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.

HE WAS PRESIDENT OF THE CONSULAR PRESS ORGANIZATION AND CO-CHAIR OF THE CONSULAR ADVISORY BOARD OF THE PACIFIC COUNCIL. HE SERVED AS THE SECRETARY OF THE LOS ANGELES CONSULAR CORPS AND WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN THE RECENT REVAMPING OF THAT ORGANIZATION. IN AUGUST THE CONSUL GENERAL WILL BE RETURNING TO BELGIUM. HE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED. BUT HE WILL BECOME THE MINISTER'S DIRECTOR OF PRESS AND COMMUNICATIONS. HE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED BY ALL OF US. AND ON BEHALF OF THE 10.3 MILLION RESIDENTS OF THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES, THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS DOES HEREBY EXTEND OUR BEST WISHES AND CONTINUED SUPPORT. AND WE'D LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE. [APPLAUSE.]

HON. RUDI VEESTRAETEN: THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND IT'S FOR ME AN HONOR AND A REAL PLEASURE TO BE HERE. YOU KNOW, AFTER FOUR YEARS IN LOS ANGELES, I FEEL LIKE I HAVE HALF BECOME-- I BELONG HERE. WHEN MY STAFF GAVE ME A FAREWELL GIFT, IT'S A COUPLE OF CUFF LINKS WITH A MAP OF THE COUNTY. SO I'M WEARING IT WITH PRIDE. I CAN SAY AFTER FOUR YEARS TODAY: ICH BIN EIN ANGELINO. AND ALSO I SAY THIS, I HAVE NOW ALMOST 34 YEARS OF CAREER BEHIND ME AND A FEW YEARS LEFT TO GO. AND FROM THE BEGINNING, I HAVE REALLY BEEN TRYING TO BE-- TO PROMOTE THE IDEA OF INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN ALL MY JOBS I DID THROUGHOUT THESE 30 YEARS, INCLUDING, OF COURSE, IN LOS ANGELES. AND I HOPE THAT THIS SPIRIT OF INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION, WE CALL THAT MULTILATERALISM, THAT IT WILL BE CONTINUE TO THRIVE AND THAT IT WILL BE SOMETHING WE CAN ALL ENJOY. THERE'S SOME CLOUDS ON THE HORIZON ALL THE TIME AND MAYBE MORE TODAY THAN THERE WERE IN THE PAST, BUT I BELIEVE THAT THIS IS THE FUTURE OF THIS WORLD. I THINK THAT IF WE REALLY WORK TOGETHER BETWEEN NATIONS, THAT WE CAN MAKE THE WORLD GREAT AGAIN. THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE.]
SUP. HILDA SOLIS, CHAIR: MEMBERS?

SUP. KNABE: THANK YOU, MADAME CHAIR, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. I HAVE A VERY SPECIAL PRESENTATION TODAY. AND A SAD ONE, AS WELL, TOO. AND WITH OUR PRESENTATION ON THE DISABILITIES COMMISSION AWARD WINNERS TODAY, I THOUGHT IT VERY APPROPRIATE, AS WELL. IN MY MANY YEARS OF PUBLIC SERVICE, I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO MEET SOME EXCEPTIONAL LEADERS, BUT THERE IS ONE LEADER THAT IS VERY SPECIAL TO ME, ONE OF MY SHE-ROES, ONE I'LL NEVER FORGET AND THAT'S WENDY WELT NARROW. AM I RIGHT? I SAY THAT BECAUSE SHE'S MARRIED, HAS SOME KIDS. BUT WHEN SHE FIRST BECAME MY APPOINTEE SHE WAS ONLY 19 YEARS OLD. AND SHE'S BEEN A COMMISSIONER ON DISABILITIES COMMISSION FOR 18 YEARS REPRESENTING ME. AND I'VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF WATCHING THIS REMARKABLE WOMAN DEVELOP FROM A TEENAGED STUDENT AT LONG BEACH CITY COLLEGE TO THE LOVING WIFE OF HUSBAND ANTHONY AND HER TWO CHILDREN KAITLYN AND JEREMY. I JUST FOUND OUT KAITLYN'S IN SIXTH GRADE, RIGHT? I'M GETTING OLD. BUT THE FIRST TIME I MET HER, I WAS TAKEN BY HER ZEST FOR LIFE AND HER GENUINE PASSION FOR HELPING OTHERS, ESPECIALLY PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES. IN SPITE OF SOME VERY DIFFICULT CHALLENGES, SHE HAS ALWAYS APPROACHED LIFE WITH A SMILE SO WARM AND GENUINE THAT IT'S HARD NOT TO SMILE BACK. SINCE BIRTH, SHE HAS LACKED BOTH ARMS AND LEGS, BUT THAT HASN'T PUT A DAMPER ON HER LOVE FOR LIFE. SHE KNEW EARLY ON THAT HER LIFE'S CALLING WAS ADVOCATE FOR THE RIGHTS OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES AND TO INSPIRE THEM TO NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP, TO NEVER LET A DISABILITY STAND IN THE WAY OF THEIR DREAMS. FOR THOSE WHO HAVE KNOWN AND LOVED HER, WE WILL MISS HER AS SHE PURSUES A DREAM SHE'S HAD FOR HER CHILDREN. SHE AND HER FAMILY WILL BE BUYING THEIR FIRST HOME AND ARE VERY THRILLED ABOUT THAT BUT ARE MOVING OUT OF THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES. I'M ALSO DELIGHTED TO TELL YOU THAT SHE'S STARTING HER MASTER'S PROGRAM IN PSYCHOLOGY THIS YEAR WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF LAUNCHING A CAREER AS A COUNSELOR. I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, I KNOW YOU'RE GOING TO BE A GREAT ONE. YES, WE'LL TRULY MISS HER AND SHE'S BEEN MY INSPIRATION AND FRIEND FOR THESE OH SO MANY YEARS. THE RESIDENTS OF THE COUNTY AND MYSELF HAVE BEEN BLESSED TO HAVE WENDY IN OUR LIFE TO INSPIRE OTHERS AND TO LEAD OUR EFFORTS FOR THOSE WITH DISABILITIES TO BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS. SO ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD AND THE 10-1/2 MILLION RESIDENTS OF THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES, A HEARTFELT THANKS, WENDY, FOR YOUR SERVICE OF 18 YEARS AS A MEMBER OF THE DISABILITIES COMMISSION. WE'RE SO PROUD OF YOU. I ADORE YOU. [APPLAUSE.]

WENDY WELT NARRO: IT'S BEEN SUCH AN HONOR, SIR. THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR, AND IT WAS A VERY HARD CHOICE TO LEAVE AND I'M GOING TO MISS YOU AND MISS EVERYBODY ELSE. AND THANK YOU SO MUCH. [APPLAUSE.]
