Searching within a Searchable PDF

I’m new to Tropy, and the photos I’m working with I’ve converted to searchable PDFs with Adobe Acrobat. Is there a way in Tropy to search these searchable PDFs? It seems that the search bar really only pulls from the metadata & tags - I can’t quite figure out how I might search within the PDF itself, let alone have these results included when I also search across metadata and tags. Thanks in advance!

Currently there’s no way to search for text in PDFs. We’re considering to optionally create a note for each PDF page with the page’s text content, but it’s not certain yet that we’ll go that way.

Ok, thank you, that’s helpful to know.

Just use pdf.js and a quickviewer with PDF support…

All the work are already done for you…
