A better Snippet feature

If I am searching for a certain word in a document, the current snippet feature only shows incomplete sentences around that word. I currently have to open that document and search for the word inside it again. If you take just the the whole (pdf doc) and you have scanned it whole, can you display at least the whole text of the document and than highlight the words in it. This way I don't even have to open the document to select and copy the sentence or paragraph that my search word is in. If you can't do it in snippets, can I at least have the option to open the (only text) of the document.

Hi dario,
the text snippet that you view in the search is just an extract of the text indexed to confirm that the search has found correctly the searched words (Like Google).

If you want to download all the text extracted and indexed you must first choose "Open in Folder" from the contextual menu (right click), then click database icon on the left of the document. (Image_01)

Otherwise you can launch the preview of the document from the menu, repeat the search on the viewwer then cut & paste the snippet that you need. (Image_02) (Image_03)

This last option is available on the commercial editions of the product which includes an advanced PDF viewer.

However we will consider the suggestion, because we pay close attention to proposals that come from the user community.

Best regards
