  • Cannot Search For Punctuation

    Hi. I am using FoxIt Reader Version: FoxIt will not allow me to search for most punctuation marks. I am able to search the text of the document for words without any problem so I know the PDF is text-based, not scanned or image-based. However, when I search for punctuation that I can clearly see in the document, such as semicolons, colons, etc, it cannot find any results. Oddly, it will only find SOME periods, but not all of them. Can anyone assist me with this? Thank you!

    Hi connah0047,

    Do you encounter the same issue on all pdf files? Could you send us a pdf file which has the issue to have a check?
