    Searching PDF's in Sharepoint 2010

    Hi All

    Does anyone know how you can set up Sharepoint 2010 to search the text within a PDF file? It currently works with MS Word etc but at the moment only searches the filename of the PDF rather than the text.

    Cheers

    Thanks. Tried every step in that guide but the search still does not show the text from within a PDF.

    Not officially but in the link above the writer added

    "At time of writing (March 2010), Adobe has published PDF iFilter 9 for 64-bit applications, tested on SharePoint 2007 but not yet listed as tested on SharePoint 2010. So far, it is working fine on my builds of SharePoint 2010 (Beta versions)"

    When clicking on a PDF within sharepoint it prompts you to save the file locally. We are looking at forcing this to open the PDF within the browser like out external website.
