I've been stumped on figuring out how to be able to search for a string of text within a PDF attachment that has been sent or received in Outlook version 1905 (Build 11629).
I have tried repairing Office 365 online, installing Adobe iFilter 64 link to download, Foxit iFilter, enabling the legacy Windows Indexing Service within the "turn Windows features on or off", all to no avail.
The system I'm on is running Windows 7 Professional.

yes. it looks like in Adobe you can go to Edit->Preferences and choose to enable PDF Thumbnail viewing. that might work. I guess without Adobe you can't use that feature and I am not living with adobe, EDGE is fine for me.
