Title

Unable to search PDFs created by FMP v12

Post

     Similar to this known issue: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/11926/kw/pdf%20search

     The above article says it applies to FMP 12 (which we use) and Adobe Reader 10-11. We use the full Pro & Standard versions of Adobe Acrobat (both version 10 and 11), as opposed to the reader but neither will allow us to search.

     We tried going back to Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard but we were still unable to search the documents. The only version we could find that allowed the search to work was Adobe Acrobat 6 Professional. Obviously this version is not available for purchase anymore so that is not a solution.

     Is there any workaround for this issue?
