    MortenZdk, According to your description,I have submitted the suggestion "Provide a much better way to locate to the search result" as a new feature to our product management team's reference with suggestion ID#PHANTOM-17424.

    For your current workaround,please help to do the following procedures to locate the search result when you try to search texts in small size:
    1:Please set a more eye-catching color for the search result highlighting. Please refer to this article to know how to do that.
    2:Choose to zoom in on the PDF page by setting a relatively large zoom level, such as the setting shown in the following screenshot:‚Äč
    Click image for larger version  Name:	zoom level.png Views:	0 Size:	58.4 KB ID:	191032
    3:Then please try to search keywords in the right-hand search panel, you will find that Foxit PDF Editor will automatically switch to the location of the searched result when you click on one of the searched results.

    Any further questions or concerns,please contact us again at any time.

  • Locate search result feature for high density pages

    I sometimes use PDF Reader for electronics schematics, where the can be a lot of small text.

    When search (Ctrl-Shift-F) has found a location, the page is show, and the text is shown with blue markup.

    If the text is small, and maybe short, and there is a lot of text on the page, it can be difficult to spot the location of the found text.

    An example can be seen if searching in the attached file "Schematic_Raspberry_Pi.pdf" for the text "GRN".

    It would be nice if there was some way to locate that search result, for example a feature where some red rings where generated around the result, or some auto zoom feature.
