Can't select PDF text when search is active


#1

Hi,

Just noticed that when you use the PDF annotator to search you cannot select text when the search is “active”. So you need to kill the search, select and then re-search. This is in Chrome on a Chromebook.

Weird. Now it works. Hmmmm… I tried multiple times before posting this. Odd…

Hoookay… Sorry for so many posts. So selection works if your cursor is at the beginning or the end of a paragraph. If you select within a paragraph the behavior is as described, i.e. it doesn’t work.

Hmm, I do not see this behavior. Would you mind sending the pdf in question to jason@paperpile.com along with your search term?
