Trouble in finding properties (languages mixture)

Post by sanferno » 2016 Jun 04, 15:58

Hi,

This morning, searching for some text inside PDF (using "Contents" toolbar in simple mode) works awesome. The problem begins when I try to look for "Contents" property both in adavanced and detective modes. Since my system is in Spanish, some properties show their name in Spanish and others in English. This a bit meshy because I cannot find "Contents" nor "Contenidos" (same thing but in Spanish). It is not a major problem because I can use the simple mode toolbar but, what if I accidentally close this toolbar?... It seems that I will have trouble in recovering it.

contents searching is not available in detective mode. YOu can search for everything but contents. However English names are always available when you try to locate a property. Have you ever watched the intro demo video?

As you have said, "contents" works for Advanced and Simple modes, but not for Detective. I cannot understand why, but there must be a reasonable answer. Thanks :wink:

because it is too complex to figure out if contents need to be evaluated and it is too expensive to check contents every time
desktop detective is a victim of its own flexibility and complexity. One day it may change...

Well, until that day, IMHO I think most of us can continue our lives perfectly as it is. So you may employ your time in more significant things :beer:
