Finding Words

You can use the Find command to find a complete word or part of a word in the current PDF document. Acrobat Reader looks for the word by reading every word on every page in the file, including text in form fields.


To find a word using the Find command:


  1. Click the Find button (Binoculars), or choose Edit > Find.

  2. Enter the text to find in the text box.

  3. Select search options if necessary:

Match Whole Word Only finds only occurrences of the complete word you enter in the box. For example, if you search for the word stick, the words tick and sticky will not be highlighted.
Match Case finds only words that contain exactly the same capitalization you enter in the box.
Find Backwards starts the search from the current page and goes backwards through the document.

  1. Click Find. Acrobat Reader finds the next occurrence of the word.



To find the next occurrence of the word, Do one of the following:

Choose Edit > Find Again

Reopen the find dialog box, and click Find Again.

(The word must already be in the Find text box.)


Copying and pasting text and graphics to another application
You can select text or a graphic in a PDF document, copy it to the Clipboard, and paste it into another application such as a word processor. You can also paste text into a PDF document note or into a bookmark. Once the selected text or graphic is on the Clipboard, you can switch to another application and paste it into another document.

Note: If a font copied from a PDF document is not available on the system displaying the copied text, the font cannot be preserved. A default font is substituted.


To select and copy it to the clipboard:


  1. Select the text tool T, and do one of the following:

To select a line of text, select the first letter of the sentence or phrase and drag to

the last letter.


To select multiple columns of text (horizontally), hold down Ctrl+Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) as you drag across the width of the document.

To select a column of text (vertically), Hold down Ctrl+Alt (Windows) or Option+Command (Mac OS) as you drag the length of the document.

To select all the text on the page, choose Edit > Select All. In single page mode, all the text on the current page is selected. In Continuous or Continuous – facing mode, most of the text in the document is selected. When you release the mouse button, the selected text is highlighted. To deselect the text and start over, click anywhere outside the selected text.

The Select All command will not select all the text in the document. A workaround for this (Windows) is to use the Edit > Copy command. Choose Edit > Copy to copy the selected text to the clipboard.




  1. To view the text, choose Window > Show Clipboard

In Windows 95, the Clipboard Viewer is not installed by default and you cannot use the Show Clipboard command until it is installed. To install the Clipboard Viewer, Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs, and then click the Windows Setup tab. Double-click Accessories, check Clipboard Viewer, and click OK.

TODAY WE ARE HONORING THEM AS THE 2008 NATIONAL PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE ASSOCIATION COMMUNITY COLLEGE NATIONAL CHAMPIONS. WELL, TODAY THAT'S FOR 2008. BUT THIS, THEY JUST DID A REPEAT. SO THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW THAT EL CAMINO HAS WON THE N.P.D.A. CHAMPIONSHIPS FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGES. AND THIS IS THEIR THIRD NATIONAL TITLE IN THE LAST FOUR YEARS. THE RANKINGS ARE BASED UPON EACH SCHOOL'S FINISH AT THE BEST OF FOUR TOURNAMENTS OF THE SEASON. THEY COMPETED AGAINST TWO AND FOUR-YEAR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. IN FACT, WHEN RANKED AGAINST THE OTHER 244 COLLEGE UNIVERSITIES THAT COMPETED, EL CAMINO WAS RANKED SIXTH IN THE NATION, FINISHING ABOVE SUCH PRESTIGIOUS SCHOOLS AS BERKELEY, U.C.L.A., U.S.C., NOTRE DAME AND THE AIR FORCE ACADEMY, JUST TO NAME A FEW. DEBATE, AS YOU KNOW, ENCOURAGES CRITICAL THINKING. AND CONSIDERING ALL SIDES OF AN ISSUE, JUST LIKE WE DO HERE EVERY TUESDAY. THAT WAS A JOKE. OKAY? WHICH WAS SOMETHING WE NEED MORE OF THESE DAYS. IT IS NICE TO KNOW THAT EL CAMINO COLLEGE IS DOING SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB PREPARING THESE STUDENTS TO BE TOMORROW'S LEADERS. SO ON BEHALF OF MYSELF AND MY COLLEAGUES AND THE BOARD, WE'D LIKE TO-- WE DID INDIVIDUAL SCROLLS EARLIER UP IN MY OFFICE. WE'D LIKE TO PRESENT THIS TO THE DIRECTOR AND TO THE COACH AND TO THE MEMBERS OF THE EL CAMINO COMMUNITY COLLEGE NATIONAL 2008 NATIONAL PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE ASSOCIATION CHAMPIONS TWO YEARS IN A ROW, AN INCREDIBLE, INCREDIBLE ACHIEVEMENT.

SUP. KNABE: VERY GOOD. CONGRATULATIONS. WE'RE JUST HAVING A DEBATE. [APPLAUSE.] THAT'S ALL I HAVE.
SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: SUPERVISOR ANTONOVICH?
SUP. ANTONOVICH: WHENEVER THERE'S A TRAGEDY, CATASTROPHE AROUND THE WORLD, OUR LOS ANGELES COUNTY FIRE DEPARTMENT HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE TO HELP AND GIVE ASSISTANCE, BE IT AT HOME OR ABROAD. THIS MORNING WE'RE GOING TO INTRODUCE 12 REMARKABLE INDIVIDUALS WHO WENT FROM THE UNITED STATES AS PART OF THE UNITED STATES' RELIEF EFFORT TO ASIA FOLLOWING THE CYCLONE NARGIS AND THE SZECHUAN CHINESE EARTHQUAKE. BATTALION CHIEF TERRY DIJONAIS [PH?], TASKFORCE LEADER RESCUE INSTRUCTOR CAPTAIN DON ROY, NOT WITH US IS BATTALION CHIEF TOM EWALL. CAPTAIN JOHN BOYLE, FIREFIGHTERS RICH ATWOOD, DEREK WOOLWEBBER, CARLO LOFERDO, HERB MAROQUIN, PAT LONG, MALCOLM DICKS AND ERIC SHORES. ON MAY 2ND, THE CYCLONE NARGIS, A CATEGORY FOUR, HIT THE MYANMAR COAST, AND CAUSED THE DEADLIEST NATURAL DISASTER IN THE COUNTRY'S HISTORY WITH 134,000 DEAD, 10 BILLION IN PROPERTY LOSSES, 2.3 MILLION HOMELESS. IT WOULD BE LIKE WIPING OUT THE ENTIRE SANTA CLARITA VALLEY, THAT WAS THE DEVASTATION THAT TOOK PLACE THERE. THEN TWO WEEKS AFTER THAT, A SECOND TRAGEDY STRUCK ON MAY 12TH, WHEN A 7.9 MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE DEVASTATED THE PROVINCE OF SZECHUAN. NEARLY 70,000 WERE DEAD, 375,000 INJURED, 18, ALMOST 19,000 ARE STILL MISSING. 4.8 MILLION PEOPLE ARE HOMELESS. $86 BILLION IN PROPERTY LOSSES, WHICH IS THE THIRD COSTLIEST WORLDWIDE DISASTER. IT WOULD BE LIKE THE CITY OF ALHAMBRA PLUS LA QUINATA BEING WIPED OUT. THIS EARTHQUAKE WAS FELT AS FAR AWAY AS RUSSIA AND VIETNAM. BUT IN THE WAKE OF THESE DISASTERS, OUR COUNTY FIRE DEPARTMENT WAS REQUESTED BY THE U.S. AGENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT TO PARTICIPATE IN A HUMANITARIAN SUPPORT MISSION, AND AS A RESULT, THEY CAME FORWARD VOLUNTEERED. THEY DELIVERED SEARCH AND RESCUE TOOLS, EQUIPMENT AND PROVIDED TECHNICAL EXPERTS WHO INSTRUCTED THE CHINESE SEARCH AND RESCUE PERSONNEL IN THE PROPER USE OF THOSE TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT. THEY DEPARTED ON THE EVENING OF MAY 19TH FROM MARCH AIR FORCE RESERVE BASE IN CALIFORNIA AND ARRIVED IN CHENGDU SHUANGLIU INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IN CHINA ON THE FOLLOWING WEDNESDAY. THE TEAM CONDUCTED A SERIES OF HANDS-ON SEARCHES AND RESCUE WORKSHOPS FOR APPROXIMATELY 40 MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC SECURITY AND FIRE BRIGADE IN THE SEISMIC DISASTER TEAM OF SZECHUAN PROVINCE. AS A RESULT OF THEIR HELP, THEY WERE ABLE TO PROVIDE GREATLY NEEDED ASSISTANCE. THE EQUIPMENT AND DONATION AND TRAINING WERE AIMED AT INCREASING THE CAPACITY OF THE CHINESE EARTHQUAKE RESPONDERS AS WELL AS FACILITATING TECHNICAL COOPERATION BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES DURING FUTURE EMERGENCIES. IN TOTAL, THE COUNTY DEPARTMENT DONATED 5 TONS OF VITAL TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT TO HELP IN THE SEARCH AND RESCUE EFFORT. ADDITIONALLY, MEMBERS OF THE TEAM PROVIDED LOGISTICAL SUPPORT FOR THE USE OF THE UNITED STATES OFFICE OF FOREIGN DISASTER ASSISTANCE IN WASHINGTON, D.C. AND THE U.S. PACIFIC COMMAND IN HAWAII. SO LET ME PRESENT THESE SCROLLS AT THIS TIME ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD. FIRST TERRY. DON ROY. JOHN BOYLE. RICH ATWOOD. DEREK? CARLO? HERB? PAT LONG? MALCOLM? THANK YOU. ERIC? MIKE, ARE YOU GOING TO SPEAK?

P. MICHAEL FREEMAN, FIRE CHIEF: THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR. MADAME CHAIR, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THIS RECOGNITION THIS MORNING. BUT JUST AS IMPORTANT, WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT FOR THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY FIRE DEPARTMENT. THE GOOD NEWS, THE MEN BEHIND ME THIS MORNING, ALONG WITH HUNDREDS OF THEIR COUNTERPARTS, MEN AND WOMEN IN THE DEPARTMENT, ARE SPECIALLY TRAINED AND EQUIPPED TO RESPOND TO MAJOR DISASTERS HERE IN THE UNITED STATES, AND THEY HAVE BEEN CERTIFIED BY THE UNITED NATIONS AS AN INTERNATIONAL SEARCH AND RESCUE TEAM. WE COULD NOT DO THAT WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT AND YOUR VISION TO BE SURE THAT LOS ANGELES COUNTY IS AS WELL-PREPARED AS POSSIBLE. WE'RE VERY PLEASED THAT THESE INDIVIDUALS WERE ABLE TO STEP UP AND HELP THE OFFICE OF FOREIGN DISASTER ASSISTANCE, WORKING THROUGH THE STATE DEPARTMENT TO HELP THESE OTHER COUNTRIES IN A HUMANITARIAN EFFORT. I'D LIKE TO ASK THE CHIEF DIJONAIS IF I MAY JUST TO SPEAK FOR A MOMENT. HE AND FOUR OTHER MEMBERS OF OUR URBAN SEARCH AND RESCUE TEAM DID MAKE THE TRIP TO CHINA TO CARRY THOSE TOOLS OVER THERE AND TO DO SOME TRAINING TO HELP WITH THE RECOVERY EFFORTS THERE. SO BATTALION CHIEF TERRY DIJONAIS. THANK YOU
CHIEF TERRY DIJONAIS: THANK YOU. I'D LIKE TO JUST SAY WHAT A PRIVILEGE IT IS TO REPRESENT THE DEPARTMENT, L.A. COUNTY AND THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT IN THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO CHINA AND PRESENT THOSE TOOLS TO CHINA. THEY RECEIVED THEM WITH GREAT HONOR AND THEY REALLY APPRECIATED THE EFFORTS THAT WE MADE AND THE BOND AND THE FRIENDSHIPS THAT WERE MADE THERE WILL BE FOREVER LASTING. WE ESTABLISHED RELATIONSHIPS THAT COULD ONLY BE DONE THROUGH YOUR COOPERATION AND YOUR GENEROSITY, BOARD OF SUPERVISORS. EVERY ONE OF US IS PROUD TO SERVE. IT IS SUCH A PRIVILEGE TO REPRESENT THE DEPARTMENT IN OUR JOB HERE. THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE.]

SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: HIS NAME WAS SPELLED WRONG. SHOULD WE GIVE HIM THIS AND YOU GIVE HIM ANOTHER ONE? OKAY.

SUP. ANTONOVICH: NOW WE HAVE LITTLE JAY JAY WHO IS NINE WEEKS OLD, LITTLE BOY WHO IS A POODLE MIX. AND THIS LITTLE BOY WOULD LIKE TO FIND A HOME. COULD EVEN BE A FIRE STATION.
SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: IS HE ADORABLE?
SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: LOOK, CHIEF? MICHAEL, HE WOULD LOVE-- LITTLE SMALLER THAN A DALMATIAN.
SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: ADORABLE.
SUP. ANTONOVICH: ANYWAY, HE'S LOOKING FOR A HOME. SO ANYBODY WOULD LIKE LITTLE JAY JAY. JUST A LITTLE BUTTER BALL.
SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: AFTER I RETIRE.
SUP. ANTONOVICH: WHEN THEY'RE THIS SIZE, THEY'RE EASIER TO CLEAN UP AFTER. 562-728-4644. JAY JAY ALSO HAS A LOT OF COUSINS AND RELATIVES THAT ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR LITTLE HOMES.
SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: WE WILL PROCEED WITH THE HEARINGS AS SOON AS SHE COMES BACK. MAYBE WE CAN TAKE UP-- DO YOU WANT TO DO THE HEARINGS FIRST? IT WOULD BE EASIER.
CLERK SACHI HAMAI: ON THE PUBLIC HEARING ITEMS, ITEMS 1 THROUGH 12, ALL THOSE WHO PLAN TO TESTIFY BEFORE THE BOARD, PLEASE STAND TO RAISE YOUR RIGHT HAND TO BE SWORN IN. IN THE TESTIMONY-- PLEASE STAND UP. IN THE TESTIMONY YOU MAY GIVE BEFORE THIS BOARD, DO YOU SOLEMNLY AFFIRM TO TELL THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH, SO HELP YOU GOD? THANK YOU. YOU MAY BE SEATED. ON PUBLIC HEARING ITEM NUMBER 1, THIS IS THE HEARING TO EXTEND INTERIM URGENCY ORDINANCE 2008-0027U TO TEMPORARILY REQUIRE A CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT IN THE CERRITOS ISLAND AREA IN CONNECTION WITH RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS. THERE IS A DEPARTMENT STATEMENT ON THIS MATTER, AND CORRESPONDENCE WAS RECEIVED.

