Dear All, it was confirmed in several discussions, e.g. , that the full-text search is a feature offered solely by Adobe Acrobat, which employs a special undocumented format for this.
Now this feature has turned out to be offered also by other tool!  It seems to be driven by an independent non-Adobe PDF library. Reverse engineered? If it is legal, it would be great to implement this also into FOP :-) When FOP produces big PDFs, the search is very slow. It can be improved by post-processing in the Acrobat, but it cannot be automated and included into the generating workflow.
