You can quickly locate text in an open DWF file by searching for tabular data, markups, text on 2D sheets, objects, sheet names, and their properties. Found results are shown in a convenient list, enabling you to click a result to display the found text or associated object on the canvas or in a palette.
By default, the entire DWF file is searched for the term you enter in thedrop-down list. You can narrow your search by clicking the button in the palette.
In some cases, when a DWF file is published, a font is published as geometry. Consequently, although content appears to be text in the DWF file, it is not. As a result, geometric representations of text are not found.
Another instance when text may not be found is when PDF and image files are opened in Design Review. All text and geometry in the source file is rasterized in the resultant DWF file. Consequently, text in such files cannot be searched.
In other cases, Design Review may be unable to locate text accurately. On those occasions, a light blue “A” icon is shown in the list and an indicator is shown on the canvas the general area on the sheet where text is found. This indicator is not printed, and is only visible while the palette is open.
