I am considering upgrading to Acrobat 7.0. I have 5.0.

I want to be able to specify a search word or phrase
from HTML, such as **.pdf#search="***" and then be
able to set the view to automatically display the
searched item in Acrobat reader. I am guessing that
some syntax as **.pdf#search="***"&zoom=400 or something might work. Also, In Acrobat 5.0 there is no way I cankeep named destinations from defaulting to the top
of the page. This is no good if I am searching for
a note at the bottom of the page. One has to go into
the pdf file manually and set the view of the named destination. This is no good if you don't have the rights to edit the pdf file.

Summary: I need an HTML originated search that goes to the exact spot in the pdf file where the item is found and displays it centered in Acrobat/IE with some zoom factor without having to either modify the pdf file or have the user
scroll around to find the information on the page.
