.
    You need a dedicated PDF-Viewer to extract text. My personal favourite is PDF-XChange Viewer
    There are also some other ones.
