Basic Searching with Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader

The “find” feature in Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader allows users to search for specific words or phrases within the entire Compendium or within specific chapters. To conduct a basic search, follow these steps:

Step 1:

• Select “Edit” from the toolbar at the top of your screen, and then select “Find” from the drop-down menu. In the alternative, you may press Ctrl+ F to activate the Find feature. A box labeled “Find” will appear on your screen.

Step 2:

• Enter the word or phrase you would like to find in the box labeled Find. 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 3:

• Click the “previous” or “next” button. If the search term appears within the document it will be highlighted on your screen. If the search term appears

elsewhere within the same document you may find it by clicking the “previous” or “next” buttons again. If the search term does not appear within the document the following message will appear: “Reader has finished searching the document. No matches were found.” To close the Find feature, click the “x” that appears in the upper right corner of that box.
