Search and Highlight Text in PDF
Have you ever needed to search a certain word or phrase in your document stored in your Box?
The Search tool is one of PDFfiller’s latest enhancements. Using this tool, you can find a word or a phrase in a PDF or Word document stored in your Box. Now you will save even more time editing or annotating your attachments because the search tool not only finds words, but also enables you to highlight them.

Type the text you want to find in the search field. The counter will show you the total number of search terms found in the document and the ordinal number of the current search term. The currently selected search term is highlighted in green, the others in red.
To jump to the next found term, click the down arrow; to go to the previous instance, click the up arrow.
