Finding Words

You can use the Find command to find a complete word or part of a word in the current PDF document. Acrobat Reader looks for the word by reading every word on every page in the file, including text in form fields.


To find a word using the Find command:


  1. Click the Find button (Binoculars), or choose Edit > Find.

  2. Enter the text to find in the text box.

  3. Select search options if necessary:

Match Whole Word Only finds only occurrences of the complete word you enter in the box. For example, if you search for the word stick, the words tick and sticky will not be highlighted.
Match Case finds only words that contain exactly the same capitalization you enter in the box.
Find Backwards starts the search from the current page and goes backwards through the document.

  1. Click Find. Acrobat Reader finds the next occurrence of the word.



To find the next occurrence of the word, Do one of the following:

Choose Edit > Find Again

Reopen the find dialog box, and click Find Again.

(The word must already be in the Find text box.)


Copying and pasting text and graphics to another application
You can select text or a graphic in a PDF document, copy it to the Clipboard, and paste it into another application such as a word processor. You can also paste text into a PDF document note or into a bookmark. Once the selected text or graphic is on the Clipboard, you can switch to another application and paste it into another document.
Note: If a font copied from a PDF document is not available on the system displaying the copied text, the font cannot be preserved. A default font is substituted.

To select and copy it to the clipboard:

  1. Select the text tool T, and do one of the following:

To select a line of text, select the first letter of the sentence or phrase and drag to

the last letter.


To select multiple columns of text (horizontally), hold down Ctrl+Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) as you drag across the width of the document.

To select a column of text (vertically), Hold down Ctrl+Alt (Windows) or Option+Command (Mac OS) as you drag the length of the document.

To select all the text on the page, choose Edit > Select All. In single page mode, all the text on the current page is selected. In Continuous or Continuous – facing mode, most of the text in the document is selected. When you release the mouse button, the selected text is highlighted. To deselect the text and start over, click anywhere outside the selected text.

The Select All command will not select all the text in the document. A workaround for this (Windows) is to use the Edit > Copy command. Choose Edit > Copy to copy the selected text to the clipboard.




  1. To view the text, choose Window > Show Clipboard

In Windows 95, the Clipboard Viewer is not installed by default and you cannot use the Show Clipboard command until it is installed. To install the Clipboard Viewer, Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs, and then click the Windows Setup tab. Double-click Accessories, check Clipboard Viewer, and click OK.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WOULD YOU PLEASE STAND FOR THIS MORNING'S INVOCATION?
REV. GERARD LECOMTE: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, LET US ASK FOR GOD'S BLESSING. AND I WOULD LIKE TO DO THIS BLESSING WITH A SMALL REFLECTION ABOUT SOMETHING WHICH WAS VERY IMPORTANT IN MY FAMILY ABOUT BREAD AND CONSIDERING OUR LIFE AND WHAT WE HAVE TO DO FROM THE SYMBOL OF BREAD. WE USED TO HAVE BREAD AND WE HAD TO TAKE BREAD TO PUT IT ON OUR TABLE. WE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE TAKEN FROM THIS WORLD TO SERVE. WE ARE TAKEN TO BE GIVEN TO PEOPLE SO WE HAVE TO BE SO PROUD OF HAVING ELECTED, OF HAVING BEEN TOGETHER, OF OUR BEING GATHERED TO TAKE CARE OF OUR FELLOW CITIZENS. WE ARE TAKEN FROM ALL OVER THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTY. BUT ALSO WE ARE BLESSED. IN MY FAMILY, WE USED TO -- WITH MY ACCENT, YOU MAY SEE THAT I AM FRENCH ORIGIN, SO WE WOULD BLESS OUR BREAD ON THE TABLE. AND WE ARE BLESSED AS ALL EYES ARE BLESSED, ALL OF OUR LIVES. WE ARE BLESSED BY LIFE, BLESSED BY GOD, BY WHAT'S CALLED A SUPERIOR POWER. AND WE ARE BLESSED BY OUR PRESENT BUT ALSO WE HAVE TO CONSIDER OUR PAST AS A BLESSING FOR TOGETHER IN THE SAME, TO BE GOOD BREAD TO BE GIVEN TO PEOPLE. SOMETIMES WE ARE BROKEN. IN MY FAMILY, WE USED TO BREAK BREAD. YOU KNOW, HERE WE USE A KNIFE. SOMETIMES WE USED NOTHING. BUT THE SYMBOL OF THIS BREAD BROKEN. AND IN OUR LIVES, WE HAVE TO ACCEPT TO BE BROKEN. OUR PROJECTS, OUR GOALS SOMETIMES ARE NOT ACHIEVED FOR WHATEVER OBSTACLE ON OUR ROAD. AND WHEN WE ARE DEDICATED TO GIVE OUR LIVES, SOMETIMES WE HAVE ENEMIES ON OUR ROAD, PEOPLE WHO DISAGREE STRONGLY. AND SOMETIMES WHEN WE MAKE DECISIONS, WE MAY LIVE IN SOME KIND OF DANGER. SO WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THESE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR LIFE AND BE BROKEN LIKE THE BREAD. WHY? BECAUSE WE ARE, DAY AFTER DAY, TOGETHER TO SERVE OUR CITIZENS. BECAUSE IT'S A GIFT AND A BLESSING. BECAUSE WE ARE CALLED TO DO THAT. WE ARE RECOGNIZED BY GOD AND RECOGNIZED BY OUR FELLOW CITIZENS. SO TODAY LET US ASK FOR OUR BLESSING, FOR GOD'S BLESSING, FOR LIFE'S BLESSING, BECAUSE WE STILL HAVE, ALL OF US, YOU KNOW HERE IN THE COUNTY AND PEOPLE IN THE ROOM TO BE GRATEFUL FOR WHO WE ARE.

SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: THANK YOU VERY MUCH. LET'S PROCEED TO THE PRESENTATIONS FOR TODAY. WE HAVE THE FOLLOWING. WE WILL ACKNOWLEDGE CHILDREN'S SUPPORT AWARENESS MONTH FOLLOWED BY SUPERVISOR YAROSLAVSKY WHO HAS ONE PRESENTATION. SUPERVISOR KNABE HAS ONE PRESENTATION. SUPERVISOR ANTONOVICH HAS THREE PRESENTATIONS. AND WE WILL PROCEED IN THAT ORDER. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE'RE PLEASED TO HAVE WITH US TODAY BOTH DR. STEVEN GOLIGHTLY, DIRECTOR OF THE CHILD SUPPORT SERVICES DEPARTMENT, AND DAVID KILGORE, CHIEF DEPUTY DIRECTOR FOR THE SAID DEPARTMENT. YOU'LL WANT TO KNOW THAT THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY CHILD SUPPORT SERVICES DEPARTMENT IS COMMITTED TO A FAMILY-CENTERED APPROACH THAT ENSURES THAT PARENTS PROVIDE APPROPRIATE FINANCIAL, PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT FOR THEIR CHILDREN. THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY CHILD SUPPORT SERVICES DEPARTMENT IS THE SECOND LARGEST LOCALLY-RUN CHILD SUPPORT AGENCY IN THE NATION. THEY ESTABLISH PATERNITY, CHILD SUPPORT AND MEDICAL SUPPORT FOR MINOR CHILDREN. DURING THE PAST TWO YEARS, THE DEPARTMENT HAS COLLECTED NEARLY $1 BILLION IN SUPPORT. THE MONEY THAT THE DEPARTMENT COLLECTS TRULY MAKES A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF THESE CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES IN OUR COUNTY. THE MONTH OF AUGUST HAS BEEN DESIGNATED AS CHILD SUPPORT AWARENESS MONTH IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, WHICH AFFORDS AN OPPORTUNITY TO EDUCATE THE PUBLIC ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF CHILD SUPPORT COLLECTIONS AND RECOGNIZE THE WORK OF CHILD SUPPORT AGENCIES TO IMPROVE THE WELL-BEING OF CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES. WE ARE HERE TODAY TO RECOGNIZE THE CHILD SUPPORT SERVICES DEPARTMENT AND ITS EMPLOYEES FOR IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES. AND WE SIMPLY WANT TO SAY WE THANK YOU FOR THE WORK THAT YOU ARE DOING IN THIS DEPARTMENT. IT IS OBVIOUSLY IMPORTANT. IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE. AND WITH THAT, WE WANT TO ASK DR. GOLIGHTLY IF HE WOULD COME FORTH AND MAKE A FEW REMARKS. STEVE?
DR. STEVEN J. GOLIGHTLY: THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR. FOR THE PROCLAMATION AND ALSO FOR THE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF OUR ACHIEVEMENTS AND OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS. THE SUPERVISOR INDICATED THAT DAVID KILGORE, OUR CHIEF DEPUTY, IS HERE WITH ME TODAY, BUT I'D LIKE TO ASK MY COLLEAGUES FROM CHILD SUPPORT WHO ARE HERE THIS MORNING TO STAND AND BE ACKNOWLEDGED BY THE FULL AUDIENCE. THESE ARE MY COLLEAGUES, SENIOR MANAGEMENT STAFF. [APPLAUSE.] VERY PROUD OF THE WORK THEY DO AND ALL OF OUR COLLEAGUES IN THE DEPARTMENT EVERY DAY. YOU KNOW, SINCE 1995 WHEN PRESIDENT CLINTON DECLARED AUGUST AS NATIONAL CHILD SUPPORT AWARENESS MONTH, WE TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY EVERY YEAR TO GO THE EXTRA MILE TO GET THE WORD OUT THAT OUR SERVICES ARE FREE AND THAT WE'RE HERE TO SERVE BOTH PARENTS AS THEY MEET THEIR OBLIGATIONS AND THEIR COMMITMENTS TO THEIR CHILDREN. WE KNOW THAT CHILD SUPPORT CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN POVERTY AND SELF-SUFFICIENCY. ABOUT 26 