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?

Adding a PDF Stamp Comment

OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
