Advanced Searching with Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader

Advanced Searching with Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader

Use the “advanced search” feature in Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader to identify all of the places where a specific word or phrase appears within the Compendium or within specific chapters. To conduct an advanced search, follow these steps:

Step 1:

• Save a copy of the entire Compendium or a specific chapter to your desktop.

Step 2:

• Open the document using Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.

Step 3:

• Select “Edit” from the toolbar at the top of your screen and then select “Advanced

search” from the drop-down menu. In the alternative, you may press Shift+Ctrl+ F to activate the advanced search feature. A box labeled “Search” will appear on the left side of your screen.

Step 4:

• Enter the word or phrase you would like to find in the box marked “What word or phrase would you like to search for?” To search for specific provisions of the Copyright Act, U.S. Copyright Office regulations, or the Compendium, enter the

section number you would like to find, such as “409 (1)” or “202.1.”

Step 5:

• Click the “Search” button. If the search term appears within the document, it will appear in a box labeled “Results,” along with a brief excerpt from each sentence where that term appears. If the search term does not appear within the document the following message will appear: “0 document(s) with 0 instance(s).” To conduct another search click the “New Search” button. To close the advanced search feature, click the “x” that appears in the upper right corner of the Search box.
