I would like to ask if you encountered similar error, and what have you done to solve it.
When I open multiple PDF files in Preview ( mainly text), and then search for some common substring like building, typing firstly b, then u, then i, then l, and usually preview crashes after typing 4-5 characters.
I emphasize I have opened 10-13 pdfs,(one is max 2 pages long), and it crashes everytime when I try to search by aforementioned method. Has it happened to you and how did you solve it? I submited a bug report to apple anyway.
EDIT: added code

I tried to reinstall preview using this guide https://superuser.com/questions/835035/preview-app-always-crashes?newreg=a67db93698f84d459728455bb530cad9 from fresh Yosemite installation, without any result, it still crashes.
EDIT: Seems like this is not only related to text searching: preview crashing with yosemite and mavericks
