FS#1004 - QCAD e-book not searchable in Preview, Acrobat

I just downloaded QCAD and bought the doc that goes with it. Lo and behold, I find that I cannot search the doc in Preview (Acrorbat Reader too!)! So I paid extra for doc that might be argued should come with a product (although its hard to complain about the price) and then I cannot even search it electronically? There is just everything wrong with that in the year 2014! Please fix as it is extremely inefficient and time consuming to not have electronic search capability.

I cannot reproduce this problem here. I can search through the e-book with both Preview and Acrobat Reader.

Are you saving the PDF file directly with your browser or are you opening it with some browser plugin and then use a File - Save function or similar? Just a hunch, but I can imagine that this might cause such a problem.

Note that there is also a user reference manual included with QCAD (Help - User Manual). The user reference manual contains short descriptions and instructions for most tools available in QCAD while the e-book is a tutorial style introduction to QCAD and CAD techniques in general.
