    I have a client looking for a web tool that will search multiple large pdf files on a website and return only those pages that have relevant content - not the entire files. Is this doable?

    thank you

    Zoom will show where the word is matched in the context description (on the search results page). But when you click on them, you will be taken to the entire PDF file.

    There is a setting to enable "Highlight and locate matched words within PDF document viewer". When this is enabled, and if you are using a compatible Acrobat Reader (Version 8 to 9), the document viewer will jump to the first occurrence of the match (like an automatic CTRL+F search within Acrobat Reader). But this is dependant on the viewer on the client side computer.
