When I search for a term like "formation water", preview returns everything starting with formation and not the term "formation water". How can I search for a phrase in Preview?

enter image description here

  • Without double quotes, the query formation water returns every page that contain both the words formation and water, regardless of how they are scattered around the page. – epimorphic Nov 9 '14 at 0:49

Just like you would with a Google search, use the double quotes operator to tell Preview the result must be an exact match.

In your case, for example, typing "formation water" should yield the desired result.
