How to Effectively Search PDF Files
As known, File Search Assistant (FSA) offers a variety of additional
search features, i.e. filters that deliver precise search results. Thus, it
is recommended to use information of size, date and type of missing files,
as well as specify possible locations of lost documents. FSA uses this
information to make search procedure faster and more convenient for users,
even those without experience in operating various applications.
Very often, users look for Adobe pdf documents which are popular all over
the world. Perhaps, it is impossible to find a computer without Adobe PDF
reader installed. This extension is widely used for a variety of business
and educational documents. The majority of product descriptions and
pricelists, business offers and reports are created as pdf documents. No
wonder that pdf docs are among commonly missing files. Luckily, File Search
Assistant can easily solve the problem of missing pdf docs. This is a short
review of FSA features to search pdf documents.
- In case a user is aware of approximate size of missing pdf files it
is recommended to apply search by size. In fact, the majority of simple
pdf docs are all under 5-10MB. As a result, FSA may look for files of
exact size or in certain size range.
- It goes without saying that if a user needs to find Adobe pdf file,
customized search is highly recommended. FSA will ignore files having
other extensions. As known, certain documents may contain the same
search word. Thus, instead of getting a dozen of docs in search results
list, FSA will offer only docs with pdf extension.
- Search pdf by date. Often, users remember when they last accessed
documents or when missing docs where created. This information is rather
helpful for File Search Assistant. In such a way, search results will be
narrowed down. For instance, it is easy to look for recently opened
files. Moreover, FSA users can even specify time periods.
- Conversion of pdf and review of search results. File Search
Assistant has a range of built-in converters which make it possible to
preview search result right in software interface. Users should make
sure pdf converter is on (Text filters tab). It is convenient to be able
to preview search results, especially if many pdf files contain target
search words. There is no need to open all the files. The preview pane
in the bottom solves this problem.
