Topic: Reader 6 Search Pane
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 98452

I have products developed in Acrobat 5. They consist of a number of indexed PDFs and a simple PDF search form on a CD. In Reader 5, after a user searched on a term the results would appear in a simple search results box. If there was only one hit document, that document would open immediately with the search term highlighted.

If a user has got Reader 6, after they type in a search term in my search form and click my Search button, a large Search pane opens on the left. In this search pane is the term that the user typed into the search form. The user then has to click the search button on the Reader 6 search pane. The results then appear at the bottom of the search pane.

This behaviour is very confusing for the users. Is there any way I can suppress this if a user is using Reader 6?

Thanks

Andrew

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
