I have 2 PDF's (bank statements), both contain my name and address.
Agent Ransack can find part of my address in both, but only finds my name in one document.
I have tried searching for part of my name, etc, no joy.

Not all PDFs convert to text cleanly. It's something that is constantly being improved so keep checking back for updates. If you'd like more information on specific PDFs please send a sample to support@mythicsoft.com and they can analyse the PDF.

Yes Dave, I agree with you that "Not all PDFs convert to text cleanly."
So knowing this fact it may be useful to place a disclaimer for non-technical users of Agent Ransack (and perhaps your other products) stating that searches inside PDF documents may produce incomplete results.