PERCENT OF ALL OF THE CHILDREN IN THIS NATION LIVE IN SINGLE-PARENT HOUSEHOLDS. WE KNOW HERE IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY THAT CHILD SUPPORT IS ABOUT 40 PERCENT OF THE INCOME OF THE LOW INCOME CHILDREN AND FAMILIES THAT WE SERVE. AND AS THE SUPERVISOR SAID BEFORE, WE'RE VERY PROUD OF THE FACT THAT IN THE COURSE OF THE LAST TWO YEARS, WE HAVE COLLECTED ALMOST $1 BILLION FOR THOSE CHILDREN AND THOSE FAMILIES. WE APPRECIATE ALSO, I MIGHT ADD, THAT A LOT OF FOLKS DON'T KNOW THAT CHILD SUPPORT IS ONE OF THE TOP THREE ANTI-POVERTY PROGRAMS OR INITIATIVES IN THIS NATION, ALONG WITH THE EARNED INCOME TAX CREDIT AND OF COURSE NAP AS A SAFETY NET FOR LOW INCOME CHILDREN AND FAMILIES. AGAIN, SUPERVISOR, WE APPRECIATE THE PROCLAMATION. WE APPRECIATE THE SUPPORT THAT WE GET EVERY DAY FROM THE BOARD, FROM YOUR DEPUTIES, AND FROM THE C.E.O. AND HIS STAFF. THANK YOU AGAIN. [APPLAUSE.]
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: SUPERVISOR YAROSLAVSKY, PLEASE.
SUP. YAROSLAVSKY: THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN. I'D LIKE TO ASK JULIE ADAMS TO JOIN ME UP HERE. MR. CHAIRMAN, MEMBERS OF THE BOARD, JULIE ADAMS IS A PROLIFIC MOTION PICTURE AND TELEVISION ACTRESS WHOSE CAREER HAS SPANNED MORE THAN 60 YEARS BEGINNING WITH LOW-BUDGET WESTERNS AND GRADUATING TO MAJOR FILMS FEATURING SUCH TOP STARS AS JIMMY STEWART, CHARLTON HESTON, ROCK HUDSON, TYRONE POWER, GLEN FORD, AND ELVIS PRESLEY. SHE WAS BORN IN WATERLOO, IOWA. [TO SUP. KNABE] THAT'S NOT FAR FROM WHERE YOU WERE BORN. FROM WATERLOO, IOWA WHERE SHE DEVELOPED AN EARLY INTEREST IN PERFORMING WHILE STILL IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, A CAREER DIRECTION PURSUED THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE ALL THE WAY TO HOLLYWOOD. AS A CONTRACT PLAYER FOR UNIVERSAL PICTURES IN THE 1950S, SHE SERVED ON TOUR WITH THE U.S.O., ENTERTAINING AMERICAN TROOPS ENGAGED IN THE KOREAN CONFLICT AND STATESIDE APPEARED IN MORE THAN 20 FILMS FOR THAT STUDIO, COSTARRING IN ONE OF THE FAMOUS FILMS OF THE ERA, THE SCIENCE-FICTION CLASSIC, "THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON," IN A PART FOR WHICH SHE IS PROBABLY BEST KNOWN AND REMEMBERED. DESPITE A BUSY AND DEMANDING CAREER THAT ENCOMPASSED MORE THAN 150 STAGE, FILM, AND TV ROLES, ALWAYS EAGER TO ADVISE AND MENTOR OTHER ASPIRING ACTORS OR PERFORMERS, SHE FREQUENTLY SPOKE AT TRIBUTES, FILM FESTIVALS AND SPECIAL COMMEMORATIVE SCREENINGS TO HELP PRESERVE AND PROMOTE HOLLYWOOD'S RICH LEGACY OF CINEMATIC ACHIEVEMENTS. I BELIEVE SHE'S ALSO WRITTEN A BOOK WHICH IS BEING HELD UP HERE. YOU'RE MITCH, RIGHT? MITCH STANTON. AND MITCH IS HOLDING UP THE BOOK "THE LUCKY SOUTHERN STAR: REFLECTIONS FROM THE BLACK LAGOON," A LIVELY MEMOIR OF JULIE'S SIX-DECADE HOLLYWOOD CAREER. AND WE DON'T USUALLY PROMOTE BOOKS HERE, BUT IN YOUR CASE WE MAKE AN EXCEPTION. I HAVE A COPY. I'VE GONE THROUGH SOME OF IT. AND IT'S WORTH -- IT'S A GOOD READ. SO, JULIE, WE WANTED TO BRING YOU DOWN HERE THIS MORNING TO HONOR YOU AND TO RECOGNIZE YOU AS A CITIZEN OF OUR COUNTY, AS A CONSTITUENT OF MINE, AS SOMEONE WHO'S MADE AN IMPACT ON OUR HOMETOWN INDUSTRY, THE MOTION PICTURE INDUSTRY. AND YOU HAVE A LOT OF STORIES TO TELL OVER THE SIX DECADES OF YOUR PROFESSIONAL CAREER. SO THIS IS A PROCLAMATION PRESENTED TO YOU BY THE ENTIRE BOARD, SIGNED BY ALL OF US, WHICH MAKES IT A VERY RARE DOCUMENT. AND WE WISH YOU WELL AND CONGRATULATIONS. [APPLAUSE.]
