I had this problem and found a solution. I had to make sure the PDF file type was added to the list of file types on my search service application. To verify this go to Central Admin > Manage service applications > Search service (your instance) > File Types (found under the crawling section). If pdf isn't there then add it. Once I restarted the search ...
I guess custom IFilters are supported in SP 2013... refer this blog post for more details. In a nutshell you have to follow usual steps for SharePoint 2010 and then use New-SPEnterpriseSearchFileFormat cmdlet.
There are many questions here: Yes indeed PDF are natively supported by SharePoint 2013 Search so no real need to install another IFilter for PDF. Have a look here http://sharepointthing.wordpress.com/2013/02/06/sharepoint-2013-search-natively-supports-pdf-ifilter/ Yes, you can have custom iFilter still as there are used by "Content Processing Component" ...
The Adobe IFilter allows to index all searchable PDF files (i.e. not the ones created by scanning a document or a book), regardless of software that was used to generate them.
I might be completely wrong but I think custom iFilters are exchanged with Content Enrichment web service for SharePoint 2013. Check this blog post out, Customize the SharePoint 2013 search experience with a Content Enrichment web service Did you ever wish you had more control over how your content is indexed and presented as search results? In ...
Image PDFs do behave differently than those created from word docs. You can probably get some OCR tools to help. Its been awhile, but I think KnowledgeLake had the ability to OCR and auto-index some of the scanned documents.

Provided that bookmarks are already defined in the PDF documents you would need to employ the Adobe PDF Parameters syntax described here http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/acrobat/PDFOpenParameters.pdf.

I cannot seem to find anything specific for SP 2013, but you may want to try this resource which identifies the steps that were used with FAST for SP 2010. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff795798(v=office.14).aspx
While you cannot reverse direction in a workflow, you CAN set the workflow properties to execute on change, where the workflow details run only when the condition is met. I've also heard of people setting a workflow to "wait" on a specific change (not highly recommended). If you could provide more details on the conditions of your workflow, I'm sure ...
FAST Search for SharePoint includes an advanced filter pack which will convert over 200 formats, which is not ifilter based. But I don't think it will do exif meta data. Office formats on the other hand has meta data extracted. As for doing exif you can install an ifilter for this, as FS4SP will use ifilters in addition to the advanced filter pack.

If the information you're after isn't there (I suspect it might be), you might be able to add another managed property to the response from the search service. You may ...
