If i buy this program do i have to install 3rd party pdf filters to accommodate text search ability within pdf files?
I use a program called Nitro pdf whic h i believe does not have its own ifilters.. so what's the solution for internal pdf search
I am aware of Adobe's free ifilters - any use?
I DO NOT use MS Windows indexed search and have turned this function off/disabled

Yes, FileLocator Pro ships with a PDF-to-Text converter called xpdf. By default FileLocator Pro will use this PDF converter but you can switch it to use any installed IFilter by checking the Use Indexing Service Filter (if available) option in the Configuration->Extensions->PDF settings:

PDF Settings

To see a list of installed IFilters on your computer go to the Configuration->Extensions->IFilters settings.
