More on Adobe Reader 6

Further to what I wrote a couple of days ago about Adobe Reader 6 for Mac OS X, I have now found a keyboard shortcut for cases when invoking the Search “pane” (for lack of a better word to describe this UI aberration) shows the results of a previous search instead of the Search field.

Pressing cmd-F a second time once the Search pane is open will initiate a “new” search. (It’s not really new because Adobe Reader still leaves the previous search words in the Search field and inexplicably puts the blink cursor after these words instead of selecting them, but that’s
another problem.)

In other words, cmd-F is effectively a keyboard shortcut for the “New Search” button in the Search pane.

Maybe I’ll also find a shortcut for the “Hide” button by accident one of these days…

Imagine a world where all software titles are designed either by Microsoft or by Adobe… On second thought, don’t. It’s too depressing.
