I recently updated my OS to Sierra. The new Preview seems to have some serious bugs for searching words inside a document.
1st problem: certain words are not found despite Adobe acrobat reader is perfectly able to find them.
2nd problem: the bar to the right displays the pages where the word has been found. The pages are arranged in an apparently random order.
Is there a way to fix these issues?
Actually I solved the second problem. Results where sorted by search rank instead of page order. I still have the first problem though.
EDIT I am quite surprised this post has received so little attention. I use the find utility really often, and I have now had to switch to adobe as the standard program to open PDF.
I've also tried reindexing the spotlight but it did not fix it.
