Find feature freezes Acrobat and Reader
Posted on 2011-09-09
I have an end user who is having a problem using Find (ctrl + F) within Adobe Acrobat and Reader. Anytime he tries to search a PDF for a word the program will find the first instance of the word, but if he clicks on the "Next" Arrow or "Previous" Arrow the program freezes and has to be killed in Task Manager. The same happens if he uses the "Search" feature as well.
He is running Windows 7 64 bit, Acrobat 9.0 with full updates, and Reader X with full updates.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