JULIE ADAMS: WELL, FIRST OF ALL, IT'S WONDERFUL TO BE HERE IN LITTLE ROCK TODAY. I WANT TO THANK MR. ZEV YAROSLAVSKY AND THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL PROCLAMATION. IT'S A GREAT HONOR TO BE RECOGNIZED BY THE BOARD. LITTLE DID I KNOW WHEN I LEFT ARKANSAS AND CAME OUT TO CALIFORNIA AS A VERY YOUNG WOMAN TO TRY TO BECOME A PROFESSIONAL ACTRESS. AND IT'S SO WONDERFUL THAT MY DREAM CAME TRUE. I DID BECOME AN ACTRESS. AND I HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO WORK IN A GREAT NUMBER OF FILMS AND WITH A LOT OF WONDERFUL PEOPLE. AND IT HAPPENED. IT HAPPENED. AND THEN IN TELEVISION. SO I'M EXTREMELY FORTUNATE. AND I'M DELIGHTED TO BE HERE TODAY WITH YOU. IT'S BEEN MY PLEASURE TO BE AN ACTRESS IN THIS TOWN AND ENTERTAIN SO MANY PEOPLE FOR SO MANY YEARS. AND I'M THRILLED TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR MY CONTRIBUTION TO THE FILM AND TELEVISION INDUSTRY IN LOS ANGELES. THIS IS A WONDERFUL PLACE, WONDERFUL PLACE TO LIVE. IT OFFERS CHANCES FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES TO CHASE THEIR DREAMS. MY LIFE AND CAREER HAVE BEEN MORE THAN I COULD EVER HAVE IMAGINED. I'M PROUD TO LIVE AND WORK IN LOS ANGELES. THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH. [APPLAUSE.]
MITCH STANTON: I'M MITCH STANTON, JULIE ADAMS' YOUNGEST SON. THESE PAST FEW YEARS I'VE HAD THE GREAT PRIVILEGE OF HELPING MOM WRITE HER AWARD-WINNING MEMOIR, "THE LUCKY SOUTHERN STAR: REFLECTIONS FROM THE BLACK LAGOON." I'VE ALSO JOURNEYED WITH MOM ALL OVER THIS GREAT COUNTRY OF OURS. IN OUR TRAVELS WE'VE MET THOUSANDS OF LOYAL FANS OF "CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON," "BEND OF THE RIVER," "MURDER SHE WROTE," "LOST," AND OTHER HIGH-PROFILE FILM AND TELEVISION PROJECTS THAT SHE WORKED ON DURING HER ILLUSTRIOUS CAREER. TO LIST HER COSTARS WOULD BE A WHO'S WHO IN HOLLYWOOD. SHE SHARED THE SILVER SCREEN WITH JAMES STEWART, ROCK HUDSON, TYRONE POWER, CHARLTON HESTON, AND EVEN THE KING OF ROCK AND ROLL HIMSELF, ELVIS PRESLEY. YET THROUGHOUT IT ALL SHE REMAINED THE SAME DOWN-TO-EARTH PERSON THAT GREW UP IN RURAL ARKANSAS. THAT'S WHAT MAKES HER ESPECIALLY POPULAR IN THE FILM COMMUNITY, THE QUALITY OF HER CHARACTER. I'D LIKE TO THINK THIS AWARD IS NOT ONLY A CALIBER OF THE ACTRESS SHE IS BUT TO THE INTEGRITY SHE HAS AS A PERSON. I HOPE MANY MORE WILL READ HER AUTOBIOGRAPHY, "THE LUCKY SOUTHERN STAR: REFLECTIONS FROM THE BLACK LAGOON," AND EXPERIENCE HER REMARKABLE STORY FOR THEMSELVES. IT IS AVAILABLE ON HER WEBSITE AT WWW.JULIEADAMS.BIZ. THOSE WHO HAVE READ THE BOOK HAVE COME AWAY WITH THE SAME IMPRESSION THAT THE L.A. COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS DID, THAT JULIE ADAMS IS MUCH MORE THAN A PRETTY FACE. SHE'S A DEDICATED ACTRESS AND A WOMAN OF HIGH CHARACTER THAT IS DESERVING OF RECOGNITION FOR HER ACCOMPLISHMENTS. SHE'S ALSO A HECK OF A WRITER. CONGRATULATIONS ON THIS AMAZING HONOR, MOM. YOU DESERVE IT. THANKS TO EVERYONE HERE WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE. THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE.]
SUP. YAROSLAVSKY: THANK YOU, MITCH, THANK YOU, JULIE, AND CONGRATULATIONS. GOOD TO HAVE YOU HERE.
JULIE ADAMS: THANK YOU.
SUP. KNABE: MR.

