Quote from DIU at Evernote: "Also, sometimes the PDFs just aren't properly formatted, or they're formatted differently than we expect. Because of the hundreds (or maybe even thousands) of PDF generation software that all behave a little differently, it isn't always possible to read/render them the same way. I've been told by people much smarter than me that PDF generation is the easy part and rendering properly is the hard part. One suspicion that I have (albeit unconfirmed) is that these might just be PDFs that are composed in a way that is unexpected and make certain assumptions that we're not able to account for. If that's the case, there might not be much we can do about it. " Im a newbie Premium User here but i'm not liking at all what I'm reading about this problem. Hey I like Evernote for the record but this is very BIG problem and needs to be taken on directly with full force. Accurately searching .PDF files is EVERYTHING and absolutley central to why I think people want to use and implement Evernote. Why create a note and send it into the cloud if you can't accurately find it or a word within it later? That said I'm having the same problem. I search for a word and the highlight box shows up nowhere near the actual location of the word. Not with a .PDF generated from one of the "thousands of generators" out there but with a Scansnap 1500 and the "Scan to Evernote" option provided by Evernote. If Adobe comes up with a similarly priced cloud based product as Evernote there could be in trouble in Evernote-land as the search functions within Adobe (with the same .pdf files) do not exhibit these problems. For DIU to say there "might not not be much we can do about it" well all I can say is that's not exactly how I would want one of my employees to take on a problem so important to so many users AND so close to WHY people like Evernote. I hope Evernote takes the time to actually read the forums to see how many people are having this problem. It is as several people have described "a deal breaker".
