Please please add text (content) search for PDF files

#1 Post by mgroen » 17.02.2020, 10:46

Could FC please support searching through contents of PDF files?

Example:
I search for "this text is in a pdf file", in a collection of .PDF files in C:\documents

C:\documents contains bunch of pdf files.

Search is started. FC reports 0 files found.
While the text is in a pdf file in c:\documents.

If I use Adobe Acrobat Reader search function (Cntrl-Shift-F) the file is found.
