I wanted to search inside a PDF with Adobe Acrobat Reader for MacOS (or the one built in with MacOS). I want to search, for example, for the capital letter "U".

Is it possible and, if yes, how?

A tutorial online here for Adobe Acrobat Reader indicates in step 4 how to do a case-sensitive search, which is what you're looking for.

Press Ctrl-F to start a search in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Enter the letter U and then tick (select) the check-box next to "Case-Sensitive" search. Press the Search button to start the search.

    Answers on Ask Different need to be more than just a link. It's okay to include a link, but please summarize or excerpt it in the answer. The idea is to make the answer stand alone.
