PDF Search inside a confluence page exists?!

Hello,

from a confluence page,

when I attach a pdf file and open it in any browsers

the document is displayed correctly.

The problem is that there's no search function (or even the popular shortcut command CTRL+F) does not exist.

 

Thanks already

Cheers
L

Not working for me on MacOS.  Not in either Firefox or Chrome.  Any help?

If there were any way to access this functionality besides a keystroke, I could at least confirm whether the feature is missing, or whether I am just having difficulty accessing it.

Just checked: not working in Windows either. Did something change?

Hi,

which Browser do you use? In Chrome, CTRL+F is working fine with the displayed PDF.

Hi Thomas, 

yep it works to me as well.

I noticed that it was a keyboard's keystroke problem.

Sorry for that!

Thx u 

Ludo

No problem, you're welcome  :-)

Also trying to search while viewing an attached PDF document. Ctrl+F does not work, at least not in Google Chrome, and there is no magnifier class to click on. Having to download is a bit stupid, don't you think?
