You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
Add a "Find" option in the menu. None is currently supported.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
I can't believe search function is really missing, however I can't find it.
Why the bug is still marked as unconfimed?
This is very irritating that such a basic feature is missing. l had to install
evince just for the find function, but it's not as fast nor as stable.
Can someone with the right permissions please change the status to confirmed?
Note that the 3rd party port of Evince provides this functionality:
Nokia *thinks* about adding Search functionality to the built-in PDF viewer for
Fremantle, but this is not yet decided.
Assigning to myself so I look it up again later.
Update: There's no mention of Search functionality in the Fremantle Spec for
the PDF reader so I assume that it's not planned to add this functionality for
Indeed, the current Fremantle build of PDF Reader doesn't have a search
fyi this component is basically a Diablo port in Fremantle and it will be
completely rewritten for Harmattan.
Nokia does NOT plan to fix this for the Maemo5 PDF viewer as the Maemo 5 User
Interface is considered stable by Nokia.
This will be FIXED for the Harmattan PDF viewer ("Harmattan" is the codename of
the software version after Maemo 5).
I don't see this being resolved, until "harmathan" is released for the N900.
It can only be marked resolved if the search function is made availble.
Otherwise it should be unresolved...
It is RESOLVED WONTFIX for Maemo5 and RESOLVED FIXED for Harmattan.
