I have an Acer Iconia Tab.

I would like to search some PDFs (RPG reference documents) for "whole words", as normal search doesn't properly find short words.

Is it possible with the Adobe Reader on Android? If so, how?

(Note: I just updated it a few days ago, and I can't seem to find any such option.)

Adobe Reader does not seem to have that feature.

Why not try ezPDF Reader? It supports whole word searches.

  • Thanks that was an excellent recommendation. ezPDF seems faster than Adobe Reader too.
