Is there in Android an equivalent of the control + F search in texts and OCR PDF? In browser we have "find in page" options. But for PDF I didn't find such option. Is there shortcuts to make such search as we can make with the dashboard in PC?

    It depends on the app you are using to open PDF files. Commented Aug 15, 2019 at 16:01

Are you using Google's PDF viewer? If so, there should be a magnifying glass on the top right where you can search from.

  • Fine. Thanks so much. I often use Adobe Acrobat.

Based on your comment that you often use Adobe Acrobat, the app offers the same process as Google's PDF viewer. When reading a document, you must click the magnifier. enter image description here

You can then enter the word(s) you are looking for on the document.
