iPad: text search in PDFs

This app is very useful. If you added the capability to search for text in PDF attachments it'd be even better.
Thanks!

Re: iPad: text search in PDFs

The ability of searching the text in PDFs attached to EndNote records in the iPad app is already implemented. You just need to be sure you are searching "Everything." Tap in the search box and a row of buttons will display below the search field - Title, Author, Publication, and Everything are your chocies - select "Everything" to be sure that searches apply to attached PDFs.

Re: iPad: text search in PDFs

Sorry I wasn't specific.  I had noticed it was possible to search for text in all pdfs at once, however I'd like to be able to search within a single pdf at a time.

 

Thanks

Agreed. In the PC version while in a single PDF I can do a text search. The iPad app needs this desperately.

Re: iPad: text search in PDFs

I totally agree, just wanted to post the same issue. Mendeley has a simple search functionality already. but to be honest from a superior software I would actually expect an advanced search functionality searching across multiple references and attachments. more specifically, searching for keywords or phrases I highlighted before sounds most useful since these were the parts I was interested in most previously. I mean, you have all the data about our references online anyway, so why not analyzing it? Anyway, a basic search functionality to search within the PDF manually would be a start...
