How do I search through interactive PDF's? (I can't search through the words I type in.)

Find and replace text in a PDF The Find toolbar searches the currently open PDF. You can selectively replace the search term with alternative text. You replace text one instance at a time. You cannot make a global change throughout a PDF or across multiple PDFs. Choose Edit > Find (Ctrl/Command+F). Type the text you want to search for in the text box on the Find toolbar. To replace text, click Replace With to expand the toolbar, then type the replacement text in the Replace With text box. (Optional) Click the arrow (showing below symbol) next to the text box and choose one or more of the following. Whole Words Only Finds only occurrences of the complete word you type in the text box. For example, if you search for the word stick, the words tick and sticky aren’t found. Case-Sensitive Finds only occurrences of the words that match the capitalization you type. For example, if you search for the word Web, the words web and WEB aren’t found. Include Bookmarks Also searches the text in the Bookmarks panel. Include Comments Also searches the text of any comments. Click Next. Type In Pdf jumps to the first instance of the search term, which appears highlighted. Click Replace to change the highlighted text, or click Next to go to the next instance of the search term. Alternatively, click Previous to go back to the previous instance of the search term.
