I had been using KPDF for its ability to search single words or sentences, then cut and save them. Acrobat will only save whole pages, and neither xpdf nor Document Viewer will save single words or sentences.

There is a bug in okular such that, after a few searches, it begins to go back to the beginning, or some other point, and refuse to find anything else, unless you close it, then get into the program and document again, then move down past the point where it stopped searching, and begin once more.

Trying to search a document of any length this way is very tiresome.

However, I called up one of the PDFs I've been working on into Gwenview, which looks a lot like okular.

However, it seems to search properly, with no bugs.

I've been looking through the forum, and some people have had troubles with okular, though not, apparently the same as mine.

Can anyone say if this problem has been mentioned, and if anyone is working on it?

Thanks,

JimW