SUSANNA FRANCO ROGAN: SUSANNA FRANCO ROGAN WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF REGIONAL PLANNING. THE ITEM BEFORE YOU IS A PUBLIC HEARING TO EXTEND INTERIM URGENCY ORDINANCE NUMBER 2008-0027 U. THE INTERIM ORDINANCE WAS ORIGINALLY ADOPTED ON JUNE 10TH, 2008, TO REGULATE DEVELOPMENT ON ALL RESIDENTIALLY ZONED PARCELS IN THE UNINCORPORATED COMMUNITY OF CERRITOS ISLAND BY REQUIRING A CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT PRIOR TO THE CONSTRUCTION OR MODIFICATION OF RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS THAT EXCEED 26 FEET IN HEIGHT AND FOR YARD MODIFICATIONS. INTERIM RESTRICTIONS WERE ADOPTED FOR A PERIOD OF 45 DAYS AND WILL EXPIRE ON JULY 25TH IF NOT EXTENDED. THE DEPARTMENT OF REGIONAL PLANNING RECOMMENDS THAT THE INTERIM URGENCY ORDINANCE BE EXTENDED BY AN ADDITIONAL 10-1/2 MONTHS TO JUNE 9TH, 2009, WHICH IS THE TIME ALLOWED UNDER THE GOVERNMENT CODE. THE GOVERNMENT CODE REQUIRES THAT AN EXTENSION TO AN URGENCY ORDINANCE BE DISCUSSED AT A DEWEY NOTICED PUBLIC HEARING AND THAT YOUR BOARD, AFTER HEARING PUBLIC COMMENT, APPROVE THE EXTENSION BY A MINIMUM FOUR-FIFTHS VOTE A NEWSPAPER ADVERTISEMENT WAS PLACED TO PROVIDE NOTICE OF TODAY'S HEARING AND NOTICES WERE MAILED TO ADDRESSES WITHIN 500- FOOT RADIUS OF THE CERRITOS ISLAND COMMUNITY. DURING THE NEXT 10 1/2 MONTHS, A ZONING STUDY THAT ADDRESSES THE NEED FOR CHANGES TO THE COUNTY ZONING CODE WOULD BE COMPLETED, AND IF NEEDED, A POSSIBLE PERMANENT ORDINANCE WOULD BE DEVELOPED. THE PERMANENT ORDINANCE WOULD BE AN AMENDMENT TO THE ZONING CODE. IT WOULD NEED TO GO THROUGH THE REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION AND BOARD OF SUPERVISORS' PUBLIC HEARING PROCESS. REGIONAL PLANNING STAFF THEREFORE RECOMMENDS THAT AT THE CONCLUSION OF YOUR DISCUSSION, YOU APPROVE THE EXTENSION OF INTERIM URGENCY ORDINANCE NUMBER 2008-0027U FOR A FURTHER 10 1/2 MONTHS TO ALLOW THE DEPARTMENT TO COMPLETE A ZONING STUDY AND, IF NEEDED, PREPARE A DRAFT PERMANENT REVISION TO THE ZONING CODE RELATED TO RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE AFFECTED AREA. THANK YOU.

SUP. KNABE: MADAME CHAIR?
SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: YES.
SUP. KNABE: WE HAVE SOME SPEAKERS THAT SIGNED UP, BUT I JUST WOULD WANT TO SPEAK TO THE FIND THAT THE URGENCY ORDINANCE IS REALLY NEEDED TO PREVENT SOME RESULTS THAT ARE INCONSISTENT WITH FUTURE ZONING CONTROLS THAT WE MAY NEED IN THE AREA. I KNOW THE PROCESS WAS SET UP IN PLACE TO DEAL WITH IT IN A DIFFERENT WAY, BUT OBVIOUSLY THIS AREA IS UNIQUE. AND, REALLY, WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO ADDRESS THE OVERBUILDING ON SMALL UNDERSIZED LOTS IN THIS PARTICULAR AREA. WHILE IT'S NICE TO HAVE SOME OF THIS AREA REBUILT, OBVIOUSLY IT CAN GO THE OTHER WAY, AS WELL. SO IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE KEEP THIS IN PLACE FOR THE NEXT 10 1/2 MONTHS WHILE THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT ADDRESSES ALL THE ISSUES THAT NEED TO BE, TO BE CONSISTENT WITH WHAT WE NEED TO DO IN THE UNINCORPORATED AREA BUT ALSO TO BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR TO THE CITY OF CERRITOS, AS WELL, TOO.

SUP. BURKE, CHAIR: THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE SIGNED UP HAVE ALL BEEN IN FAVOR. I'LL CALL ROBERT A. LOPEZ, LUIS TERRAZAS, AND CHARLIE ARA. DO YOU WISH TO SPEAK? COME FORWARD, PLEASE.