SO WE HAD A FEW MINUTES UPSTAIRS TOGETHER, BUT WE'D LIKE TO TAKE THIS VERY PUBLIC MOMENT TO CONGRATULATE THEM ON A GREAT EFFORT, WELCOME THEM TO LOS ANGELES COUNTY FOR THEIR CONVENTION, AND LET EVERYBODY KNOW AND SOMEBODY WILL SPEAK ABOUT IT FOR THE LATINO COMICS EXPO THIS WEEKEND AT MOLA.
JAVIER HERNANDEZ: WELL, THE SUPERVISOR SAID IT ALL, BASICALLY. BUT I WANT TO THANK THE BOARD FOR HAVING US HERE AND SUPERVISOR KNABE FOR GIVING US THIS GREAT HONOR. I MEAN THE REASON WE CREATED THE LATINO COMICS EXPO, MOST OF US LOVE COMICS, WE LIKE TO CREATE OUR OWN COMICS.

AND WE ALSO TRIED TO EMPOWER YOUNG LATINOS AND LATINAS TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES THROUGH COMICS. I TEACH A LOT OF COMIC BOOK CLASSES AND I KNOW SOME OF THE OTHER ARTISTS HERE WORK WITH CHILDREN. AND, YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE A PARENT AND YOU HAVE A CHILD, IF THEY LIKE TO CREATE THEIR OWN COMICS, PLEASE ENCOURAGE THEM BECAUSE THEY'RE EXPRESSING THEMSELVES. AND YOUR KID HAS ONE UP ON THE OTHER KID BECAUSE YOUR KID CAN WRITE AND DRAW THEIR OWN COMIC. YOU KNOW, THE OTHER KID, WELL HE CAN JUST WRITE OR SHE CAN JUST DRAW, BUT US COMIC BOOK CARTOONISTS, WE WRITE AND DRAW, SO THAT'S HOW WE EXPRESS OURSELVES. SO I WANT TO INVITE EVERYBODY AND THE BOARD DOWN TO THE MUSEUM OF LATIN AMERICAN ART. IT'S THIS WEEK, AUGUST 17 AND 18. TWO DAYS OF, WE HAVE ABOUT 50 ARTISTS AND VENDORS. WE ALSO HAVE A FULL TWO DAYS OF PROGRAMMING. I'M DOING A WORKSHOP, HOW TO SELL/PUBLISH YOUR OWN COMICS. WE HAVE A PANEL ON LATINA POWER, WANT TO MEET THE FEMALE CREATORS DOING THEIR OWN COMICS. WE HAVE A MASK MAKING WORKSHOP FOR KIDS. SO IT'S GOING TO BE TWO FULL DAYS. AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO STEWART AND YOUR GREAT STAFF AT MOLA FOR HAVING US. IT'S A GREAT VENUE. AND WE ALL ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY TO COME VISIT THE LATINO COMICS EXPO. THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE.]
